Ulm is a middle sized German city in Baden-Württemberg, east of Stuttgart and west of Munich.

Hitchhiking out

East or West (Stuttgart, München) Bundesautobahn 8 number.svg

If you want to go towards Stuttgart this spot is perfect. There is an Esso petrol station at the B10/B28 just before the IKEA intersection. It takes about 10 minutes to get on from there. If you get dropped off at the trainstation you can get there easily by taking the crossover left of it, going right and left again into Bleichstraße. At the end of it you will find the petrol station. If you want to go towards Nürnberg it is more time consuming, but within an hour you should get away (one hour for one girl hitchhiking on her own). Otherwise try getting to the Spot in Neu-Ulm directly.

South towards Memmingen Bundesautobahn 7 number.svg

If you want to go south you can try the service station on the other side of the road. It is not perfect, but also works.

North or South towards Austria, Würzburg Bundesautobahn 7 number.svg

If you want to travel on the A7 try to start directly in Neu-Ulm.

Another possibility to get to the A7 that is much faster in some anonymous hitchhikers opinion: Take bus #58 from the main bus station (near train station) towards direction Albeck and get out at Rasthaus Seligweiler (There is a bus every hour) Link to this place.

There is a bus station where you can hitchhike easily towards direction Heidenheim (it's a small motorway, that leads to the A7). You need to ask the driver if he goes at least to Autobahnraststätte Lonetal. From Rasthaus Seligweiler it's also very easy to get on the A8 in both directions (Stuttgart or Munich).
