Germany

. It is also quite common to arrange '''a ride in a private vehicle''' in advance through on offline agency or the Internet. Offline agencies like Citynetz or ADM have offices in major cities, mostly near the city centre or the main railway station. These offline agencies charge a commission to the cost for fuel you need to pay for the driver. In the recent, years online services to arrange rides in private vehicles became very popular, as both parties do not have to pay the commission to traditional agencies. You need to contribute only towards fuel costs. (example: Frankfurt to Berlin €25). You can contact the driver directly by e-mail, phone or sms. As the drivers need to be registered, it is safer than hitchhiking. Hitchhikers is a comparable service, multilingual and free. Mitfahrgelegenheit and Mitfahrzentrale are other well known players with plenty of rides in their databases. Mitfahrzentrale even operates all over Europe. Raumobil is a new player in the market but a more private-run affair. Mitflugzentrale arranges '''rides in private planes'''. Another form of hitchhiking available in Germany is on the trains. People purchase a Wochenende-ticket (weekend ticket) which allows them to take up to four other people with them on the regional transports for the entire weekend. To hitch a ride with these travellers, first figure out which regional transportation you will need to take in order to reach your destination. You may figure that out online at the national railway network website, making sure to check "regional transportation only" or train stations in major cities have computer terminals in which you can do the same. Then, just hop on the train that is going your way. Usually, within each carriage you'll find someone willing to let you tag along. "Haben Sie ein Wochenendeticket?" ''Do you have a weekend ticket?'' "Darf ich bei Ihnen mitfahren?" ''May I travel with you?''. Just make sure it is the right train and the weekend.

There is also a substantial network of well signed, long distance bike routes. If there is a cycleway parallel to the road posted with white-on-blue "Cycle" signs (see right), cyclist ''must'' use this. In some towns bike lanes are marked by dark red paving stones in the main walking area. Be careful though, as cyclists and pedestrians tend to drift across these boundaries. Cyclists are expected to follow the same road rules as motor vehicles. Being drunk on a bicycle is regarded the same as when driving a motor vehicle - so you risk losing your driving licence, however the limit is higher with only a blood alcohol level of more than 1.3 parts per thousand including a mandatory fine. Most rail stations, shopping areas, hotels and business premises have bike stands (some covered) with a place to attach your own bike locking chain. On regional trains there is usually one carriage that allows you to bring your bike on board. Intercities also allow taking a bike, ICEs however don't. If you want to take your bike on a long distance bus you have to order that several days ahead and may not be succesful, as the storage room for bikes is very limited (only two or three per bus). Several German cities now offer bike-share programmes, most run by either nextbike (www.nextbike.de) or Deutsche Bahn subsidiary call a bike. They are a great way to go short distances within a city but not the best option for longer tours, because the maximum rental time is usually 24 hours. Classic bike rentals still exist in many city as well as in smaller villages clost to the coast that see many tourists. They often require a deposit or ID card for rental.
