The A2 provides quick access to Braunschweig and Wolfsburg in the east and also heads west towards the Osnabrück Region, Emsland  and Grafschaft Bentheim. Smaller A-roads then provide quick access to the surrounding areas: Calenberger Land, Schaumburger Land, Weserbergland and the Middle Weser region can all be reached in under an hour.
