The national highway 106 (abbreviation: B 106 ) is a German national road . It begins west of Wismar , following the B 105, runs to and around Schwerin , where it ends. Originally it continued to Ludwigslust .
In the Middle Ages and in the early modern times this road played a subordinate role as a traffic route, because since 1576 the Stör served as a shipping route between the Elbe and the Schweriner See . The Lüneburg salt was transported on this shipping route to Hohen Viecheln , and from there it was transported over the Wallensteingraben to Wismar.
With the construction of the Chaussee between Berlin and Hamburg (today's B 5 ) between 1827 and 1830, the age of road construction began in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg . The connecting route between Ludwigslust and Schwerin was built in 1836 to connect the state capital Schwerin with the Prussian road network. The construction of the road to Wismar began as early as 1830.
In Schwerin the street layout changed after the political change with the construction of a bypass road . After the completion of a further construction phase in September 2007, the B 106 runs continuously in four lanes through the outskirts of the city to the west past the city center.
Due to the opening of the Mecklenburg section of the A 14 in December 2015, the B 106 was rededicated on January 1, 2016 between Schwerin and its previous end on the B 5 in Ludwigslust to the state road 72 of the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The largely parallel course of the main road and the motorway is decisive for the rededication.
