The national highway 180 (abbreviation: B 180 ) is a German national road in the country Saxony-Anhalt and the Free States of Thuringia and Saxony . Between Freyburg and Zeitz , the B 180 is part of the Romanesque Road .
Road construction between Altenburg and Naumburg (Saale) began in 1815 and was completed before 1845. The subsequent section between Naumburg and Freyburg (Unstrut) was expanded into a Chaussee in 1847 . Two years later (1849) road construction from Freyburg (Unstrut) to Querfurt was continued.
Previous routes and names
The 213 km long Reichsstraße 180 between Egeln and Stollberg was introduced around 1937. This road was completely on the territory of the GDR from 1949 to 1990 and was designated as Fernverkehrsstrasse 180 (abbreviation F 180 ).
Until the end of 2019, the B 180 continued north from Egeln via Etgersleben , Klein Germersleben and Bottmersdorf to the Rittertor roundabout in Wanzleben. The B 246 was crossed. After the expansion of the B 81, this road was downgraded because the traffic shifted to the B 81 and the local B 180 has lost its importance.
The federal road 180 runs in the Saxony-Anhalt part through the Magdeburg Börde , the agricultural eastern Harz and the wine-growing areas of Saale and Unstrut in the Saale-Unstrut-Triasland nature park .
- Salzlandkreis (license plateSLK)
The Salzlandkreis is crossed by the B 180 from north to south. Starting west of Egeln on the B 81, the B 180 runs in two lanes in a southerly direction. After 5.8 km the village of Schneidlingen is reached. The Magdeburg-Cochstedt airport is then affected 3.2 km south . After another 4 km you will pass the Aschersleben district of Winningen , another 4 km behind it is the junction "Aschersleben-Mitte" of the North Harz motorway A 36 . This is followed by the previously mentioned former district town of Aschersleben . Here the road crosses the Halle – Vienenburg railway line and the B 185 . The federal highway 180 runs for about 5.4 km in the urban area of Aschersleben. The Aschersleben-Quenstedt bypass is currently being planned. The northern, 1st construction section which connects the junction "Aschersleben-West" of the A 36 (until 2019: B 6n ) with the B 185 has already been opened to traffic and is already signposted as the B 180. The district boundary is one kilometer behind the southern exit of the town.
- Mansfeld-Südharz district (license plateMSH)
Quenstedt , which is crossed on Eislebener Strasse, is 2.5 kilometers behind the district boundary . In the further course the district Pfersdorf is crossed. After a further kilometer, the Hettstedt bypass , completed in 2009, begins , which not only frees the town of Hettstedt but also the towns of Walbeck and Siersleben from through traffic. At Mansfeld , 9 km behind the start of the bypass road, the Wipper river is crossed on the 200 m long Wipper bridge. The road then leads past Klostermansfeld . This is where the tracks of the will Mansfeld Mining Railway , the railway Klostermansfeld-Wippra and the Berlin-Blankenheim Railway bridges or underpasses.
Between Mansfield and Klostermansfeld the local bypass is after completion Annarode - Siebigerode -Mansfeld of B 86 , a new node to be built. The route between the Sangerhausen- South junction on the A 38 , the junction of the B 86 and B 180 at Mansfeld-Klostermansfeld and the " Aschersleben- West" junction on the A 36 will replace the A 71 north extension between the southern Harz motorway triangle ( A 38 and A 71) near Sangerhausen and the Plötzkau junction on the A 14 for traffic on the Erfurt-Magdeburg-Schwerin route completely free of local traffic. The state of Saxony-Anhalt is keeping the route free for a possible later construction of the A 71 north extension.
The section between Klostermansfeld and the Eisleben bypass has been expanded to three lanes due to the inclines (4th construction phase of the OU Hettstedt). To the east of Volkstedt is the 16 km long bypass of Lutherstadt Eisleben . The river Böse Sieben is crossed on it, then the B 80 is crossed east of the city . To the south of this, the small mountain range Hornburger Sattel is crossed. Here the bypass crosses the original route, then the Rothenschirmbach district of Eisleben is bypassed. The bypass ends at motorway junction 19 of the A 38 , "Lutherstadt Eisleben". The district boundary follows 500 m behind.

After crossing the border, the Meuselwitz district of Brossen is touched first after 1.3 km . This is followed by the entrance to the town of Meuselwitz itself after 900 m , which is driven through over a length of 3.5 km. From the exit of the village, the road runs in a straight line to the southeast, after 1.8 km you will pass through Kriebitzsch , after another 2.4 km you will reach Rositz . Here the path is slightly winding. After leaving Rositz, the road leads past the Wilhelm-Pieck-Siedlung and the industrial area, which also belongs to Lödla , to the district town of Altenburg . Here the road first runs in a south-easterly direction, then turns to the northeast, crosses under the railroad tracks at Altenburg station , then turns again to the north, then leaves the city and leads to the bypass road at the Windischleuba industrial estate . The route just described is five kilometers long. The Altenburg bypass leads past the city to the east, the federal highway 180 runs along it together with the federal highways 7 and 93 .

After the border with Thuringia has been crossed, the road runs south-east, the two Oberwiera districts Niederwiera and Wickersdorf are crossed, then the road descends after two kilometers near Waldenburg into the valley of the Zwickauer Mulde , which is crossed here. The B 175 also branches off there. After leaving Waldenburg the Waldenburger Forst is passed, then after one kilometer Callenberg is passed. Here, the road turns to the south and then runs four kilometers through fields until the exit 65 of the A 4 hits. Here it turns to the east, passes the Pfaffenberg and then turns to the south. A forest is crossed over a length of three kilometers, the road leads past Hohenstein-Ernstthal and the Sachsenring race track in the west .

- Erzgebirgskreis (license plateERZ)
After one kilometer in the direction of travel east, the road turns south at the entrance to Lugau , and in the center it turns back to the south-west. The path now leads through a housing estate that connects Lugau with Niederwürschnitz . In the latter location, the Stollberg – St. Egidien crossed, after leaving the village the road climbs to the edge of the Ore Mountains. First, however, the A 72 is crossed, at the roundabout at the entrance to Stollberg , about 200 m afterwards the route branches off to the south to bypass the city. After one and a half kilometers to the south, the main road meets the B 169 . Here the road turns east again, bridges the little river Gablenz and runs on a new line to Zwönitzer Strasse east of Stollberg. On this the road runs back to Stollberg, in order to turn east in the district of Hoheneck onto Thalheimer Straße and thus onto the old route. After one kilometer the road enters a forest, here the path climbs up a small serpentine to a height of 540 meters (Stollberg-Hoheneck is at a height of 482 meters). The tobacco fir is there . After the height has been overcome, the road falls again to the 440 meter high valley of the Zwönitz . Here is Thalheim , in the city center, the road branches off again to the northeast. Two kilometers after Thalheim, the main road follows the Zwönitz, it crosses the municipality of Burkhardtsdorf : first the district Meinersdorf , then after three kilometers the main town Burkhardtsdorf, where the B 95 crosses the path, then the districts Neu Eibenberg (after two kilometers) and Kemtau (after one kilometer). The community will now be abandoned and the Zwönitz valley will be followed to Dittersdorf . The river now runs north, but the route of the B 180 turns east. At Weißbach , the road turns north again and after 2.5 kilometers it crosses the B 174, which has been developed like a motorway . 500 meters behind it, the B 180 turns east, crosses half of Gornau and then turns north again. After two kilometers you will pass the elongated Dittmannsdorf , it is located in the valley of a stream, which the main road follows up to the district boundary three kilometers to the north.
- Central Saxony district (license plateFG)
Immediately after the border of the district, the path leads into the valley of the Zschopau by following a stream to its mouth at Kunnersdorf . Now the road follows the valley, behind a bend in the river you will pass Erdmannsdorf . Then the federal road 180 leads between a forest and the Zschopau in a northerly direction to Plaue , three kilometers away , where the river is crossed. Plaue merges seamlessly into the city of Flöha . The federal road follows the river for about one kilometer before it swings right at the "Old Cotton" onto the new section of the future federal road B 173n, which was opened in December 2012. The B 180 follows this course of the road for about four kilometers to the B 173 just outside of Niederwiesa. It turns to the northeast, crosses under the tracks of the Dresden – Werdau railway line and crosses the Zschopau river on the so-called “Landbrücke”. Then the two federal highways separate again, the B 173 continues east and the B 180 turns north to leave the Zschopau valley. Now the road runs over a small ridge and past the village of Altenhain until, after three kilometers, you reach the town of Frankenberg / Sa. reached. Here the path drops back into the Zschopautal, then the B 180 meets the B 169 , where it ends.
Parts of the road between Kunnersdorf and Erdmannsdorf slipped in 2006. An approx. 400 m long section is only passable with one lane, oncoming traffic is secured with a set of traffic lights. The section is also closed to vehicles over 3.5 t as well as pedestrians and cyclists. No repairs were carried out until November 2018.
