The national highway 187 (abbreviation: B 187 ) is a German federal highway in the states of Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg . It has a length of 70.3 km and starts in Dessau-Roßlau north of the Elbe to Schönewalde in Brandenburg.
The number 187 was already assigned in the Third Reich during the second phase of Reichsstrasse numbering around 1937.
In the following, the sights on the edge of the route that can be reached from the B 187 are described.
Before Coswig (Anhalt) the B 187 crosses the federal autobahn 9 (junction 8). A large industrial area is then reached. The city area is passed through a two-lane one-way street (ring). The federal highway 107 and federal highway 187a as well as the Elbe ferry to Wörlitz are connected here. The castle and the town hall are visible on the right.
In the urgent need of the federal traffic route plan, a bypass to the north is planned - this should lead back into the original route of the B 187 at the Wittenberg district of Apollensdorf (status: 2009).
The Lutherstadt Wittenberg is reached in the district of Griebo . First, several large industrial areas such as the agrochemical park with SKW Piesteritz will be passed. The Wittenberg Castle with the tower of the Castle Church is clearly visible : Here Martin Luther proposed his 95 theses against the indulgence trade in 1517 . From the castle, the B 187 is combined as the Wittenberg southern bypass with the federal highway 2 and four lanes. At the junction to the Elbe bridge in Wittenberg , traffic over the Elbe is bundled as the B 2 - but the B 187 runs further north of the Elbe as an inner-city distributor of the traffic flow. The Lutherhaus is briefly visible on the left - it can be reached via the station bridge.
The B 187 then runs along the old route of Dresdener Straße to the end of the town.
In the further requirements of the federal traffic route plan (status 2009) a “northern bypass” is planned, which should begin in the district of Apollensdorf. It should then pass through the city to the north and meet at the district Karlsfeld on the federal highway 2 and the "Ostum bypass": This would close the ring around Wittenberg.
A long street village is passed with Mühlanger . Here too (as of 2009) a northern bypass is being discussed intensively.
In the middle of the forest there is a junction to Gorsdorf- Hemsendorf - there is a moated castle with a park.
Now Jessen is reached: This small town is one of the largest cities in Germany in terms of area because of its many incorporations . First, a large industrial area is passed: It is worth emphasizing that the Aqua Orbis company breeds sturgeon and produces caviar here . The city's castle is worth seeing. It is the seat of the city administration.
On the way to the Schweinitz district you will pass one of the northernmost wine-growing regions in Germany: the slopes of the Schwarzen Elster are characterized by an above-average amount of sunshine.
