The Federal Highway 224 (abbreviation: B 224 ) is a trunk road in North Rhine-Westphalia . It is heavily used on the section near Gladbeck because, together with the A 52, it creates a corner connection with the A 2 in the direction of Oberhausen / Düsseldorf and the A 43 in the direction of Münster / Bremen (A 1), because the route over the Recklinghausen junction is about 7 kilometers longer.


The B 224 runs from Raesfeld in the southern Münsterland through the center of the Ruhr area via Gelsenkirchen-Buer and Essen in the Bergisches Land to Solingen .

From the Gelsenkirchen-Hassel junction, the B 224 continues on the A 52 , which ends shortly before Gladbeck and continues as the B 224. The Essen-Nord motorway junction is also part of the planned A 52.

Between the motorway intersections Velbert-Nord ( A 44 ) and Sonnborner Kreuz ( A 46 ), the B 224 was expanded like a motorway and has been part of the A 535 since September 1, 2007 .


In 1815 the Essen-Solinger Provinzialstraße was laid from Dornap to Vohwinkel . The section from Vohwinkel to Solingen was completed in 1841.

When the numbering of German trunk roads was introduced in 1932, the road from Straelen on the border with the Netherlands via Duisburg , Essen and Solingen to Lennep was designated as trunk road 60 , which in 1934 became a state road . When the Reichsstraße network was expanded in the mid-1930s, the section from Essen to Solingen became part of the new Reichsstraße 224, and from 1949 Bundesstraße 224.
