The German federal highway 81 (abbreviation: B 81 ) serves as a connection between Magdeburg , Halberstadt and Nordhausen .


It begins in the urban area of ​​Magdeburg in Saxony-Anhalt on federal highway 71 . The junction of the A 14 is just before the southern end of Magdeburg . This is followed by the Langenweddingen bypass . South of the Langenweddingen location, the B 81 crosses the federal highway 246a , which leads from the direction of Wanzleben (west) towards Schönebeck (Elbe) (east).

In the area of ​​the Egeln bypass , the federal road 180 joins the B 81 from the direction of Wanzleben. In the further course of this bypass, the river Bode is crossed . Then the federal road 180 joins from the direction of Aschersleben .

The B 81 continues over the Kroppenstedt bypass built in 2007/2008 and again crosses the Bode in the course of the Gröningen bypass .

Shortly before Halberstadt it crosses the federal highway 245 from the direction of Schwanebeck and Eilsleben , in Halberstadt it meets the federal highway 79 . The B 81 then connects the city of Halberstadt with the North Harz Autobahn Bundesstraße 6n in the west. Therefore, a motorway-like expansion of this section of the route is still required in the federal traffic route plan .

The B 81 crosses the federal motorway 36 at the junctions Halberstadt / Heimburg and Blankenburg- Mitte. In Blankenburg it meets the federal highway 27 .

The B 81 continues through the Harz Mountains . About 6 km after Blankenburg, the main road meets the small town of Wendefurth . Below the Wendefurth dam , the B 81 crosses the Bode and then leads on the Wendefurther Steige to the upper basin of the Wendefurth pumped storage plant .

After another 7 km comes the climatic health resort Hasselfelde , where the B 81 meets the federal road 242 .

Finally, the B 81 leads over the state border of Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia to Netzkater, a district of Ilfeld , where it ends at the intersection with Bundesstraße 4 .

State of development

From its beginning in Magdeburg, the B 81 has been developed with four lanes and is similar to a motorway. The main road originally began in the Magdeburg district of Leipziger Straße south of Magdeburg Central Station and continues as Halberstädter Straße or Chaussee through Sudenberg and Ottersleben to Langenweddingen. The Langenweddingen railway accident occurred on the route, which was downgraded to a municipal road , in which, according to official information, 94 people were killed on July 6, 1967.

In the further course up to the confluence of the federal highway 180 from the direction of Wanzleben, the old route was built over by the “yellow motorway”. In the area of ​​the Egeln bypass, the new road has four lanes, but is no longer free of intersections. After that, only the Kroppenstedt and Gröningen bypasses were implemented in two lanes.

The Halberstadt and Blankenburg bypasses are classified as urgent in the current federal traffic route plan. The planning is currently underway. The Hasselfelde bypass is still required.
