Some Altmarkers also cross the Elbe by ferry on their daily journey to work
The daily commute to work
Between home and work
People who work in the town where they live appreciate the short commute to work by bike or on foot. But many Altmarkers commute to their place of work every day, sometimes even as far as Magdeburg, Berlin or Wolfsburg. The good transport connections make this possible.
The Altmark is perfect for commuters: you can live affordably here and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside at home after work and the hectic pace of the city. As a commuter, you benefit from the excellent transport connections in the region, which make commuting to the surrounding cities of Berlin, Magdeburg, Hamburg or Hanover possible. But there are also many commuters within the Altmark, where a combination of country life in your own house and working in the city is simply easy to realise. Both the federal road network and the good railway connections connect the Altmark and the surrounding area, with the A14 motorway also being added soon.
More information about the ferry service is provided by the district of Stendal:Landkreis Stendal
