OSRM routing server using OpenStreetMap data

This server provides route instructions for a few select modes of transportation. It uses free and open data from the collaborative OpenStreetMap project with the routing engine OSRM. The servers are sponsored by FOSSGIS.


Map related questions are best asked at one of the places mentioned on openstreetmap.org/help

For questions about the routing engine software, OSRM, there is the mailinglist osrm-talk

You can contact the system administrators at fossgis-routing-server@openstreetmap.de


Your request for a route is sent to our server (because the route is calculated on the server and only displayed in your browser) and is saved in the server log file. Please see Datenschutzerklärung for more information on privacy.
