The A 395 begins at an interchange with the A 39 and B 248 south of Brunswick (Braunschweig). From there, the road heads in a general southerly direction, bypassing Wolfenbüttel, Schladen and other, smaller towns.
The southern end of the A 395 comes in the town of Vienenburg, at a trumpet interchange with a freeway portion of the B 6/B 6n. The B 6 continues to the south and west towards Goslar and the B 4, while the B 6n continues east towards Leipzig, eventually meeting with the A 14.
The A 395 is currently the longest three-digit autobahn in Germany, although it was formerly 7 km longer. In 2001, the section of autobahn from Bad Harzburg to Schlewecke became the northernmost part of the B 4, while the section of freeway from that point to the current southern terminus was returned to the B 6.
The northernmost 400 m of the A 395, between the junctions Braunschweig-Melverode and Braunschweig-Süd, is not considered to be part of the autobahn system. There is an at-grade entrance and exit from a large car dealership and gas station along the southbound side of the road just before Braunschweig-Melverode. Therefore, the A 395 is officially considered to start immediately after that junction.
