Bundesautobahn 241 (translates from German as Federal Motorway 241, short form Autobahn 241, abbreviated as BAB 241 or A 241) was an autobahn in Germany. It led around Schwerin and is now part of the A 14.

An extension of the autobahn to the A 20 had been planned in 1992, but failed to be realized due to financial and environmental factors. The current extension will not be finished before 2009.

The former A 241 never carried much traffic because Schwerin can be reached from the A 24, a much shorter connection. Also, Wismar could only be reached from the A 241 by driving through narrow avenues, so that the B 106 became the preferred route. More traffic can be expected to flow once the gap is closed and the junction Schwerin-Süd is finished.

On August 24, 2006, the part between the Kreuz Wismar and the junction Jesendorf was opened for traffic. This 11 km long segment of the road cost over €50 million to construct. Once completed, the A 241 will be renumbered as part of the A 14.
