|International E-road network|
The E 233 has a total length of 135 kilometres, and serves as the connector between the E 37 and the E 232. From east to west the following highways share junctions with the E 233:
The Dutch section of the route is constructed as a motorway, while the German section is non-motorway (Bundesstrasse). Initially, the route connected Cloppenburg with Oldenzaal, where it joined the E 30. However, the Dutch national government wanted to promote a better connection of the province of Drenthe to Lower Saxony, thus the route was changed in the early 1990s.
Before the renumbering of the E-roads in the 1980s, this route was known as the E 72.
