Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello, I am just starting to use openstreetmap and usually I am not that stupid in getting used to new plattforms - but in this case I am: How do I search for more than one place/ city etc. in order to get a possible path from the one place to the other one? (from Hamburg to Leipzig for example/ my home street to the street of my uni?)

I'd be thankful for any advice as I'd very much like to use openstreetmap in exchange to googlemaps.

Thanks! Manuel

*also in order to find out the distance from one to another place.

First of all, it's not a silly question. Adding routing support to the front page of OpenstreetMap.org has been a goal for some time now, but it's not available there currently. However, there are a number of other sites that use OpenStreepMap data that do support routing. Here's one, and here's another. And here are more (and info about routing with OSM).
