Cheb (German: Eger) is a nice historical town in the Czech Republic worth a short visit. As many other Czech towns near borders Cheb is filled with night clubs and prostitutes. It's good to clearly inform drivers that you're hitchhiker by a sign and backpack.

Hitching out

East towards Carlsbad, Prague 6 E 48 E 49

Viaduct

Spot at the mapHitchability: 3/5 Average.png (average) based on 1 ratingAverage waiting time: 28min based on 3 experiences
Find Tesco and walk along it towards railway bridge. Just before the bridge is a small crossroad with traffic lights where it's possible to hitchhike. Drivers have many directions so good sign can help (write KV for Carlsbad).

10 km after this spot is ONO petrol station with lot of drivers in every direction. If you get a ride to Sokolov jump of at the first petrol station at the highway. If you're going to Prague and get a ride to Pilsen, take it and get off at some petrol station at the 5 motorway.

Southeast towards Pilsen 21

ONO

Spot at the mapHitchability: 4/5 Good.png (good) based on 1 ratingAverage waiting time: 18min based on 5 experiences
This is better spot but you can get here only by hitched ride or long walk (~10 km). Basically any driver from the city can take you here, ask for ONO petrol station. Once you get there, you can ask drivers at the station or hitch just behind crossroad next to it. There's a small place to stop.

Don't expect direct ride to Pilsen, good places on the way are bus stops in Drmoul, Chodová Planá and just before 5 (there's also good petrol station).

West towards Marktredwitz, Bayreuth 6 E 48

Road 606

Walk like 1.5 km out of town on road 606 direction west and try to catch a lift for the 6 km till Pomezí nad Ohří where you can enter E48.
Or simply take a bus to Pomezí nad Ohří for 12 CZK (Expression error: Unrecognized word "error". €) from the bus station in front of the train station (Hlavní nádraží). Check [jizdnirady.idnes.cz] for connections.
In Pomezí nad Ohří you don't have to stand at the junction - there is also a petrol station at the motorway.

Zlatý vrch

Leave the center in the north direction (Františkovy lázně). When you'll be on the top of the hill you can hitch with a sign at the bus stop "Zlatý vrch". Behind it is also petrol station where you can ask. Or you can walk even further and try to hitch behind the big junction.

North towards , Hof 64 + Plauen 21 E 49

Zlatý vrch

Leave the center in the north direction (Františkovy lázně). When you'll be on the top of the hill you can hitch at the bus stop "Zlatý vrch". Behind it is also petrol station where you can ask. Most of drivers are going to Aš. From there is fair traffic to Selb which is next to German motorway A 93.
