Hasselt is a city in the east of Belgium. It is the regional capital of the Belgian province Limburg.

Hitchhiking out

West towards Antwerp or Leuven and Brussels

Take the free(!) bus H1 in the direction of "Spalbeek" or "Kermt", you can take this bus at various places in Hasselt, including the train-station. Get out at the busstop "Kuringen - Stevoortse Kiezel", right after the bridge and the highway entrance towards Antwerpen/Brussels and walk back the 100 meters to the entrance. It takes the bus about ten minutes from the train-station to get there. It is probably the best hitchhiking spot in this direction, since the cars don't drive fast and there's a place where they can easily stop without blocking the traffic. Waiting times are on average 5 to 10 minutes.

All the motorway ramps in Hasselt are suitable for east- and west directions.

Public transport

Public transport in the center of the city is free.
