Hitching away from Liège is said to be difficult, because of the so-called ''Spaghetti Motorway system''. On the other hand it is not impossible to get lifts along the former transit-route of the E25 straight through the city of Liege alongside the Maas-river. Provided you are familiar which used to be the pre-motorway era transit route you can quite successfully hitch out of Liege along that transit route using a sign Lux (embourg) or Arlon heading towards the Ardennes, or a sign Vise, Maastr (icht) or NL heading north. The transit route, not marked anymore by signs "transit" these days, remains the fastest way to get through Liege by car during most of the time.
== Hitchhiking out ==
Get bus 66 (direction ''Herstal'') from the main train station. Get off in an industrial estate beside the motorway. Near here there is a motorway exit for traffic going towards Maastricht, etc. This access lane next to the bridge ''Pont de l'Atlas'', about 700 meter from ''Liege-Bressoux'' train station. Best to use a sign ''Maastr.'' or ''NL'' or simply a lot of self confidence ;)
=== Heading South for [[Luxembourg]], etc ===
Alternatively you can take the bus 65 and go down at the bus stop Chênée. There you will have to walk 500 m until the traffic light, just before the entrance of the motorway.
=== Heading West for [[Leuven]], [[Brussels]] or [[Namur]], [[Charleroi]] ===
There are some fairly average on-ramps to the [[A602_(Belgium)|E25/A602]] within walking distance of the city centre. [[User:Tmoon|Tom]] tried the on-ramp on Rue St. Laurent, which worked fine for him. The on-ramp on Jardin Jean-Bernard Lejeune looks like another good option.
*On the [[A3_(Belgium)|E40/A3]] to Brussels, the first service station is "[[Bettincourt Noord]]", north of [[Waremme]], about 25km from Liège.
*On the [[A15_(Belgium)|E42/A15]] to Charleroi, the first service station is "[[Verlaine Nord]]", northeast of [[Huy]], about 20km from Liège.
