=== South towards [[Bielsko-Biała]], [[Czech Republic]] ===
is perhaps most reasonable to try to reach [[Tychy]] and hitchhike from there . However, hitchhiking out in southern direction is also possible from Katowice; just reach the Orlen petrol station on Trzech Stawów Street, which is adjacent to Murckowska (the big three-lane street). Don't hitch from the petrol station, too many locals! Try to catch a ride from Murckowska. Be prepared for about one hour of waiting (as did [[User:Onmyown]]; it is better during rush hour when cars go really slowly. __NOTOC__
== Sleeping out ==
In ''Dworzec PKP Tymczasowy'' (the temporary railway station ) there are guards and police who don't let you lie down on the benches or the floor. Moreover , in winter it's badly heated.Avoid this place for sleeping in peace.
