=== 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.
The huge Slanski (Shlanski) park at the border between Katowice and Chorzow (Xoshov) at least in summer time, is a very good spot to wild camp. Avoid stay near the entrance and the stadium cause police or guards may annoy you, force you to go away or pay bribes. Getting inside the wood you will find for sure and easily a safe spot to sleep.
