=== 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 ==
New railway station works and it is open already. As long as you are not looking for a place where you can sleep on your foam mattress (most probably security wont let you do that) but you need to spend a night somewhere, it is a really great option.
Heated well during the winter and it has got 24h
McDonald in there. Also free WiFi is provided. Just keep in mind that the railway station has got maintance break from 1:30 AM to 2:30 AM
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.
