Wrocław (pronounced vrots-wahf) is a city in southwestern Poland.

Hitchhiking out

West towards Berlin, Dresden (D) A 4 E 40

Take the bus to ""Auchan"" shopping center from main bus station ([1]). It costs 1,50 Zloty. Get off at the last stop and you will see a petrol station from there. Just go directly towards it without crossing any streets (only these belonging to Auchan's car park). On the petrol station you can ask people for a ride or try to hitch on a sliproad next to the station.

You can also take Tesco bus from the crossroad of Hallera and Powstańców Sląskich or Wroclaw EPI station (close to main bus station) to shopping center Bielany (timetable; ). It costs 3 Zloty. Get off at the last stop, go right along the Tesco (way back) to Czekoladowa street, then turn left (along the Tesco), then cross the street, go under the bridge (motorway), turn right and go along the motorway across the field, you'll get to the petrol station and you will be in the same place as in the Auchan bus option.

Those buses also go to that area: (they cost 3 Zloty):

All time tables: timetables; (Rozklad jazdy - time table, Dni robocze - weekdays, Soboty - Saturdays, Niedziele - Sundays)

862 - Main Train Station (Dworzec PKP) -> Wroclaw Krzyki -> Bielany MAKRO

872 - Wroclaw Krzyki -> Bielany MAKRO

852 - Wroclaw Krzyki -> Bielany Wr. - Centrum Handlowe

892 - Wroclaw Krzyki -> Bielany MAKRO

Or take tram 17 to Klecina (20min from main station). Get out at the final stop, walk back some meters and turn right to Skrajna street. After 150m turn left and after 50m right again into Jeździecka street. After 200m you will reach a main street that goes directly to the motorway A4. There is a big BP petrol station, the last one before the motorway, where you can ask people. It's about 30 minutes walking.

"Hitchhikewoman Jack stood there over one hour on a Monday at 06.30! Everybody went towards Krakow. If this is happening you, ask drivers to drop you off near the motorway, and walk to Orlen gas station (See above)."

On the left there's Tesco market and the petrol station for rides to the east, on the right would be Auchan market and you can see the petrol station for rides towards Germany

East towards Katowice, Kraków A 4 E 40

Take the bus to ""Auchan"" shopping center from main bus station ([2]). It costs 1,50 Zloty. Get off at the last stop, go over the bridge on the highway. You will see red petrol station ""Orlen"" alongside motorway.You can hitchiking there.

You can also take Tesco bus from the crossroad of Hallera and Powstańców Sląskich or Wroclaw EPI station (close to main bus station) to shopping center Bielany (timetable; ). It costs 3 Zloty. Get off at the last stop, go right along the Tesco (way back) to Czekoladowa street, then turn left (along the Tesco), then turn right to cross the street and go straight along the motorway across the field (don't go under the bridge) and one small exit from the motorway, you'll get to the petrol station where you can ask people for a ride or try to hitch on a sliproad next to the station (the same situation as going towards Germany, you're just on the other side of the motorway). The sliproad is very easy to hitch from with a lot of traffic moving slowly round a bend, where they can see you and stop easily. Theinefficienthitchhiker would recommend this spot.

Those buses also go to that area: (they cost 3 Zloty):

Somebody hitching to east / E 40 on Google Street View

Northeast towards Łódź, Warszawa 8 E 67

Take bus 604 to the end of route. From there you have to only cross the tracks on the left and you will be on very long straight road with very wide shoulder of road. Another option to go there is taking the bus D, and go to the end of route and from there you have to cross a few building and go to the road (more or less 800m). You will be in the same place from first option but on the second side of road.

"It's very good place, a lot of times I caught a ride from there directly to Warsaw. If you go to Warsaw use the sign <<Warszawa>>." - Anonymous

It's possible to take the bus 128, getting off at the stop Psie Pole, and walk in the direction of the train station. Start hitching in front of the train station, before the bus stop (the train station is on the opposite side of the road). You can also take the train from main station "Wrocław Główny" to station "Psie Pole". It's better option than bus cause this will take you 20 minutes.

North towards Poznań, Bydgoszcz 5 E 261

Take tram 1, 7 or 15 direction Marino and get off at the last stop. Then go to the other side of the main road and start hitching at the bus stop. You will be well seen by the drivers who stop at traffic lights. You can also take the bus 129 - direction Ośrodek Rehabilitacji, get off at the stop Marino and start hitching.

NEED TO BE UPDATED when the work on the road will be over : A ring road is now finished and most of the traffic to the north is passing a few hundred meters away. It's now senseless to hitch at Marino. You still can come to Marino and then walk until you pass the ring "bridge"and hitch there, cars have space to stop on the speeding up lane. I don't thinks it worth to go further for now since there is work on the road and cars wont have space to stop and they will not see you. I think they are working on the A8 and I expect the hitch hiking spot to change when they finish. The bus 129 (and some others) has some stop after Marino but I don't know the bus stop's name. --Bikepunk 16:00, 9 August 2011 (CEST)


Update of 23.09.2011

There has been recently created a perfect spot to hitch direction north (by the NR#5 to Poznań).

It is a lay-by for buses #308 timetable &#809 timetable. It is situated 50 meters right on slip-off from the roundabout.

The bus stop is called "Żmigrodzka (Obwodnica)"

The merged traffic from the city center and the transit one from the A4 motorway is brought here by the newly constructed Wroclaw Ringroad(A8)& passes U by :-). Cars go slowly while leaving the roundabout so driver can see you easily & has enough time to pull over. It is also a place of a frequent traffic jam occurance

As 1 image is worth 1000 words- have a look @ my photo of the place

So once U manage to take one of the buses It will bring U directly to the hitching spot.

Both timetables show departure times from Wrocław Nadodrze bus station. Here is its exact location shown on the googlemaps

U may still come to Marino bus stop and walk up to the round about Here is the bus #129 itinerary visualized on the map (scroll down the page) together with the line timetable to make it easy to find the closest place to get into the bus. --Jurarafal 17:42, 26 September 2011 (CEST)

South towards Kłodzko, Prague (CZ) 8 E 67

Option 1

Update of 30.06.2014

Take the bus to the village Magnice. This is the place that ring road and old road cross and all the traffic in direction of south has to pass there. This place is even better as it is the a bus station straight after the traffic lights, so cars go slower. The bus costs 4,50 Zloty.

All time tables: timetables; (Rozklad jazdy - time table, Dni robocze - weekdays, Soboty - Saturdays, Niedziele - Sundays)

These buses go to Magnice:

862 - Main Train Station (Dworzec PKP) -> Wroclaw Krzyki -> Magnice

872 - Wroclaw Krzyki -> Magnice

little longer way:

852 - Wroclaw Krzyki -> Magnice

892 - Wroclaw Krzyki -> Magnice

Option 2

Take the Auchan bus from inside Dworzec PKS (the main bus station) to Bielany shopping centre and get off at the last stop. It costs 1,50 Zloty. Walk along the main road which goes above the motorway till you get to the bus stop just after the traffic lights, where you can hitch.

Option 3

Take Tesco bus from the crossroad of Hallera and Powstańców Sląskich or Wroclaw EPI station (close to main bus station) to shopping center Bielany (timetable; ). It cost 3 Zloty. When you get there you must go behind the shopping center and get to the bridge which is above the road you're at. The best road to Prague is the one through Kudowa Zdroj and Hradec Kralove becouse all of the trucks are going this way (E67).

Warning

In case of getting a lift which will be crossing going by any other place than Kudowa Zdroj, DO NOT take it (only if you can drive directly to Prague or Hradec Kralove). All other roads (as Miedzylesie - Mladkovske sedlo) are pretty dead and you might find it very difficult to get a lift in there.

Public Transport

There is a good website showing you how to get from one point to another by public transport in major Polish cities (in Polish and English).

Free Internet Access

One of the tourist information centers on the Rynek - one that is also a coffee shop - has two computers with free internet access for tourists. Only internet/email - no VOIP, etc. - and only 20 minutes per person. It's on the inside of the square, facing south, right next to the church and behind a statue.

There is also a list of free public wifi spots in city centre with map included:
