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.

If you're going past Katowice region (for example to Kraków), but your driver is turning off A4 there, then get off at MOP Rachowice at the outskirts of Gliwice - it's a great spot to find a ride further on. Otherwise you might get stuck in some very bad spot with only local traffic.

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.

Buses

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 and cost 3 Zloty (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 petrol 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

The city public transport that goes to your spot is bus 133 to Auchan. The jakdojade app and website (valid for all Polish city public transport) also lists AB bus that goes to the spot but it doesn't go on many Sundays and public holidays. There used to be other buses (stated below) but I can't confirm whether this information is still up to date.

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):

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.

If you're going past Katowice region (for example to Kraków), but your driver is turning off A4 there, then get off at MOP Rachowice at the outskirts of Gliwice - it's a great spot to find a ride further on. Otherwise you might get stuck in some very bad spot with only local traffic.

Northeast towards Łódź, Warszawa 8 E 67

Option 1: 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

Option 2: 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.

Option 3: in the west of the city you can find a roundabout in Graniczna street where it meets with Płaska street, just before the S8. There is a shopping centre nearby. You can stand in the exit of the roundabout with a Warszawa sign. There is just enough place for the cars to stop, and they are going very slow, so they can see you easily.

"We tried to get a lift in the option 2 spot for nearly two hours with not even a single car to stop. (On a week day, with a Warzsawa sign) We went a bit further then, to the first option listed here, and within less than 10 minutes we got a ride all the way to Warsaw." - Eshcar, September 2014

"" The second option to go towards Łódź or Warszawa is to take from Psie Pole a bus nr.904 to Łosice. Is it a good option because nowadays almost of all the cars go to A8, and nearby Łosice is the big parking where you can easily get a ride to Warsaw. I stayed there maybe 15minutes."" - David, April 2016

"We stayed in the option 3 spot 5 minutes and 2 cars stopped in that time. The second one drove us directly to warszawa." - Abreycierra, April 2016

"I stayed at option 3 for about 20 minutes and got a ride to 70km before my destination (Lodz) on a Sunday. Perhaps it would be worthwhile to wait a bit longer to get a ride directly to Lodz as many cars pass by this spot." - Hosni, September 2018

North towards Poznań, Bydgoszcz 5 E 261

Rafkoo hitching out towards Porznan

Hitchhiking spot: lay-by for bus 908. Bus departure from Dworzec Nadodrze station. It cost 3.40 Zl. Name of the bus station: "Lekarska". And this is your spot.

The road have been modified recently (end of 2017), so this is your best bet here. You can't walk further. Having a sign is strongly recommended as there is many directions from here. Got a ride in 20 minutes (19.01.18) for Lezsno Puckman

Northwest towards Zielona Góra, Szczecin 94 3 E 65

Take tram 10 or 20 to Leśnica from the city centre and get of on the last stop (the ride takes about 30 minutes). Then walk west, after the traffic lights there is a bus stop, from which you can hitchhike.

South towards Kłodzko, Prague (CZ) 8 E 67

Option 1

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 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)

You could use website to find connection with Magnice.

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.

Hitching in

There are a few different highways that circle around Wroclaw. If your driver isn't travelling directly to Wroclaw, it is unlikely that they will take you to the centre because it is a rather large diversion for them.

If you're driving along the A8, ask the driver to let you out at the airport. From there you can take the airport bus directly to the city centre - it is very cheap.
