Oostende is a city in West-Vlaanderen, Belgium.

Hitchhiking out

East towards Brugge, Gent, Brussels and Antwerpen

The best place is the traffic lights at the crossing of the Elisabethlaan and the Gistelsesteenweg. Other untried options are the entries onto the the President Kennedyplein on the other sides, i.e. from the Ringlaan or the Verenigde Natieslaan. The President Kennedyplein can easily be reached by foot from the town center, which is just over 2 km away.

Personal Experiences

The spot towards Brugge, Gent, Brussels and Antwerpen has been used by Prino many times. It seems to be the best. There is no decent place to stop when coming from the center via the Verenigde Natieslaan and at the entry onto the President Kennedyplein from the Ringlaan most drivers will be more preoccupied watching the traffic while trying to enter the round-about.
