Arrival by train
Basel is an important interchange and transport hub and, with its three mainline train stations, offers excellent connections to all Swiss cities and the most important European metropolises. The Swiss Railway station (SBB), the French Railway station (SNCF) and the Badische Bahnhof, operated by German Railway (DB), are all conveniently located in the heart of the city.
All of Basel's stations are frequented several times each day by trains arriving either from within Switzerland or abroad.
Trains from France arrive at the French Railway station (SNCF), which is located directly beside the Swiss Railway station (SBB).
Trains from Germany arrive either at the Swiss Railway station (SBB) or at the Badische Bahnhof, which is operated by German Railway (DB) and is located close to the trade fair centre.
