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 major European cities. 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.

Basel’s railway stations enjoy frequent domestic and international services. 

Trains from France arrive at the French railway station, which is right next to the Swiss (SBB) station.

Guests travelling from Germany can choose whether to get off at Basel SBB or at the German station (Badischer Bahnhof) near the exhibition centre.
