Getting There in Basel

Edit This
by air:

Basel shares its airport "EuroAirport" with Mulhouse (France) and Freiburg (Germany). It is a public law company under international law domiciled in France and the only completely bi-national airport in the world. Situated entirely on French territory, the airport has a Swiss customs sector connected to Basel via a customs road. For detailed flight information, have a look at their webpage.

by train:

Basel has two train stations straddling three countries. Basel SBB is the main one on the left bank of the Rhine, most in Switzerland, although the section known as "Bâle SNCF" is in French territory (passport control). Trams No. 8 and 11 connect to the city centre (Barfüsserplatz and Markplatz).

"Basel Badischer Bahnhof" is on the right bank and is owned by DB (German railways). It is a German enclave within Basel. Take tram No. 6 to the city centre. Fast trains from Germany (ICE) call at both stations, but most local trains from Germany terminate at Badischer Bahnhof.
