Basel SBB train station (Bahnhof Basel SBB) is the main train station in Basel and it handles trains to destinations in Switzerland, France and Italy.

The SBB train station is the more centrally-located of Basel’s railway stations and is the main hub for Swiss SBB-CFF-FFS trains to destinations within Switzerland, France and Italy. Some DB trains to Germany stop here, although most trains to Germany depart from Basel Badischer Bahnhof north of the Rhine. Three lines of the Basel Regional S-Bahn also stop at this station including some regional services to France.

The station also serves as a terminus for French SNCF TGV trains to Paris-Lyon and Marseille-St-Charles as well as regional SNCF TER Alsace trains to Mulhouse and Strasbourg. Trains to France depart from an area of the station that is accessible via a border crossing and the station is often indicated as Bâle SNCF on French railway timetables.

    Funny enough, there are free toilets if you go to the doors that say "France" above them.

    Barren trainstation with an axis of shoppes above train level. Walking axis bridge can be very congested when more than one train is unloading passengers

    It has a decent selection of shops and it has a simple layout.

    Impressive, very big, very passenger friendly. Many places to eat available. Could be very crowded.

    Wie alle Basler hasse ich die Passerelle (..) Das Gebäude und der Haupteingang mit seinen Malereien sind aber wunderschön.

    Der schönste Teil des Bahnhofs: der Haupteingang!

    Bus #50 right outside takes you to Basel Euroairport - a very easy connection!

    Πριν μεταβείτε στα Gleis κάντε μια βόλτα στα καταστήματα του 1ου ορόφου.

    It's a good, secure place for public parking but quite expensive. There is cheaper parking available at Aeschenplatz which is literally walking distance from Basel Bahnhof.

    Schöne Architektur. Passerelle ist jedoch eine Fehlplanung
