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.

    Großer Bahnhof fast schon mitten im Nirgendwo. Eigentliche Innenstadt nur schwer zu Fuß erreichen, eher auf den ÖPNV ausweichen.

    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

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

    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.

    역사내에 ATM기가 있으니 체크카드를 가져오신 분운 거기서 스위스프랑을 찾으실 수 있습니다. 모바일샵도 있는데, prepaid sim을 구입하실수 있어요. 인터넷 가능한 카드가 15CHF인데, VISA카드로 결제할 때 한화로 선택하니 14,000원 정도네요. 굳.
