Getting Around in Basel & Switzerland

Basel is very well connected and developed in terms of transportation:
As a European motorway and railway hub Basel is hosting three railway stations (a Swiss one/SBB, a French one/SNCF and a German one/DB); it is further more a city of navigation thanks to its location at the river Rhine and could be, last but not least, ideally reached by air via the Euroairport.

Like everywhere in Switzerland, Basel's public transportation system has an excellent infrastructure, is very punctual and runs frequently. Transportation across the borders is also good and continues to undergo expansion. Due to its compactness, the many one-way streets and environmental policies that yield more space to public transportation and bicycles, Basel is not easy territory for car drivers. Choose walking, cycling or public transporation whenever possible.
