Although it is a lot of space, it is relatively easy to use. It is very convenient to get to the train station from the station exit. This is a two-part train station: 1. Main SBB (Switzerland) station 2. SNCF station - now mainly transported by TER train to France, including trains to Strasbourg.
The main Station
Trains departure from the station SBB (Switzerland) include: 1. All trains to other cities in Switzerland 2. ICE and EC trains to Germany 3. EC trains to Italy 4. Night trains 5. Go to Paris The Lyria train at this SBB station,
Platform/track/gleis 1-4 is the street hall. The platform/track/ gleis 5-17 can be accessed via a large flyover with shops and cafes. Although the SBB station is not a terminal, there is no pressure on the transfer. It's not good. SBB also has an information desk on the flyover - so if you use this bridge to change trains and want to double check the details of your round trip, you don't have to go to the main lobby.
SNCF Station: G1:30-35:
On the right side of the main hall, when you enter the station from the city side (the location of the tram stop) - is a passage that can accommodate quality food stores and special take-out counters. (If you want to travel long distances, buy some food from here, it will be better than any food you find on the train). This passage is also the connection to the SNCF part of the station - from where the TER and the local trains on the route to Mulhouse and Strasbourg leave. Please note that the Lyria trains to Dijon and Paris do not leave here, they depart from the main SBB station.
The SNCF platform / gleis / track 30-35 are at the street level - and this part of the station has a separate role. You have to go through a sliding door and enter the train under the sign "France" - then you will pass through the pretty SNCF departure hall.
When taking the train from this SNCF part of the train station, you must remember to print your ticket on the machine at the platform/fire entrance. The current plan for construction work at the SBB station is about to be extended to the SNCF station - so it is hoped that its special features will be preserved.
Basel Bad bf Station
Basel is a city with two main stations, so it is very easy to take the train to the city. In addition to Basel SBB, the Basel Bad Bf station also provides services. If you take the train between Basel city centre and the German destination, it is more convenient to use the Basel Bad Bf station than to take the train to Basel SBB.
