from Basel to PARIS

by sursev

hello everyone
I will be landing in euroairport on 28 December at 14:10 and I need to go to Paris. However I am a bit confused about the railstations in basel. To which railstation should I go from the airport in order to catch a train to Paris at the same day? how should I go to that trainstation and How long will it take me to get there? thanks in advance:)

Re: from Basel to PARIS

You can either go to Basel main station, or you can go to the Mulhouse rail station. You can take trains from both. Going to Mulhouse means you're not entering Switzerland.
The main station in Basel is called "Basel SBB" and there are trains to Paris from there. Mulhouse has a few more trains. Timetables and tickets are at www.sncf.fr.

Travel Tips for Basel

Museums Pass

by german_eagle

For all those who are interested in culture, museums, art collections the regional museums pass (Oberrheinischer Museumspass) is a great deal.

The Museums Pass covers more than 150 museums in the region, including Germany, France and Switzerland and such famous museums like the Art Museum in Basel and the Unterlinden museum in Colmar.

I purchased the short-time version, valid four days within one month. It costs 25 Euro.

by Packerman

Amazingly enough the country that hosts 4 different languages (3 which are official), most people I've encountered in Basel only speak German. However, I have not been to any musuems or places where you need to buy a ticket, maybe those places are different.

St. Alban Vorstadt

by german_eagle

Very enjoyable and a nice break from the bustling city is a walk through the southern "suburb" St. Alban Vorstadt. It is very picturesque, large parts remained their small town ambience.

The street of the same name starts right at the Wettstein bridge (or the Kunstmuseum). Walk this street and have a look at the many beautiful houses, many of them in Baroque or classical style. A staircase leads down to St. Alban church, the St. Alban city gate marks the end of the street.

See my next tips as well.

by sarahkathryn

The Langes Erlen Park. Get the number 8 tram, direction Kleinhuningen, to the end of the line. Turn right as you get off the tram and walk along the little river (the Wiessen) for about 10 minutes. You will find yourself in a park that runs a long this little river all the way up the German boarder. If you keep going for long enough you will find yourself in Lorrach. This place is perfect for blades and skates, sunbathing in the summer, wandering through the trees on an autumn day, and generally getting peace and quiet. Just by the entrance is a small zoo, with a variety of animals, mainly those related to deers in some way.

Border Crossings

by lonestar_philomath

When I lived and worked in Switzerland, I was driving a company car with Swiss licence plates. I don't know if it was the comapny placard on the doors or the Swiss plate that allowed me to pass back and forth between Switz and France and Germany. It also helps to know the back streets. I know of a border crossing back in 1990 that was never checked, no guards, etc. Let me know where you will be staying and maybe I can tell you about that passing. Some mountain passes between countries are not manned either.

I also drove my personal vehicle with Texas license plates over in Europe. The only time I was stopped was at a French border crossing in southern France. My French background became important.
