Trip Basel Airport-Strasbourg and return

Trip Basel Airport-Strasbourg and return

Hi,

we'ii arrive to Basel Airport on 29/11 afternoon. What is the best and quickest way to get Strasbourg and return after 3 days? Train? Bus?

Is there a train station in the airport itself? What is it`s name?

Or do we need to take any shuttle to get the station?

Is it necessary to purchase the tickets in advance (may be it's cheaper) or to buy at the station?

Although you call it Basel airport it is actually in France and it has separate exits to France and Switzerland, obviously you use the exit to France. There is a shuttle bus service (€ 2,50 IIRC) to Saint-Louis station which is served by Strasbourg-Bâle/Basel TER (local) trains and, most of the time, there is at least one through train an hour to Strasbourg via Mulhouse and Colmar. You can buy your tickets at Saint-Louis station and please note that, as well as buying them. you have to "composte" (validate) them, they are not valid until that is done (and tickets for the return journey will have to be validated at Strasbourg station just before you travel too).

Hi Becasse,

Great. I`ve seen that any trains to Strasbourg are from Bahnhof Basel SBB station.

Are there the same trains?

They will be the same trains provided that the train number starts TER------. I don't recommend crossing into Switzerland which you would need to do to use Basel Bhf, not least because the currency is different. If you leave the airport by the "FRANCE" exit and take the shuttle bus to Saint-Louis station you never leave France.
