Basel airport

The "EuroAirport" is a relatively small airport located just across the Swiss border in France. It's the shared airport of the cities of Basel (Switzerland), Mulhouse (France) and Freiburg (Germany). Most flights originate from in and around Europe. Most intercontinental flights arrive at Zurich airport.

The entire airport, including the arrival hall and departure hall, is split into Swiss and French sections.

Transportation from the airport to Basel

There is no train station at the airport. There is a rail service desk in the Swiss section of the arrival hall. Bus line 50 takes you to the Basel main rail station (Basel SBB) in 22 minutes. From there you can reach the town center on foot or by tram, or take a train to any other town. You can take a taxi from the airport to Basel as well.
