Hi all,

I plan to travel from Basel SBB station to Interlaken Ost via GP line, but notice the following from the SBB apps :-

7:17 Basel SBB

8:30 Luzern Pl. 8

- 35 minis walk -

90:5 Luzern Pl.12

10:55 Interlaken Ost

Is the "35 mins walk" between the platform in Luzern a must, or is there any other alternative way ? I can;t find any from the apps.

Appreciate if you could give me some clue to avoid this 35 mins walk. Thanks.

Hi Tazbb,

It doesn't mean that it is a 35 minute walk - but rather that you have 35 minutes between trains to walk there. So lots of time to travel between those platforms. :)

Oh I see ! No wonder ! as it sounds ridiculous for walking 35 mins between platforms within the same station.

Thanks so much for your clarification, Lucas :))
