This is something for the google.com. You will find info at the Viking cruise site I guess.

We are taking a Rhine River cruise which ends in Basel. Can anyone tell us the best/easiest way to get from Basel docks to the train station to get a train to Zurich please? We haven't done much travelling and only speak English. Many thanks.

Hi, don't worry about speaking only English. Most taxi drivers will speak English and all Swiss Rail staff that serve the pubic speak English (often much better than native speakers!)

The easiest way to get from the dock to the station is a taxi. The closest tram stop is some distance (probably too far to walk with luggage) from the docks. If you happen to get a taxi driver who doesn't understand train station, have "SBB" on a piece of paper to show him. There are a couple of other stations but you want Basel SBB to get the train to Zurich.

Hope this helps.

I have booked the Rhine Getaway cruise in October and will be flying into the Basel Europort. How is the best way to get to the ship dock?

There's bus transport from the airport to the main train station in Basel where it is easy to take a taxi to the dock. It's easy to find the bus at the airport and when the bus drops you at the station, you'll see the taxi stand area as well. They have trolleys at the airport and at the station if you need them to move your luggage.

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much. Another question for you... If I am staying overnight in Basel, on the German side do I go out the French or Swiss exit from the airport or does it really matter? I will be staying on the other side of the river from the airport and near the dock. Thanks for your help.
