It is very easy, and changing platforms will take you 5 minutes Maximum. If you are going to Stratsbourg, you will need the French side platforms (its all signposted) and you will walk through the old border controls (but there is no border control persons due to the Schengen agreement).

If in doubt, there are plenty of staff on hand to help you.

From the arrival plattform take the rolling stairs up to the passarelle, then down to the main hall. On the left side of the main hall you will see a signnpost "FRANCE". Keep straight on, cross the (mostly unmanned) border and go the the french railway plattforms. (by customs law you are already in France by then, although geographically you are still in Basel)

All this will take a maximum of 10 minutes. (400 yards walk)

How do I go to Interlaken from Basel SBB? Is it possible to take tickets on the spot rather than booking them in advance. I am traveling from India to Paris and then to INterlaken, via Basel is the only option I m getting.

Thank u
