Basel to Heidelberg

Can we catch a train from Heidelberg to Basel & then on to Lucerne? We have 3 days in Heidelberg then on to Basel for 2 days and then to Lucerne for 4 days and then to Lake Como for 4 days. Is it possible to do this by train? The train websites are driving me batty LOL.

Yes, there are good train connections for the whole route. Heidelberg - Basel takes about 2.5 hours with one change in Mannheim. Try the www.rail.ch website, it's really easy to handle!

The website oller gave you is for Swiss Rail and you can get schedules for all over Europe on it even if the trip doesn't go into or through Switzerland. It's the easiest website for getting schedules and you can print the schedules very easily - it takes a little figuring out at first for printing but it's just a case of learning how to print the whole schedule or just for the train you want. Two seconds.

If you need dates beyond the present schedule, just use the same day of the week for last year as the schedule doesn't change much if any from year to year for the same season. For example, if you need a train on a Sunday next June, just put in a date that was a Sunday this past June.

Hope this helps.
