Travel from Zurich to Basel: Journey Details

If you want to travel from Zurich to Basel, flying is out of the question. These two Swiss cities are a short distance apart, and there are no scheduled flights. Instead, you can take an express train straight to the heart of Basel or take an affordable bus via Basel EuroAirport. Either way, you will be at your destination in less than 2 hours, making Basel a great day trip destination if you are staying in Zurich.

Return trips from Basel to Zurich are also available.
