Travel to Basel by train

Travel to Basel by train

Has anybody traveled to Basel from the Altstetten train station in Zurich? I found much cheaper train tickets from that station comparing to Zurich HB, but I am not sure whether it is worthwhile.

Use www.sbb.ch/en timetable application for possible itineraries and for ticket prices.

There are direct trains to Basel stopping also at Zürich Altstetten, will take less time than detour to Zürich HB for other direct trains to Basel with less stops.

Check also for so called supersaver tickets (bound to a specific train, day and time) at that timetable application. More at https:/…supersaver-ticket.html
