train info

what trains should I take from Basel to Copenhagen ? I have been told the night train but do not know which line is the best way to get there.

1. Re: train info

There is only one direct train.

This is the City Night Line train Aurora which leaves Basel SBB station at 1826 and arrives in Copenhagen at 1007 next day.

As your journey starts in Switzerland, it's probably best to buy tickets at the Swiss railways website www.sbb.ch but it can also be booked at the German site www.bahn.de and probably elsewhere.

The journey can be done in daytime but there are no direct trains.

CityNightLine is owned by DB (Deutsche Bahn - German Rail). You could check if there are price differences from Basel SBB or Basel Bad Bf to Copenhagen. The night train calls at both train stations in Basel.

DB timetable


Start: Basel SBB

Start: Basel Bad Bf

Destination: Koebenhavn H

Note that this train does run between 19. July and 9. August 2014 only to Flensburg (track works on the Danish site).
