Basel Badischer Bahnhof ( BBB ) is a railway station situated in the city of Basel. Whilst the station is located
on Swiss soil, the platforms and part of the entrance hall are extraterritorial, belonging to Germany, and the
station is operated by the German railway company, Deutsche Bahn. A border crossing is in the passenger
tunnel between the tracks and the station hall. The shops in the station hall, however, are located in
Switzerland, and the Swiss franc is used as the official currency there. The custom's controls are located in
a tunnel between the platforms and the station hall. Passport controls were abolished when Switzerland
joined the Schengen Treaty.

Basel SBB is the central railway station in the city of Basel. Trains run by the Swiss's Federal Railways (SBB) to
destinations within Switzerland use this station,as well as Deutsche Bahn's ICE trains to Germany as well as
Zurich and Interlaken and the Cisalpino service across the Alps to Milan in Italy.
