Photographer's Note

Railways reached Basel as early as 1844 when Chemin de fer Strasbourg Bâle (Strasbourg Basel Railway) was opened. This was one of the first, if not the very first, international railway lines. Only three years later the first railway built by a Swiss company was opened between Zürich and Baden.

On the current location of Basel SBB, station was opened in 1854 and completely rebuilt between 1900-1907. Nowadays Basel SBB is the Europe's busiest international border station. About 1000 trains depart from the station daily.
