Our route starts at the main station in Freiburg im Breisgau and goes up to Basel Badischer Bahnhof. As part of the Rhine valley route this railway route is one of the most important North-south links in the European railway network. Today it’s one of the most frequented railway routes in Germany. This route is also very important for international train connections to Switzerland and France. It is the main gate to the newly opened Gotthard Base Tunnel in 2016.
