Arrival & Parking
At the highest point of the navigable Rhine and just 20 km from Basel lies the town of Rheinfelden, which can be reached by train and boat, as well as via the A3 motorway. There are several car parks on site. A dense bus network makes it easy to reach the outlying districts and the German sister city. The old town is car-free and can be reached on foot from the railway station.
How to get there.
By public transport
Rheinfelden can be reached by Interregio 36 from Zurich main station in just under an hour, and in the opposite direction from Basel in 12 minutes. S-Bahn trains run from Rheinfelden to Laufenburg.
From Basel the boat comes to Rheinfelden several times a week in summer. The big lock trip is a great experience for those for whom the journey is the destination. The boat trip takes 2 to 3 hours, depending on the direction.
