Basel / Bâle to Kleine Scheidegg by train

Accessing the fabulous Bernese-Oberland by train is easily done from Basel, thanks to direct trains to the gateway station of Interlaken Ost.

Kleine Scheidegg is where connections are available into the trains which travel up to Europe's highest station at Jungfraujoch.

It's also where connections can be made between the trains operated by WAB, which connect Grindelwald with Lauterbrunnen.
So if you want to take the gorgeous round trip from Basel, with or without the particularly expensive ascent to Jungfraujoch, is is Kleine Scheidegg that you'll be heading to.
