Travel help ... Please

Hello Forum
Could anybody out there help me please ??? I am flying into Basel on Monday with my final destination being Rupperswil. I have been told to catch a train to Aarau city. I have also booked a hotel in Lenzburg. Can anyone tell me if this is a good plan ?
No for the questions ....
Is this a good plan ?
How long and how much will the train cost from Basel to Aarau ?
Can I walk from Aarau to Lenzburg, if not how would you suggest I get there and again how much will it cost ?
Can I walk from Lenzburg to Rupperswil ?
I am staying near the old town in Lenzburg.
Any help would be brilliant :-)

Thanks so much
Colin

Re: Travel help ... Please

I can't really answer your other questions, but I'd double check with the person that suggested you get the train to Aarau if you're staying in Lenzburg. Lenzburg has its own station.

If you look on the SBB site, you can see the times and cost of the trains.

Re: Travel help ... Please

As it looks as if you haven't a great deal of idea about the region (not a criticism, Rupperswil is not exactly world famous!) have a quick look at these two maps to give you an idea of the relationship between the places and the distances involved.

http://www.sbb.ch/en/station-service...lans/maps.html
> click on ‘Network Map Switzerland’ in the middle towards the bottom of the page. This map hasn't heard of Rupperswil either!

http://www.sbb.ch/en/travelcards-and...e-network.html
Click on the zone plan at the bottom of the page to enlarge it. This shows the region which includes Lenzburg, Rupperswil and Aarau

Times and prices of tickets etc. are all in the link which Mirfield gave. It takes a while to find ones way through it all but it's worth your while digging around it. If you have specific questions, come back and be as explicit as possible. It'll help you to get the right answers if you ask the right questions.
Hope you get it all sorted.

Mappy is also good for planning journeys. Even if you're not driving you can look at the from/to maps & get an idea of distances.

Will you go from Basel straight to the hotel in Lenzburg, or to Rupperswil? There's a direct train from Basel to Lenzburg once an hour, plus other options with changes.

To get from Basel to Rupperswil, you change in either Olten, Lenzburg or Brugg depending on what time you leave Basel (there are three or four connections per hour).

Lenzburg to Rupperswil is three minutes on the train.

As others have said, use the SBB website for timetables and fares.

Thankyou all so much for your help it really is much appreciated.
So as I mentioned Rupperswil is my final destination but Im only going for a day so I chosen a hotel in Lenzburg. Is this a picturesque town, if not I can change my hotel, any other recommendations of a beautiful town in the area where the rail connection to Rupperswil is easy 😊
