Re: Best Route from Basel to Calais

My favourite route is Strasbourg, Luxembourg (For fuel), Lille, Dunkirk, then the DFDS (Norfolk Line) ferry to Dover
which takes 2 hours. Pay the extra €10 for the first class lounge for free TV newspapers coffee, or enjoy a nice meal.


Costs € 141.95 with a petrol vehicle ( Tolls € 12.90 & Petrol € 99.95 )

Distance from Basel center to the port!
747 km with 721 km on autobahns. Time 07h46 with 07h17 on motorways

The exact address for the fuel stop is
Shell station
2 Route de Longwy
L-8080 Bertrange (Bartreng)
There is a supermarket nearby.

A cheap (About € 67,-- for two) emergency hotel in Luxemburg,

Hotel IBIS Luxembourg Sud (Near the Livange Autobahn exit)
Rue de Turi
3378 Livange, Luxemburg‎
Tel: 0035 226 52 01

Re: Best Route from Basel to Calais


has anyone tried the way via Langres Troyes (A5) and then north towards Reims. Seems shorter and 100% motorway.
