Basel to Blotzheim Casino

I have noticed some fun events coming up at the Blotzheim Casino in France. It looks not so far from Basel but there doesn't apear to be a train going there. Does anyone know the best way to get to Blotzheim without a car?

Re: Basel to Blotzheim Casino

It appeaers your sarcasm has no place here since the map does not answer my original question. As stated above i can see it is close but i would like to know the best way to get there without a car.

Replies like this always make me giggle. I wonder if anyone would be so full of attitude in person. Clearly my day is going better than yours though!

Re: Basel to Blotzheim Casino

Posters like you always make me giggle.

From the link, again, you can take something called the NFB and then either walk, take a taxi or put in more a more specific address for B.

I will accept your apology.

Re: Basel to Blotzheim Casino

The bus only goes to Basel, Friedrich-Miescher-Str. Which is the Basel Grand Casino. Then it is another ~9km to Blotzheim so walking is not an option in the tme frame. I simply do not see why an attitude is needed when sending a reply. People feels so confident when sat behind a computer.

JustRose, I am sorry if you feel there´s anything but light-hearted joke from my side... I dont know how to get there if not by car or bike or walking.

Re: Basel to Blotzheim Casino

The distribus buses 1 & 8 both go past the casino (from Saint-Louis and Basel respectively), but they only run until 7pm - hardly conducive to a night on the tables or dancefloor.

It looks like Adrian is right - you're either going to have to walk/cycle it, or make sure you win big and get a taxi Perhaps if you get the 50 bus to the airport and get a taxi from there it might not be so bad.

1. Because 'NFB' doesn't help you find out which number bus to catch (it's a placeholder Google uses when it doesn't have full information)
2. Because you didn't bother checking that the buses run at any useful time
3. Because Google doesn't even have full coverage of local transport, particularly in France, so the lack of an answer on their route-planner doesn't mean there aren't options.

No. The google link isn't mentioning "Bus 50".

No, it isn't. But it does mention Friedrich-Miescher-Str. I know bus 50 goes there, as does probably another French bus (such as distribus buses that several ppl mentioned) but according to the map thats as far as a bus would take you. I couldn't find any further info via google/web search so i posted here, thanks for the help!

Looks like i'll be giving tomorrow a miss since its such a hassle to get there!

Re: Basel to Blotzheim Casino

It's really not far to cycle. Else bus 50 to the airport and taxi a short distance to/from the casino.

I was going to suggest the same. Maybe some folk don't know that you can take the bus to the Swiss side of the airport then walk through to the French side where there is a taxi rank and from where Blotzheim is 5km away.
