Basel SBB is the central railway station in the city of Basel in Switzerland. Trains run by the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) to destinations within Switzerland use this station, as well as trains to Germany and Cisalpino services across the Alps to Milan in Italy.

The station building also contains Bâle SNCF, which is located through a border crossing and is used by terminating trains to and from France. Directly outside the railway station is the Centralbahnplatz, which is a major hub of the Basel tram network. Additionally, a direct bus service goes to the airport from just outside the station. The other major railway station in Basel is Basel Badischer Bahnhof.

The 1907 station building is a heritage site of national significance. [Swiss inventory of cultural property of national and regional significance (1995), p. 79.]
