Basel to Munich

Jump to last reply

We (4 adults) will be finishing a river cruise in Basel this June and will then travel independently to Munich where we will continue our vacation. I have looked at the train vs plane vs rental car options and was surprised to see that a one-day rental car was actually cheapest. The non-stop flight was ridiculous ($900) and one-stops took longer than the train. That being said, we still might prefer the train as we won't need the car once in Munich and obtaining and returning a large car with automatic transmission can only be done at each city's airport, which I know will add to the inconvenience.
Questions:
1. How does one get from the dock to the train station? What kind of cab fare are we talking about if that is the best option?
2. How does one get from the dock to the airport? What kind of cab fare are we talking about if that is the best option?
3. Cost aside, would you recommend driving or taking the train?
Thanks,
Frank
