What does the component do?

A link is an interactive text element that navigates users to another page or resource.

When should the component be used?

  • To lead users to further content, pages or external resources.
  • To provide links to related information or documents.
  • To provide navigation within the website or application.


  • Use descriptive and meaningful link texts to help users understand the target content.
  • Links should open in a new tab if they lead to external resources.

The sbb-block-link component provides the same functionality as a native <a> enhanced with the SBB Design.


The text is provided via an unnamed slot; the component can optionally display a sbb-icon using
the iconName property or via custom content using the icon slot.
By default, the icon is placed at the component's end, but this can be changed using the iconPlacement property.

<sbb-block-link href="https://www.sbb.ch" icon-name="chevron-small-right-small">



The component can be displayed in disabled state using the self-named property.

<sbb-block-link href="https://www.sbb.ch" disabled>Refunds</sbb-block-link>

Link properties

The component is internally rendered as a link,
accepting its associated properties (href, target, rel and download).
