What to Do in Basel During the Day



The Beyeler Foundation is an extensive art collection created over five decades by the late couple, Hildy and Ernst Beyeler.

Since 1997 the Beyeler’s extraordinary collection has been housed at designer Renzo Piano’s unique museum in Riehen, near Basel. The building’s elegant interior beautifully complements the featured artwork, creating a serene atmosphere in which to enjoy one of the greatest art collections in the world. Visitors can see some two hundred pieces of 20th century art including paintings from Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne and Vincent van Gogh to Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Francis Bacon. With a third of the museum set aside for temporary exhibitions, there is always something new to see at this inspiring, world-class gallery. This summer the Beyeler Foundation is proud to present the works of renowned sculptors Constantin Brancusi and Richard Serra.
