Fondation Beyeler, Riehen
(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Fondation Beyeler operates the museum that owns and exhibits the art collection of the late Ernst and Hildy Beyler. The husband-and-wife couple amassed a large collection of modern classics during their lifetimes. A highlight of the museum is the collection of 23 pieces by Pablo Picasso; the museum also features works by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Andy Warhol. The Beyelers created the foundation and museum to house their substantial art collection and provide public access to the pieces. The museum's glazed building sits nestled in Berowerpark, where special exhibits periodically take place. Fondation Beyeler is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Riehen Edition.

  • Price too high in the period following a stall... still you shop and very few rooms available...!

  • Having family in Basel, I visit the the city several times a year. I rarely skip the Beyler. The satisfaction with the visit varies with the interest one has in the given exhibit. However Renzo Piano'...  more »
  • Went to see a magnificent exhibition there on Franz Marc and Kandinsky. Yes, it is expensive - 25 euros to get in - but the quality is extraordinary

  • Very functional and still stylish place! You are completely happy when the exhibition you visit answer your expectations. If not - you can always go around to see some nice things in the park
  • A must-see museum. The building itself is spectacular and your are sure to be impressed by any exposition they have. Whenever I'm in Basel I go without even checking the current exposition. I'm sure to be thrilled.
  • Easy to get to, fantastic grounds and building. The Calder exposition was excellent. It is however, expensive. But worth it.
  • Lovely grounds, impressive collection and terrific exhibits...but the harsh lighting does them no favors. A few of the staff are rather snooty.
  • Very nice exhibition, with some very famous artists. The building, designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano, is beautiful.
