Fondation Beyeler, Riehen

4.3
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.

  • A marvelous art Museum with a garden, with sculptures by Calder next door, and a restaurant with outdoor seating.  more »
  • A private museum shows the huge art reflected unfortunately also with very high entry prices! The exhibition it very good. Just an exhibition of Georg Baselitz is up-to-date to admire, I very enjoyed! What I found particularly good that it is a disability-friendly Museum!

  • The building alone is already worth a visit also the location on the outskirts of the city in a very beautiful park. The absolute highlight of the collection, of course, an absolute must for all those interested in art with an emphasis on Paul Klee.

  • Dropped in to see the Paul Klee exhibition, and also the famous architecture by Renzo Piano. The exhibition was quite a comprehensive retrospective on Paul Klee; had fun reading more about selected artworks in their printed guide. There were some comparative write-ups about artworks which is refreshing. Unfortunately, half the museum was closed to prepare for the next exhibition - perhaps the museum can consider charging half the usual price for admission since we only get half the experience?
  • One of the best private art collections in the world. Featuring great special exhibitions. It is also a beautiful building. Don't miss if you like fine art.
  • I attended the Baserlitz exhibition. The person at the ticket booth made sure to ask me about every possible reduced rate I might be eligible for. The space is very modern and the exhibit was extremely well curated. It's not cheap though and it's somewhat out of the way.
  • Very well curated art exhibition. The collection is well documented (remember to grab a brochure) and the staff is friendly. Perfect for some quiet time :)
  • Foundation Beyeler is one of worldwide Most famous with its womderful collection. Super Ausstellung GEORG BASELITZ......I always enjoy a forest walk alone the River Wiesse and SwissGerman Border.... Must visit museum when you are in Basel...
