Specially designed tours
It is important to us that visitors with impaired sight or hearing be able to experience the artworks at the Fondation Beyeler. For this reason, we offer specially designed guided tours. We also offer workshops for groups upon request.
During the guided tour for people with impaired hearing, an interpreter translates the information about the exhibition, artists, and artworks into sign language. For an individual tour of the museum, there are information leaflets in the rooms (in German, French and English). A catalogue is available for each exhibition.
Please contact our tour coordinator for additional information, or if you are interested in a workshop especially conceived for persons with impaired hearing: email@example.com
The blind or visually impaired
Guided tours for the blind and visitors with impaired sight include detailed descriptions of the paintings that allow guests to access the works more deeply. When taking an individual tour, please be aware that labels in the rooms are usually quite small. However, each exhibition is described at the beginning in a short text printed in large type. You may bring your seeing-eye dog in the museum. Please note that it is not permitted to touch the artworks.

Access for people with impaired sight
The museum can be reached easily from the tram stop “Fondation Beyeler.” If you are coming from Basel, turn left when you get off the tram. You will come to a pedestrian crossing after 12 meters. Cross the street, turn right and walk 30 meters to the main entrance to the museum park. Walk in and stay to the right. This 50-meter path leads up a ramp to the museum. The ticket counter is to the right of the entrance.
