QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Now as ever, the safety of our visitors and employees remains our first priority. The Fondation Beyeler has therefore drawn up a comprehensive safety plan that takes into account the Swiss Federal Council’s and Canton's Covid-19 Ordinances. In order to make your visit to the museum as enjoyable as possible in these challenging times, we have introduced several measures to optimise visitor flow.
It is obligatory that all visitors wear a mask when visiting the museum. Visitors who are exempt from wearing a mask for medical reasons are asked to provide written proof.
Due to the official regulations regarding the COVID-19 protective measures, international passenger transport is currently restricted. Please refer to the website of the Federal Office of Health and the authorities of the country to which you are returning for current information on the border situation.
To avoid waiting times, we recommend that all visitors to the Fondation Beyeler purchase an e-ticket in advance.
Please note: For the "Rodin/Arp" special exhibition we have introduced new ticketing arrangements, with timed tickets thar are valid for a stated date and time of admission. A one-hour time slot is provided for entry to the museum, so if you buy a timed ticket for 10 a.m., you should arrive by 11 a.m. at the latest. There is no limit on the length of your stay.
Please make sure, before booking an online timed ticket, that the stated date and time are suitable for you. Refunds are not available for online bookings.
Tickets will remain available for purchase at the museum's cash desk.
Entry coupons are always valid with the exception of exhibitions with a higher admission fee.
The parking lot "Zentrum" is located next to the Fondation Beyeler and is open 24 hours a day. Handicapped parking is available immediately by the entrance. Along the side of the museum on Baselstrasse there are an additional three parking spots for coaches. If these are occupied, guests can be dropped off in front of the museum before the coach is parked on "Schiessplatz" in Riehen.
There are two parking lots for bicycles. Coming from Basel, the parking lot is in the Bachtelenweg. Coming from Lörrach, it is in the Baselstrasse at the far end of the museum.
Groups of over 20 persons must register and give details of the size of the group, date and arrival time. We will be happy to check if we can accommodate your visit and follow up with a confirmation by email.
Tickets are available 14 days in advance online or at the box office on the day of the tour. You can purchase tickets on the day of the tour only at the museum. There is a limited number of places for each tour. We recommend that you arrive early to get a spot.
We offer private tours from Monday to Saturday. You can register by giving details about the size of the group, date and arrival time, and complete contact details. You must make your booking four weeks in advance of your intended visit.
during your visit
The founder couple Ernst and Hildy Beyeler had a clear vision: the Fondation Beyeler should be an open, active museum that inspires an appreciation for art in a wide audience. A museum that promotes both cultural education and interpersonal encounters. Today, the Fondation Beyeler is the most popular art museum in Switzerland and is considered one of the finest worldwide.
Beyeler Restaurant im Park
The menu allows guests to choose between an a la carte menu and an constantly-changing lunch menu. A large selection of cakes is available to accompany coffee, which, in future, will be prepared in barista quality. The wine list is based on the surrounding area, but also offers a good selection of wines from the regions from the rest of Europe.
Experienced art connoisseurs as well as gift seekers will find what they are looking for here. Our own products and art editions as well as selected design articles are also available in our online shop.
