COVID-19 SAFETY CONCEPT

The Fondation Beyeler has developed a comprehensive Covid-19 health and safety concept for visitors and employees in the museum, art shop and restaurant. We comply with the requirements of the federal government and the canton of Basel-Stadt. Those measures are being updated constantly in accordance with the official guidance requirements.

 

From 13 September 2021, museum visitors will be required to show a Covid-19 certificate (from the age of 16), i.e. you will need a valid Swiss or EU/EFTA Covid-19 certificate (vaccinated, recovered, tested) and an official proof of identity.

To present a Covid-19 certificate you can either show:

  • A proof of having completed a vaccination programme.
  • A COVID-19 recovery certificate that is less than 180 days old.
  • A negative rapid antigen test taken within the last 48 hours.
  • A negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours.
