house rules


We recommend the use of public transportation to reach the museum. Travel time from Basel, Badischer Bahnhof is only a few minutes; from Basel SBB station, about 25 minutes. The tram stop is very close to the museum. Guests coming from within Switzerland can benefit from the SBB RailAway special offer. Those traveling by car will find parking spaces very close to the Fondation Beyeler in the garage “Zentrum”. If you wish to combine your visit to the museum with a bicycle tour, there is a direct bike path from Badischer Bahnhof. We also recommend the path that takes you through Lange Erlen.

The Museum

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

Restaurant in the Park inside view with tables and chairs.

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.
