Schaulager

The Schaulager - built by the world famous architects Herzog & de Meuron - is a new venue for art and neither a museum nor a traditional warehouse. It is home to the works from the collection of the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation that are not exhibited in museums.

The Schaulager (“exhibition space”) is a different kind of art space being neither a museum nor a traditional warehouse. It houses the works of the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation that are not on display.

Fondation Beyeler

This is a private collection of outstanding works of contemporary classical art. Due to the museum's modern architecture, which fits well into the environment, and the skillful presentation of the art works, it is considered one of the world's most beautiful collections.

Year after year, people flock to Riehen from near and far to immerse in the art world of Hildy and Ernst Beyeler. They come to view the collection of works from classical modernism or one of the sensational exhibitions. However, the building designed by Renzo Piano and its park is worth the journey too.
