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.

St. Peter's Island

St. Petersinsel (St. Peter's Isle) was a modest estate with leased vineyard allotments when it gained widespread importance in Europe in the 18th century through J-J Rousseau's descriptions of the island. It then became a stopover on educational journeys through Switzerland before turning into a favourite destination for daytrips, offering the visitor an opportunity to appreciate nature and enjoy a sense of peacefulness.

“... nowhere have I felt so truly happy as on St. Peter's Island in the middle of Lake Biel,” wrote Jean-Jacques Rousseau shortly before his death, wistfully recalling his all too short stay on the island in the autumn of 1765.
