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.

An uplifting experience right from the start. The aesthetically pleasing construction by the Italian architect Renzo Piano surrounded by an idyllic park with trees and sculptures on the green carpet of grass exude a contagious, peaceful mood. And whoever can’t get enough of it is welcome to take a seat in the restaurant of the Villa Berower.

But even inside the Fondation Beyeler building you meet with a relaxed atmosphere. The 250 masterpieces of the Hildy and Ernst Beyeler collection enjoy plenty of space in bright rooms - with part of the ground floor reserved for high-profile temporary exhibitions - with artists such as Marlene Dumas, Gerhard Richter or Ferdinand Hodler. Such presentations are always accompanied by a dense calendar of readings, talks and guided tours.
