  • Fondation Beyeler is an art museum in Riehen, near Basel, accessible by tram number 6. The museum was built by the well-known architect Renzo Piano, located in a small park with a view of nature. The art is always great. From now to 16 June 2019, an exhibition about the young Picasso will be shown, blue and pink phase. Don't miss out!

  • Beautifully located building of Renzo Piano in a pleasant looking village near Basel. International Museum Park for sale for the region to Metz and Nancy and Weil. Calming view over Meadows.
