Art along the Rhine

There is nothing better than a break in one of the numerous artistic centres along the EV15, for recharging batteries and resourcing the mind. The Chur Museum of Fine Art, the modern art museum in Rolandseck, the Tomi Ungerer Museum in Strasbourg, the Design museum in Weil-am-Rhein, the museums in Basel and Bonn... there is something for everyone!

  • Basel: Its museums

    Basel's museums and galleries house several important international works of art. Each year more than one million visitors visit 36 exhibition. Compared to other similarly-sized cities, Basel has one of the highest densities of museums and galleries in the world. Art aficionados should not miss “Art Basel”, the largest annual modern art show in Europe. It is held every year in mid-June.

  • Chur: Graubünden Museum of Fine Arts

    Housed in Villa Planta, which was built in 1874-75 by the architect Johannes Ludwig, the Museum of Fine Arts in Chur is home to works of art predominantly by Swiss or Graubünden artists and sculptors from the 18th century to the present day. On display are works by, amongst others, Alberto Giacometti, Giovanni Segantini and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.

  • Napoleon Museum of the Arenenberg Castle

    Overlooking the lower part of Lake Constance, the Arenenberg castle was the main residence of the former Queen Hortense of Holland and her son, Prince Louis Napoleon, future Napoleon III, who spent his adolescence in this castle while studying at Augsburg, Bavaria. Beneath its appearance as a country manor, the Arenenberg castle does not give any clues as to the treasures hidden within. Visitors can discover a whole series of remarkable furniture and decoration in First Empire, Biedermeier and Second Empire styles, completed by an exceptional collection of artwork. It is the only museum devoted to the history of Napoleon in a Germany-speaking country.

  • Weil am Rhein: Vitra Design Museum

    The Vitra Design Museum is one of the biggest design museums in the world. The American architect Frank Gehry, known, in particular, for designing the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, has created an architectural masterpiece made up of towers, ramps and cubes. Permanent exhibitions showing the historical and contemporary developments in the world of design provide visitors with the opportunity of discovering the diversity and importance of design.
