The Brasserie Hugo, Le Rhin Bleu, and Fondation Beyeler: Roland Wetzel’s Basel

By Whitewall

June 9, 2017

Next week, Art Basel opens with 291 of the world’s leading galleries showing over 4,000 artists. There, attendees will find copies of Whitewaller Basel—out to help guide guests through the busy art fair and the surrounding city life in Basel, Berlin, and Zurich. Below, we’re sharing tips on where to go for dinner, drinks, and art inspiration from Roland Wetzel, Director of Museum Tinguely.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
The Brasserie Hugo or Le Rhin Bleu, situated on a terrace overlooking the River Rhine. What is definitely worth a visit is the Markthalle Basel with its many different food stalls offering culinary treats from all over the world, all enclosed by a huge domed roof.

WHERE TO SEE ART
Next to the well-known institutions such as the Fondation Beyeler or the Kunstmuseum Basel, Basel also has a rich culture of galleries and off-spaces that are definitely worth visiting. Strolling through the city, you can discover all kinds of artworks installed in public space, for instance, the famous Fasnachtsbrunnen by Jean Tinguely or Richard Serra’s sculpture Intersection on the square in front of Theater Basel.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
In summer, there are many pop-up refreshment stands along the banks of the River Rhine, so-called buvettes, which offer an ideal place to relax and enjoy an after-work drink or dinner with friends with a stunning view of the river and the facade of the old town.
