Kunsthalle Restaurant

Rheinbad Breite, Freymond-Guth, and Weiss Falk: Martin Hatebur’s Basel

No contributor

Tomorrow, 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 Martin HateburPresident of Kunsthalle Basel.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
The Restaurant Kunsthalle has one of the most beautiful courtyards in the city, and besides classic dishes such as “Haché Hörnli,” they make a great burger. The Restaurant has a salon this year dedicated to Verner Panton with an impressively installed original Panton lamp covering the whole ceiling of the room.

​WHERE TO SEE ART
The city is filled with art, spanning from blockbuster museum shows at Fondation Beyeler and Kunstmuseum Basel to exhibitions by emerging artists at, among others, the galleries Freymond-Guth, Weiss Falk, von Bartha, Nicolas Krupp, and of course Kunsthalle Basel, initiated by artists and the oldest institution in Switzerland for contemporary art.

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
After a day at Art Basel, it is an absolute must to go for a swim in the Rhine and relax at the Rheinbad Breite with an inspiring drink. It will provide you with great energy to continue your art evening Parcours.
