Springtime along the «24 Stops»
Architecture, art and nature on the Rehberger-Weg | SPECIAL (DE/EN)

In conjunction with International Museum Day and Architekturwoche Basel, the »24 Stops« Rehberger-Weg art trail is celebrating the start of the season and inviting the whole family for an excursion with various programme highlights. Four workshops along the path give young and old the chance to discover new perspectives and explore their creativity. An architecture tour starts at the Fondation Beyeler and leads along the Rehberger-Weg through the vineyards to the Vitra Campus. The architectural masterpieces by Renzo Piano, Frank O. Gehry and Herzog & de Meuron are also presented in addition to the objects by artist Tobias Rehberger. Before or after the five-kilometre walk, the Sunday afternoon outing can be rounded off with a picnic on the Vitra Campus or in the park of the Fondation Beyeler.

Highlights from the Collection | GUIDED TOUR (DE)

The guided tour focusses on the highlights from the Vitra Design Museum collection, including rare and singular pieces from designers such as Gerrit Rietveld, Alvar Aalto, Charles & Ray Eames but also less well-known or anonymous designs, rarities and prototypes. The tour offers a unique possibility to experience the history of modern furniture design from its beginnings in the 19th century up to the present day in all its facets – from stylistic and technical innovations to the societal changes reflected in the objects.
