The reputation of the Swiss city of Basel among tourists is due more to its historical and cultural heritage than to its banks and industries. As a city on the Rhine, Basel is often referred to as Switzerland's cultural capital. The Kunsthalle is one of the most rewarding places to visit.

Basel's Kunsthalle is a gallery for contemporary art, exhibiting emerging artists and organizing art events.

From Aparthotel Adagio Basel City you can reach the Kunsthalle in 15 minutes on foot via the Wettsteinbrücke bridge or by ferry across the river. It is located in the museum district, not far from the Kunstmuseum, with which it should not be confused.

The Basel Kunsthalle is a building with a great deal of space and impressive skylights that showcase its works of art in a magnificent way.

As eight exhibitions take place in succession throughout the year, you will always have the opportunity to discover both Swiss and international artists. It promotes the development of art and supports artists at the outset of their careers. For example, huge artists such as Munch, Gauguin, van Gogh and Mondrian were exhibited here at the beginning of the 20th century when they were still only emerging artists. The same was true of Jackson Pollock and Jeff Koons.

A walk around this gallery ensures moments you won't forget in a hurry. The exhibitions themselves are presented in an innovative form.

Regardless of the season, lectures, film screenings and readings by artists ensure the Kunsthalle presents the different practices of its artists to the public in a dynamic way.

As a result, the visitor has the opportunity to further themselves by discovering current art movements and trends.

It should be noted that since 2004, the Museum of Swiss Architecture has been housed in the same building.
