Riehen... no longer an insider`s tip.

Riehen is no longer an insider tip. This is something which we’re proud of, because Riehen has established itself as a meeting point for art and culture lovers, as well as a home and as a popular oasis for leisure activities. 

Located in a dynamic cultural landscape between the major centres of Basel, Lörrach and Weil am Rhein, the international art scene is just as present here as the regional and local culture. The renowned Fondation Beyeler is a particular highlight – the combination of architecture, art and nature makes the museum a unique experience. 

Another popular attraction with transnational flair is the historical Wettsteinhaus. The Toy Museum Riehen whisks visitors away on an unforgettable journey through time with rare objects from the past, both young and old.

 Designed in line with the latest findings on sustainability, the new natural swimming pool has also become a popular treat. Yet it is just one of many ground-breaking pioneer projects in the environmental sector.

 Riehen‘s parks also offer a world of discovery. You can walk to your heart’s content in the impressive historical grounds. Secluded corners provide the perfect setting for a range of leisure activities and events. 

Riehen is also Basel’s green belt. The agglomeration’s largest recreational area, the Landschaftspark Wiese, extends beyond the municipality‘s boundaries. A number of other beautiful forests surround Riehen, perfect for sports or recreation. Furthermore, part of the municipality is still used for agricultural purposes, adding to Riehen‘s special blend of urban and rural living. 

Riehen was the first winner of the European Energy Award and carries the UNICEF child-friendly municipality label. 

We would be delighted to welcome you to our unique location. Riehen awaits you.
