Rhy Art is made in Switzerland Art City Basel

Basel - Switzerland's capital of art and culture

Nestling in the heart of Europe in the three countries corner where Switzerland, Germany and France meet, Basel is a pocket-sized metropolis that combines proverbial Swiss quality with a multicultural population. This makes the city unmistakably open-minded, happy and innovative.

The art of so much art

The city sparkles with all kinds of culture. Nearly 40 museums with their long-established collections and spectacular special exhibitions are the foundation of Basel's reputation as a city of art and museums.

However, art is to be found not only in the many museums but is encountered all over the city, and exciting contrasts are created by the presence of classical patrician houses and mediaeval churches side by side with modern buildings designed by major international architects such as Herzog & de Meuron or Renzo Piano.
