Basel Urban Art Get to know the most creative city in Switzerland

Issue: 1/2019
Discover Basel's impressive street art in style.

Home of the prestigious Art Basel exhibition which gathers top artists from all over the world, and to exquisite art museums (Kunstmuseum Basel, Fondation Beyeler and Museum Tinguely), Basel simply breathes creativity and culture.

What is unique about this bustling industrial city is that art is not confined to museums and galleries.

 

You can see it all over the city, right out there on the streets.

And Philipp Brogli is the man who knows where to find it.

Philipp Brogli is an art promoter and curator who shares his passion for street art with a series of brand new, out of-the-box tours.

His ‘Urban Art' tours are meant to show you the best street art hotspots of Basel, discover world famous artists like Invader or TIKA and learn to value street art for what it truly is, an attempt to give meaning and to own the urban space that surrounds us.

Why the ‘Urban Art Experience' Tour is a special experience

Among the 'Urban Art' tours, the 'Urban Art Experience' tour is quite a jewel.

One might call this a complete tour of Basel, as it encompasses so many things in such a short time frame: in addition to exploring urban art hotspots, you get to be driven around in style in a Bentley like no other, one that is covered in graffiti.

 

Stroll through the city of Basel, from obscure street corners to industrial landscapes and, in summer only – get to indulge in the local's favorite summer activity, floating on the river Rhine.

This tour will have you explore the hip parts of Basel in style.

In addition to the private urban tour through Basel and the ride in the 'young-at-heart' Bentley, the tour includes one overnight stay at the iconic Les Trois Rois hotel (with sumptuous breakfast) and the Basel Card (free use of public transport in Basel, 50% discount on cultural and leisure activities)
