«24 Stops»


The Rehberger-Weg, which is around five kilometers long, links two countries, two municipalities, two cultural institutions – and countless stories. The path runs between Weil am Rhein and Riehen, between the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Campus.

Guided by «24 Stops», 24 waymarkers created by the artist Tobias Rehberger, walkers can explore a uniquely diverse natural and cultural landscape. The Rehberger-Weg and its waymarkers therefore provide an opportunity to get to know both the history and stories of the surroundings and its inhabitants and to tell them again, as well as encouraging an excursion into nature.

The idea of a cross-border path was initiated within the framework of IBA Basel 2020. The Fondation Beyeler, the municipality of Riehen, Vitra, and the town of Weil am Rhein are jointly responsible for the idea’s development and implementation. The Swiss watch company Swatch is generously supporting the project as the Presenting Partner and funded the artist’s creation of the objects that demarcate the path. The first 12 waymarkers were installed in September 2015. Since June 2016, «24 Stops» can be enjoyed with all 24 waymarkers in place.

Springtime along the «24 Stops» – architecture, art and nature on the Rehberger-Weg
Sunday, 15.5.2022, 2–6pm

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.

A free shuttle service will be operated between the Vitra Campus and Fondation Beyeler.
