Art Tours through the Upper Rhine Valley
The three-country region offers tours on modern and contemporary art
One artistic region! The Upper Rhine Valley, otherwise known as the three-country region in Germany, France and Switzerland, will present its cross-national tours on modern and contemporary art from March 2014 on. From the Palatinate to the Basel region, from Alsace to the Black Forest – these tours include artistic highlights throughout the Upper Rhine Valley
With Upper Rhine Valley’s new sub-brand, Art Valley, travelers can find a variety of individual and group travel packages and suggestions perfectly tailored to lovers of modern art. With four finely tuned itineraries to choose from, visitors can go on 1, 2, or 3 - day adventures to discover the gems of modern and contemporary art spread throughout the region. “Almost no other region in Europe is home to a denser network of top quality collections and exhibitions revolving around modernism, current artistic trends, and design than the three-country region between Karlsruhe and Basel”, so Bernd Dallmann, Project Director of Upper Rhine Valley. The four routes on offer serve as maps to the area’s most important artistic treasures, like Karlsruhe’s ZKM | Center for Art and Media, the MAMCS | Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Strasbourg, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, or Basel’s Schaulager and Beyeler Foundation Art Museum, just to name a few. In addition to restaurant and hotel tips, the itineraries also come complete with special suggestions for other touristic highlights and attractions along the way. Every route leads through cozy villages and cities rich in history, inviting travelers to fall in love with the region itself and experience its culinary specialties, unparalleled cultural scene, and beautiful landscapes.
