Welcome to Bistro Kunstmuseum

Host Esther Sidler and her team welcome you to the restaurant of Kunstmuseum Basel, located in the heart of the city. An ideal location to meet people and to pamper your palate in a minimal and elegant ambience.


Friday, January 18, 2019 - Basel Museumsnight

From 6 pm - 2 am the Bistro opens its doors for the Museumsnight. To support the Kunstmuseums' main theme of F├╝ssli we offer British culinary specialities from Fish'n'Chips, British sandwiches to London Mule and the Ueli Shakesbeer while watching British TV & film classics like Monty Python. See you.



Because of the construction site for the Parking Kunstmuseum, traffic is diverted and the tram station is temporarily closed.

In order to create space for the upcoming construction of the Parking Kunstmuseum Basel, underground lines are being laid. This will result in the partial closure of the St. Alban-Graben and the temporary closure of the "Kunstmuseum" tram stop.

From 14 January to 9 March 2019, the St. Alban-Graben will be closed to traffic in the direction of Wettsteinplatz. The detour is via Aeschenplatz. There are no restrictions for pedestrians or cyclists.

Due to the construction of the works management, the tram stop "Kunstmuseum" will not be served in either direction between 21 January and 18 February 2019. Travellers to the Kunstmuseum are asked to get off and on at the "Bankverein" stop.
