OPENING UP NEW HORIZONS
MÜNSTERTAL & STAUFEN
Something really special awaits you in the direct vicinity of Spielweg: The Beekeeping Museum. It is one of the biggest of its kind in the world and provides a unique display, including live bees and a countless number of exhibits. A bit further down the Münstertal valley is the St. Trudpert monastery church.
A visit to the beautiful town of Staufen, the historical home of Dr. Faustus, including a trip up to the castle, is almost a must coming from Spielweg.
BALE & SURROUNDINGS
Here you actually really don’t know where to start … Bale has so many fantastic museums such as the Tinguely Museum, the Art Museum, Haus zum Kirschgarten … but Bale is also always worth a shopping spree. And the Fondation Beyeler in Bale-Riehen attracts visitors from around the world with its outstanding special exhibitions. Not to mention the Art Basel which takes place annually.
On the way there you pass Weil am Rhein – the Vitra Design Museum is one of the leading design museums in the world. Breathtaking architecture by Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando and Herzog & de Meuron forms this unique backdrop.
FREIBURG & SURROUNDINGS
The university town of Freiburg has an old city that is well worth taking a look at. Here you can find the Münstermarkt around the cathedral which is the ideal place for gourmets with its large range of produce. And on this occasion, it is worth taking a detour up the Schlossberg . From there you can see the Kaiserstuhl, a byword for all wine lovers.
STRASSBOURG & COLMAR
Strassbourg with its cathedral, the beautiful streets for shopping and the Musée d’Art Moderne not only entices Francophile guests. Something special: The Ungerer Museum. This is living artist has been honoured by means of museum for the first in France – over 8000 drawings, hundreds of posters, books, graphics and sculptures by this provocative artist are presented on two floors.
And the typical Alsation town of Colmar is only a stone’s throw away. Here a visit to the Musée Unterlinden is an absolute must.
