I have spent a whole day at Vitra campus and I have joined 2 guided tours to visit the Vitra Design Museum and the other one was around the campus including the factory buildings, the dome and the Fire Station which general visitors do not have access to. There’re some subtle but interesting design in the Fire Station that probably... More

I'll never take a chair for granted again! The guided tour gave an insight into the history of chair design with 7,000 examples to view. Now I will look for form functionality textile and art. The buildings that house them are an architectural feat of design in themselves. Spent a lovely evening dining in the deli restaurant. It's in Germany... More

We visit Vitra Museum regularly (once a month using the free entrance of the "PASS Museum". The subscription to the "PASS Museum" is worth the yearly fee requested). This time it was an exhibition on a designer (unknown to us): Alexander Girard. The exhibition was superbly presented and commented (german-english). We had also the chance to visit a new "de...

If you appreciate modern furniture and design, you'll love this place. Just over the border from Basel in Weil am Rhein in Germany, it's reachable now by Tram 8, although if you have a free Hotel Mobility Pass, you have to pay extra for the bit in Germany. And make sure to take your passport with you in these troublesome... More

And it didn't cost a... More

I've been living in Switzerland 2 years and didn't even know this design gem existed, much less that it was right across the Rhine river from Basel. But I am SO GLAD someone tipped me off! It's about a 20-minute walk from the Weil am Rhein bahnhof. There are no signs, so you walk straight out of the station area... More

It's a well connected place where you can admire lots of pavilions conceived by some of the greatest contemporary architects like Gehry, Hadid and Siza. The VitraHous by Herzog & de Meuron is worth a visit too. Its store has very interesting objects of design to buy or just watch.

Didnt take the tour. *The indoor building is free and has many wonderful exhibits, currently featuring Alice In The Wonderland on the top floor. *There is a clock-slide. Kids and kidults would enjoy it. *lots of designer chairs on the grass and... More
