Schaulager, Lily’s, and Romantik Hotel Spielweg: Tina Kim’s Basel

Today, Art Basel opens with 291 of the world’s leading galleries showing over 4,000 artists. There, attendees will find copies of Whitewaller Basel—out to help guide guests through the busy art fair and the surrounding city life in Basel, Berlin, and Zurich. Below, we’re sharing tips on where to go for dinner, drinks, and art inspiration from Tina KimFounder of Tina Kim Gallery.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Traditionally, I like to dine at Der Teufelhof and Restaurant St. Albaneck in Basel for dinner. For a total dive I go to Lily’s, and if the weather is nice I like to sit outside and enjoy a cold beer and delicious food. I also love the café at Fondation Beyeler.

WHERE TO SEE ART
Kunsthalle Basel, Fondation Beyeler, Schaulager, and Museum for Contemporary Art (Museum für Gegenwartskunst).

WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
Over the weekend I like to go to the Romantik Hotel Spielweg, which is only an hour away from Basel. I love going to the beautiful German countryside to enjoy the fresh air, and if I can manage it, I also like to go hiking. Having breakfast there is always lovely.
