Location map of the way

24 Stops , also known as Rehberger-Weg, is an art trail between the Vitra Design Museum ( Lage ) on the premises of the furniture manufacturer Vitra in Weil am Rhein in Germany and the Fondation Beyeler Art Museum ( Lage ) in Riehen, Switzerland . The path connecting the two countries was designed by the artist Tobias Rehberger and is five kilometers long. It was opened in September 2015 with twelve sculptures and installations and leads over the Tüllinger Berg . It was inaugurated on June 12, 2016 and completed with twelve more stops. This path is one of eight entries for the International Building Exhibition 2020 (IBA) in Basel. The clients of this project are the communities of Weil am Rhein and Riehen, Vitra, Swatch and the Beyeler Foundation. There are also artistic and art history tours on the way. [1]

The path is steep in some places, but it is also accessible with wheelchairs. In the direction from the Vitra Museum to the Fondation, there are shorter steep climbs and longer, slightly sloping stretches.

The twenty-four stations starting at the Fondation Beyeler are:
