Tram station "Kunstmuseum" temporarily lifted

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

Since October 2018, preparations have been underway for the construction of the Parking Kunstmuseum Basel around the St. Alban-Graben. In order to create space for the upcoming construction and ensure the supply of the surrounding buildings with electricity, gas, water and telecommunications, 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.
