The François Schneider Foundation is ideally placed at the intersection of nature and culture. Located on the route des vins wine route and backed by the final slopes of the southern Vosges mountains, the François Schneider Foundation is the departure point for numerous walks in the forest or in the hills, and for stays at traditional farmhouse inns.

Just 10 km from the former Dominican convent of Guebwiller, now a centre for music and the digital arts, 6 km from the Hartmannswillerkopf/Vieil Armand, and 10 km from the collegiate church of Thann, a masterpiece of Gothic art, the François Schneider Foundation’s Contemporary Art Centre lies at the crossroads of history, heritage and contemporary culture.

It is also easy to make your way onwards to Colmar and the musée Unterlinden, Mulhouse and its different contemporary art spaces, or Basel, with its wealth of institutions devoted to contemporary art.
