Guided tour of Novartis Campus - Classic Fabrikstrasse

Modern architecture


The St. Johann campus has been turned into a modern workplace including first-class architecture and exquisite design

The project benefits the company, its employees and the city of Basel, which has been the home base of Novartis for more than 20 years. Discover this place of innovation and research with us. You have the opportunity to hear about the history and work philosophy of the campus on selected Saturdays and to see the office and laboratory buildings from the outside, with expert guidance around the facility by Novartis employees.

This tour along the site's principal axis includes numerous buildings by architects such as Diener & Diener, Sejima & Nishizawa (SANAA), Frank O. Gehry, David Chipperfield, Tadao Ando and others as well as various artworks and green areas. Novartis donates the majority of the proceeds to an internationally or locally renowned social institution.
