Art Museum
Zentrum Paul Klee, dedicated to the renowned artist Paul Klee, contains a huge portion of his work. The majority of the collection was donated by Livia Klee-Meyer, Klee's daughter-in-law, with a small percentage donated from private collections. Visit the museum to see nearly 40 percent of Klee's pieces--almost 900 different works. The museum opened in 2005 in an architecturally significant building consisting of three waves on a green lawn.

  • Fascinating architecture and impressive paintings! There are many average but interesting paintings too, but a number of truly great masterworks.
  • This museum was pretty far out of the way and a bit underwhelming given its size. We didn't know who Paul Klee was going in and expected more exhibits. Staff were very nice though.
  • cé T tro biun jé adorrré lol xd
  • Nice place for every weather. Books and albums on Art when it is too windy to make a tour around the construction
  • For Paul Klee lovers this wonderful museum is well worth a visit. I don't know much about this artist, though the exhibition has good volumes of information in english to learn about him. Good facilities and easy to get to by public transport. Bus to the door and tram a short walk away. Food is average and the usual expensive museum fare. Architecturally the building is fascinating.
