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.

  • I just went to the Paul Klee Center. You can take bus 12 all the way from the train station. It is uphill at the end so the bus is a good idea. The three buildings are interesting. The middle building...  more »
  • The architecture of the center is very beautiful, but the collection of Paul Klee is quite disappointing. Very few works of Klee are on display in a small room and most of them are drawings  more »
  • It's a short hop from the old town by the number 12 bus, which stops outside. The building was designed by Renzo Piano, with a beautiful wavy structure. There were two exhibitions on when we visited a...  more »

  • Interesting exhibitions. Great architecture. Nice service.
  • Fabulous fabulous. Situation high and one can see hills of Switzerland, expected a "song" from that movie. Overlooks a freeway but presentation superb
  • Bella struttura, ma di Paul Klee c'era davvero poco. Nice building, but not as many Paul Klee works as expected. The exposition is pretty small.
  • Building and it's surroundings were gorgeous, exhibition was alright.
  • Very good choice of works on display + great building.

Where to stay in Bern

In historic Bern, the bulk of the accommodation offerings are confined to the peninsula, where the Old Town or "Altstadt" is located. Staying here gives you the convenience of being within walking distance to everything--which will come in handy in this generally car-free area. Throughout the Old Town you'll find a number of mid-range three-star hotels complete with their original 19th-century characteristics. A couple hostels and pensions round out the options here, though these tend to be a bit more expensive than one might expect. Outside of the Old Town, there are a few hotels with cheaper rates, though you compromise on convenience and atmosphere. The city also boasts a few stunning four- and five-star hotels, should your budget be forgiving.
