Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern

3.8
#1 of 13 in Museums in Bern
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. Zentrum Paul Klee is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Bern Edition.

    Went to this museum on a free Saturday (August 2017 very Saturday is free entry). The building itself is very interesting to look at. Inside are Klee's works from different time periods, so some are m...  more »

    The Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, designed by the star architect Renzo Piano, is perfectly integrated in the surrounding landscape. The temporary exhibition "Paul Klee, poet and thinker, should be about how to?" opens new perspectives on the painter, who was also a philosopher and poet in addition to many others. There is also the original books from Klee's private library. The visit of the Centre Paul Klee is a high point for art lovers and very recommended Elen value!

    I had hoped to visit with my mother, 84, who walks with a stick. We drove around the surrounding countryside looking for a way in but didn't find any. There's a drive way with a bollard for deliveries...  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.
