About ten minutes outside of Bern and this museum was spectacular. The space itself was thrilling and the deep archive of Klee images was stunning. Such a treat to see this place and I can’t recommend it enough!

It's far from the old town, but you can take the bus 12 to visit the Paul Klee Center. The building is very modern, but the area of visiting is short. For me was a disappointment.

The architecture of the museum is great and could be the most modern in Bern. An easy 20 minute ride on Bus 12 at the SBB station takes one right to the museum. The Paul Klee exhibition was very thoughtful, focusing on his time in...More
