Superb location with views of the Bernese Oberland. A first rate facility for an artist that the Swiss have taken to their hearts.

This is the museum which manages paul klee’s oeuvre. It claims to have 4500 pieces of klee’s art. The building is an architecural pearl. Despite the fact that the museum is rather large and spacious very little is seen of Paul Klee ‘s works. There...More
