“Worth a visit!”

Zentrum Paul Klee (Paul Klee Center)
Ranked #10 of 97 things to do in Bern
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

As an architect, I very much enjoyed visiting the Paul Klee Museum to see Renzo Piano's building that mimics the rolling Swiss hills.

Only two exhibits were open. Paul Klee exhibit with about 25 paintings with a very very informative audio guide and an interactive exhibit by attempting to throw a bean bag at a wall of cups filled with paint. You got a chance to see the process of different filled cups of paint that have fallen on a blank canvas over time.

Expected a little more to see from the museum with the local Swiss Art room temporary closed but with October being the down season, it's expected.

Cafe food was quite good.(Salad & Sandwich)

Worth the visit!

Excellent presentation of Klee's work. Guided tour gave us a much better understanding of his particular style.

Full of light and air, emerging from a green hillside on the outskirts of Bern. Fascinating material from one of the great leaders of modernism. Good food and drink in the cafe. Lots of activities for kids in the special rooms reserved for them with a selective of creative projects to try.

Very modern building which blends beautifully into its surroundings. Check what they are exhibiting first, we saw a exhibition on his caricature work with other artists, whilst interesting we did not see many of his paintings which was a bit disappointing. Well worth a visit If you are not familiar with his work.
