The Paul Klee museum is an interesting place - not only for its art collection but as well for the architecture of the building integrated in the landscape.

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 and our tickets gave us access to the Kunstmuseum as well. It's a great place to visit if you appreciate modern architecture and modern... More

- you only see a very limited selection based on a theme, that changes a couple of times during a year. We really missed a section with a permanent presentation of highlights. The museum welcomes and has specific offers for children.

We particularly enjoyed a wonderful concert with cellist Nicolas Altstaedt and pianist Faisal Say. Good acoustics in the concert hall.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this, but was delighted, especially by the "angle" paintings, loved other works too. Set in a parkland setting. Sculpture park nearby, don't miss it

I took the number 12 bus there, which was a nice ride, but the high price for the museum and the audioguide was not worth it. Unless you love Klee and want to see his grave, I would recommend you rather go to the Kunstmuseum, which has some nice Klees, and not take the time to go to this one.... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this art gallery. Having admired many of Paul Klee's artworks at other galleries, the prospect of one gallery dedicated to this surrealist artist was something to relish. The building itself is a piece of art in itself. There are three sections connected by a wave like roof that falls gently away into the... More

When I came to visit there was an exhibition that was centered around the theme of Trees. All the art on the upper level was by different artists and downstairs contained the art of Paul Klee. They also have a children's center where they do art activities with the kids. You can buy a listening program in German, French, Italian... More

If you are a surrealist fan this is a must. They have a very large number of paintings sketches and sculptures from this period, as well as informative film clips. Paul Klee is featured of course but there are many other famous artists Miro, Picasso etc. whose work is also hanging. the 3 interlocking buildings and the surrounding parkland is... More
