Breathtaking architecture, unique meeting and conference space, a stimulating cultural environment and an à la carte entertainment program: the Zentrum Paul Klee offers seminar and conference rooms for 10 to 300 people.

Created by award-winning Italian architect Renzo Piano, the three halls of steel and glass are divided up into a programmatic structure characterized by an interdisciplinary approach.

Besides generous exhibition space the premises also include a state-of-the-art music and performance venue for the Centre’s programs and guest ensem-bles, a multifunctional promenade with numerous communication installations, and plenary halls and seminar rooms with the latest infrastructure for staging national and international conventions.

The fine arts, music, dance, literature, art science, art mediation and conventions therefore do not merely co-exist side by side – they complement each other.

Creative Framework

The catering partner – Eventmakers – offers you a culinary counterpart to the artistic sites in the Museum. The catering team will be pleased to help you organizing your event in the various premises of the Zentrum Paul Klee. Their offer includes welcome coffee, aperitif, drinks during breaks, standing lunch or elegant banquet.

If you wish to take an active part, there are three specially equipped studios where you can access art by using your own artistic creativity.

A creative workshop combined with a guided tour stimulates the power of imagination and communication in the team effect a particular emotional memory value: From a painting for the conference room to a series of wall paintings up to a broadly conceived outdoor space installation, everything is possible.

Event management  and skilled technicians

A professional event management assists the organizer with information and support round the clock. This way all the threads pass through one person, who knows both the building and its infrastructure. For the highly complex technical realization of the congress, whether on site, hybrid or livestream, experienced and competent event technicians are available in the building.

It was officially awarded by the Swiss Location Award in June 2023 as one of the most beautiful event location in Switzerland.

Thus, the Zentrum Paul Klee goes far beyond the boundaries of a traditional art museum.
