You will also get a look behind the scenes where the bears lived in earlier years.

The BearPark is home to Finn, Björk, and their daughter Ursina. The animals have been living in the new park along the bank of Aare since 2009. The new BearPark provides a landscape where the brown bears can climb, fish and play, but also just retreat and relax.

The grounds cover nearly 6,000 square meters and extend from the former BearPits down to the river’s edge. With woodsy areas, bushes, grottos, and a spacious pool running parallel with the Aare, the bears are able to live a real bear’s life. Finn, the father bear, is especially fond of the pool.

Kandinsky, Arp, Picasso … Klee & Friends
For the first time, Paul Klee and his impressive circle of friends are being presented in an extensive exhibition with works from the collection of the Kunstmuseum Bern and the Zentrum Paul Klee.
Like all artists, Klee relied upon a broad network of connections and his encounters with his artist friends left reciprocal traces in many different ways in the artists’ thought and work.
The exhibition includes highlights from the work of Paul Klee and his most important artist friends, including those from the Blaue Reiter and the Bauhaus, as well as those involved in the movements of Surrealism, Cubism and Dadaism, with works by Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, Alexej von Jawlensky, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Pablo Picasso, Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp as well as André Masson.

Museum:
Built in 2005 by leading Italian architect Renzo Piano, the cultural institution displays the world's most important collection of works by artist Paul Klee.
Bern, capital of Switzerland and UNESCO World Heritage Site received a new landmark in 2005: the Zentrum Paul Klee. The bold masterpiece in steel and glass designed by leading Italian architect Renzo Piano is worth a visit in itself.
