Avenue Kléber is one of the avenues in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It is one of the twelve avenues leading out of the Arc de Triomphe. It was named after Jean Baptiste Kléber, a French general during the French Revolutionary Wars. Before 1879, it was called l'avenue du Roi-de-Rome, in memory of Napoleon II.
It is "lined with grand examples of the ceremonial, yet never austere, buildings favored by Haussmann." Of note are the Icelandic and Peruvian embassies (Number 8 and Number 50, respectively), the Hôtel Raphael at Number 17, and The Peninsula Paris hotel at Number 19.
