Avenue Kléber is one of the avenues in 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.
