Klose had 12 months remaining on his Bremen contract and had already outlined his intention to join Bayern in 2008.
However, the Bavarian club have been keen to reach an agreement with their Bundesliga rivals to sign the striker in time for the new season.
Club president Franz Beckenbauer, along with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, had stressed the desire to ensure Klose was added to the squad for next term.
Both clubs have now confirmed that a transfer fee has been agreed, with Klose signing a four-year contract at the Allianz Arena.
Bremen general manager Klaus Allofs said: "Bayern fulfilled our expectations and we approved the transfer under those conditions."
Reports in Germany claim that Bayern will pay é¼15million (£10million) for the Polish-born hit-man, who was top scorer at the 2006 World Cup.
Klose will form a new-look strike-force for Bayern next season following the capture of Italian ace Luca Toni from Fiorentina.
