Read signboards, view pictures, and watch a video that outlines the events of Einstein's life. You'll also see relics, such as baby clothes, his wife's clothing, and old passports.

    The small former residence of Albert Einstein (CA. 1902) recalled many facilities, photos and documents at his important years in Bern. Very static exhibition.

    As the name is Einstein' s House but, in fact, a museum to learn abour Bern and history. The big glass hall showing picture of Einstein was stunning as well as other stories displayed in the museum. G...  more »

    Entrance to the House is chargeable. And we expected to see more personal belongings of Albert and his family instead in 2 floors visited only a parlor with furnishings and other plan practically covered with boards, with some technical tool and a room for the screening of a documentary. We then acquired many more items than you already know of Einstein's life through other media.

  • My wife and I visited. We always enjoy visiting homes of famous people. This was no exception. There are some good displays. They don't accept credit cards, just cash.
  • Great coffee house, worth a stop to even read a little about Albert Einstein's life.
  • Little museum with an explanation of Einstein's life and discoveries. Maybe too expensive the entrance ticket. The café at the ground floor is cozy and beautiful.
  • Visit the former swiss residence of Albert Einstein. A small exhibit will allow you to understand the life of the famous scientist, from birth to his death. The museum is small and centered on biographic aspects rather than his scientific legacy. Worth while your time to meet the person behind E=mc2. Be aware of tight flights of stairs and tight rooms.
  • Small and cute museum. I liked it because it focuses more on the human side of Einstein

Where to stay in Bern

In historic Bern, the bulk of the accommodation offerings are confined to the peninsula, where the Old Town or "Altstadt" is located. Staying here gives you the convenience of being within walking distance to everything--which will come in handy in this generally car-free area. Throughout the Old Town you'll find a number of mid-range three-star hotels complete with their original 19th-century characteristics. A couple hostels and pensions round out the options here, though these tend to be a bit more expensive than one might expect. Outside of the Old Town, there are a few hotels with cheaper rates, though you compromise on convenience and atmosphere. The city also boasts a few stunning four- and five-star hotels, should your budget be forgiving.
