Explore the house where Albert Einstein first developed the theory of relativity, forever altering the world of physics, at Einsteinhaus. Here at Kramgasse No. 49, Einstein developed the famed Annus Mirabilis papers, leading to the development of modern physics. Walk through the top floor to get a sense of Einstein's living situation during the period of 1903 to 1905. 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. Keep in mind that the museum is very small and can only accommodate a few groups of visitors at a time.

  • I am a huge science nerd, so I would recommend at least stopping to see this landmark if you are like me. It is just nice to be able to imagine that you are walking in the footsteps of and in the same...  read more »
  • One can admire more than interesting Chronicle of what was the course of Einstein not only in Bern, but also in his previous time and also in the post-war period. The Museum is not of just popular science (though not neglected this area) but also the human part of German genius - which, unfortunately, is too often ignored. Also explanations of disclosure scientific as well as testimonies about the time and the environment in which Einstein live immersed complement them documents that form part of the set of the collection. No need to be a "fond" of physics to enjoy this Museum: just wanting to learn more about one of the great figures of the 20th century, that without leaving their slate managed to change the course of the current era.

  • Unfortunately the House is small (2 rooms), but was inhabited in Bern, couldn't get it to 9 rooms, when Einstein was a patent clerk technical clerk level 3 God. Interesting historical photos (unfortunately the captions are in Italian, as well as the 20-minute film about his life-in English-that is seen on the 2nd floor). Swiss prices (where a coffee it also pays 4.40 Fr), spending 6 FR is very little

  • Awesome piece of history in a historic city. Nothing like being in the presence of greatness and a place where some of the most influential ideas in human history were conceived. Nice little coffee shop downstairs.
  • Einstein must've been wise to rent an apartment at the center of the Old Town. Quite a cramped room, very simple. The original furniture in the apartment were preserved and it's quite overwhelming to be peering out the same window Einstein once owned when the Relativity Theory dawned on him. There is a small entrance fee to enter.
  • It's mildly interesting but not very big. The ticket is not very expensive so worth checking out if you have some time to spare. You get a discount if you have a Swiss travel pass.
  • Lovely place for a coffee and eat something small during the day. Friendly staff and good wine selection. Always a pleasure to stop there on Saturday after a tour in the local market in the same area!
  • Probably one of the most popular bern turistic places
