Einstein House (Einsteinhaus) Tours

Einstein House (Einsteinhaus)
Nobel Prize-wining physicist Albert Einstein (1879–1955) resided in a sandstone-fronted second-floor apartment in Bern between 1903 and 1905 while working at the Federal Institute of Intellectual Property. Although he lived and worked in the city for seven years, 1905 was pivotal to his life as he developed his Theory of Relativity, turning scientific perceptions on their heads and laying down the foundations of modern physics. His modest two-room apartment in the heart of Bern’s UNESCO-listed Old Town (Altstadt) is now a museum showcasing his family life with wife Mileva Marić and son Hans Albert. 

To celebrate the centenary of Einstein’s life in Bern, the apartment was restored in 2005 to feature period furniture and décor. The suite of rooms feature original family photographs and permit a sneaking glance into the private life as well as the unorthodox genius of one of the world’s brightest intellectuals. On the third floor of the townhouse is an exhibition celebrating Einstein’s many achievements in physics plus a 20-minute video detailing his life in Switzerland.

Lose yourself in laid back Bern, the capital of Switzerland. Labelled as, “the most beautiful thing we have ever seen” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in 1779 (a master of aesthetic criticism) it is a corner of the world not to be missed by the hardy traveller. The Old Town of Bern became a UNESCO world heritage site in 1983 to protect the stunning medieval architecture. Rightly so, as it contains many of the well-known sights of the city and offers a spectacular view of the Alps.
