  • A small terraced house near Bern city centre where Einstein lived for a few years in his younger days. There are a few dresses from the period and a baby cot but not clear if they were his family's...

  • The house of Einstein in Bern. Nice museum, small and cozy that spans over two floors. They do not accept credit cards, only cash in CHF or EUR.

  • A visit here helps you time travel back to 1900's. Imagine Einstein's life walking up the stairs and into his little flat. Good to help kindle this thought, helped by a timeline of facts and events listed on a floor above. We visited during weekdays, hardly any wait. Not expensive and child friendly. Wheelchairs are not possible unfortunately.
  • A must stop by in Bern if you are curious where the first foundations of relativity theory saw the light and learn more about the journey of Einstein in both professional and personal life. Quite interesting I would say.
