  • The attraction itself has nothing to do, a simple apartment in central Bern plus another apartment with objects and a film designed about Einstein's life. But knowing that there lived one of the greatest geniuses of humanity and that just in that place he developed his greatest work, the Theory of Relativity, thrilled me very much, so I liked it so much,

  • In the Einsteinhaus you can get comprehensive information about the life of Albert Einstein. A film, various information boards and of course the apartment give a good impression of his time in Bern and beyond.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. Be sure to watch the 20 min video as it supplements the rear of the exhibits. Then there's a lot of reading - but it is fascinating. If you like history and historic people, you'll love this museum.Also if you need to know more after this go to the History museum across the river and there's more on Einstein there
  • This is a small place; however this is a nice and short introduction to Mr. Einstein life. Especially for any age kids and teens nowadays. There is a nice video; however it can be very hot in this room when outside temperature is high. For 30-40 minutes going through Mr. Einstein life this is worthy. If one is interested more and has more time, there is a wonderful Bern Historical Museum.
