Einstein House

Albert Einstein verbrachte einen Teil seines Lebens in Bern. Er kam 1902 in die Schweizer Hauptstadt und trat beim Eidgenössischen Patentamt eine Stelle an. 1903 bezog er mit seiner Frau Mileva eine Wohnung im 2. Stock an der Kramgasse 49 inmitten des UNESCO-Weltkulturerbes.

Diese Wohnung steht für Besucher offen. Sie ist im Stil der damaligen Zeit eingerichtet und dokumentiert das Leben des Physikers in Bern. In diese Periode fällt auch das Jahr 1905 ‒ Einsteins Sternenjahr “annus mirabilis” ‒ das für ihn die kreativste wissenschaftliche Schaffensperiode war.

Albert Einstein spent part of his life in Bern. He came to the Swiss capital in 1902 and took up a post at the federal patent office. In 1903, he and his wife, Mileva, moved into an apartment in the third floor of Kramgasse 49, in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Today, the apartment is open to tourists. It is furnished in the style of Einstein’s time and documents the life of the physicist during his years in Bern. This period included 1905 – Einstein’s annus mirabilis (extraordinary year) – which was his most creative period of scientific discovery.
