  • For 6 francs this was definitely an interesting and budget friendly activity. The apartment is small and one can get a feel of what Einstein's life might have been like in this small enclosure. One...

  • Visited the museum today and it was amazing. I've always heard that he's had a small apartment in Bern while studying at the University and I've finally got to visit it. The museum manages to offer insights into his life, love and family. You can visit the museum for CHF6 and you can get the entrance tickets at the door without having to book in advance.
  • We had the Swiss Travel Pass and it was 50% off. We were in Old Town and way back to our hotel. The museum only took cash so we had to go to an ATM. Luckily, we made it just before they closed. Einstein really didn’t live here very long and the display is small. If we were constraint with time, we would have not bothered.
