Truly revolutionary events took place behind the sandstone facade at Kramgasse 49, in a small apartment on the second floor: this is where Albert Einstein (1879-1955), then an official at the Intellectual Property Office, developed his five most important ones, created in Bern around 1905 scientific work, including special relativity and light quantum theory. Here quantum leaps occurred in modern physics!
Einstein lived with his wife Mileva Maric and their son Hans Albert in the humble apartment that has belonged to the Albert Einstein Society since 1977. It has been restored to its original state so that you can immerse yourself in the world of the scholarly couple, not least through the contemporary furniture and objects. The exhibition in
The 3rd floor provides information about Einstein's groundbreaking findings, and a 20-minute video introduces him to his life, thinking and work.
