A photo tour of Einstein’s apartment in Switzerland

Einsteinhaus is located in a regular apartment building in Bern, Switzerland, but an extraordinary man used to live here: Albert Einstein. For just two years, from 1903 to 1905, Einstein called this small apartment home, yet while he was working at the Swiss patent office and living in this space, he also published his very famous Annus Mirabilis papers, which ‘became the foundational work not only for his research, but almost all of astrophysics to come’.

This apartment at Kramgasse No. 49 has been preserved in the state Einstein kept it in, complete with period furniture and housewares. It’s open to the public and will cost you just under $8 to gain entry into the world of Einstein.
