The Einsteinhaus (Einstein House) is a museum and former residence of Albert Einstein, located at Kramgasse No. 49 in Bern, Switzerland. Einstein, his wife Mileva Marić, and their son Hans Einstein lived in a flat on the second floor from 1903 to 1905. It was here that Einstein wrote the Annus Mirabilis papers, which introduced his theory of relativity and significantly advanced modern physics. During this period, Einstein was employed at the Federal Institute of Intellectual Property.

The apartment on the second floor is furnished with period-appropriate pieces to accurately depict the living conditions of Einstein and his family. The third floor features exhibits detailing Einstein’s biography and his scientific achievements.

Additionally, a smaller permanent exhibition related to Einstein is located at the Historical Museum of Bern.
