Attractions near Savoy Hotel
Just down the road from the hotel Einsteinhaus is a fascinating attraction, documenting one of the world's most important historical figures and his discoveries. The Einstein Museum is housed in the small Bern apartment, where he resided with his young family. Despite only living here for a short time between 1903-1905, this was the place where he discovered his revolutionary theory of relativity.
Wander round the re-created interiors complete with period features and images from the famous scientist's time in Bern, and head to the upstairs to watch a biographical documentary film all about his life. The museum also features exhibits documenting Einstein's work, including the theory of relativity.
Bern's own mountain is a delightful, classically Swiss recreation area, offering sweeping views across the city and onwards to the Alps on a clear day. A must-do during your trip to Bern, the excitement of a trip to Gurten starts with the funicular ride in bright red carriages up the side of the mountain. Experience the true alpine spirit once you reach the top, with rolling green mountain parklands to hike across and plenty of BBQ areas to stop for an al fresco picnic lunch. Fun for all the family, there's also a children's playground, miniature railway and toboggan runs in the winter.
