Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We would have easily given this museum five stars, but with absolutely no air conditioning during horrendous summer heat - which would better preserve the apartment and its original furniture - the interior is brutally hot in July! It’s difficult for visitors to enjoy the history in such conditions.

    Regardless, it is a fascinating preservation of the tiny second-floor apartment Albert Einstein and his long-suffering wife Mileva shared with their infant son for four months in 1905. It was during this brief timespan that the famed scientist developed his most famous equation E = mc^2 that had profound effects on nuclear physics.

    The museum is a rare Swiss facility that actually provides information in English, which was greatly appreciated by all guests. Above the Einstein’s preserved apartment on the second floor, the third floor which was originally unrelated to their history was added to the museum to provide information about the scientist’s life without interfering with the layout of their former living space. That is a wide decision.

    They are all beautiful and interesting. In the early 90's, the sound of the water fountains in Bern remembered you how bored can be a traditional Swiss city on Sunday's afternoon. Today the activity have change and I cannot say if by nostalgy or by age, I miss now the old times where the only noise of the downtown was reduced to their water falling in those not too cold days

    This fountain is just at one side of the cathedral square. It refers to Moses and aptly called Mosesbrunnen.

    The Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen (Fountain of Justice) is a 16th-century fountain in the Old City of Bern, Switzerland. It is the only Bernese fountain to retain all original design elements ,and is listed as a cultural heritage of national significance.

    We covered this as a part of the old city tour of Bern. It's nice

    It is only the reconstructed facade of the library that was demolished in 1909. In front of it is a large fountain. Hence the name "moated castle". Behind it, a piece of forest begins with the Rope Park. A little further you get to the zoo and the river Aare. If you follow the river downstream you will come back to the city (Marzilibahn).
