Business hours

The prominent scientist lived with his family in Einstein’s Summer House from 1929 to 1932. He was able to focus here and relax by hiking and sailing. He called the house in Caputh his paradise, his “Häusle” little house, a place where, as he explained, you were able to not give a hoot about the world. Although the house was originally built as a summer house, Einstein lived there almost throughout the entire year, apart from the coldest months of the year. He only left Caputh from April to November to give talks or appear in public. He enjoyed hiking through the woods or sailing his boat on Lake Templiner See. Visitors can still sense the spirit of Einstein today: in the summer house built by Konrad Wachsmann.
