We love the Swiss capital, and not just for its beautiful streets and quaint tile-roofed buildings.

Here are some of the reasons we adore Bern:

1. Physics Lessons. Where was Einstein when he created that famous E=MC2 formula? Bern, of course. And that’s where the first Einstein Museum is too. Maybe you’ll learn what sort of physics gave him that great hair. The Einstein Museum is located at Helvetiaplatz 5.

2. Animal Talk. Now through July, visitors to the Museum of Communication can get a glimpse at the phenomena of communication between humans and animals at a special “Animal Talk” exhibit. Find the Museum of Communication at Helvetiastrasse 16.

3. Jazz Out. The Bern Jazz Festival is back for its 32nd year, now through May 20, with a spectacular line-up of jazz greats and newcomers.
