Caputh (also known as Kaputh) is a village in the municipality of Schwielowsee, Potsdam-Mittelmark, Brandenburg, Germany

Nadia Kushnir on November 28, 2009

In the summer of 1929, Einstein invested his savings in the construction of a small house to spend the summer there, away from busy Berlin. The site, at the border of a forest, offers a great view over the lake and the Brandenburg landscape. Unfortunately, last week this view was hidden in foggy haze. The house is built out of wood, which is uncommon in Germany, and looks very elegant and modern.

The summer house in Caputh is the only of the places where Einstein has lived in Germany that is left. It has been restored a few years ago, and is used today as a location for a variety of lectures and cultural events.

Einstein and his wife spent four summers in Caputh, before they left Germany in December 1932 never to come back. Einstein later said that he never felt more comfortable and at ease than when in Caputh.

Скромный дом!

Толик! Это веранда второго этажа. Весь дом внизу. С дороги его не видно. Внизу лес и вокруг - лес.
