Einstein’s hometown was here. 1879 was a very important day for Ulm. Einstein, who turned the entire astrophysics world, was born here. Today, the relics related to Einstein have become tourist attractions. Although his former residence no longer exists, the location is still marked with a red line, and a memorial image of Einstein is erected on it.
The adult education center in the city was also named the Einstein Building. One of the most talked about by tourists is the Einstein Fountain. The sculpture uses the famous grimace of the master to represent his theory of relativity; the wall opposite the fountain is inlaid with a large stone to represent his surname (Einstein means a stone in German). The whole design is very humorous. To pursue more things related to him, the Ai Shi birth paper of the city hall can prove that he is a Ulm “product” like a fake replacement.
In addition, the cathedral deliberately abandoned traditional religious motifs, and special large glass was inlaid with Einstein’s portrait and abstract images representing his theory. There are also Einstein chocolates and coffee cups from the old coffee shop Troglen.
