DID YOU KNOW?

WHY ISN'T THE KAESERBERG OPEN TO THE PUBLIC EVERY DAY?

The operation of trains on such a network requires an enormous amount of maintenance. The technical team must regularly repair rail vehicles, clean and maintain rails and wheels.
If we're open to the public, our trains will run more than
7 hours and the model railway manufacturers did not necessarily foresee such an intensive use. Therefore, our network is open to the public for a little more than a hundred days a year and to private visitors for another fifty or so days.

THE TICKET

The cardboard tickets (also called Edmondson's ticket) in the format 30.5 x 57 mm were invented in 1836 by the Englishman Thomas Edmondson. The then usual issue of small tickets as tickets taken over from the stagecoach time, did not satisfy him and he began to develop a new ticket system.

In the train, the ticket inspector punched the cardboard ticket with a punch. Each ticket inspector had his own punching machine and the respective punching machines had different punching dies. Based on the shape of the punched hole, it was possible to determine which ticket inspector had carried out the inspection. There were rules where the ticket had to be punched: at the beginning of the journey, at an interruption and at the end of the journey.

Electronic tickets only replaced cardboard tickets 150 years after their invention. The sale of cardboard tickets in Switzerland was almost completely discontinued for the 2007/2008 timetable change. Your cardboard ticket was printed in Worb, the colourful tickets should remind you of the 90s and especially of your visit to the Kaeserberg.

THE KAESERBERG AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Respect for the environment is an ethical principle. During the planning and construction of the building, the Kaeserberg Foundation focused on clean and renewable energies.
The plant is supplied with 72 solar collectors (92 m²). The building is heated by a heat pump. This is fed by 6 geothermal probes, which reach up to 150 meters into the depth.

The Kaeserberg - an environmentally friendly foundation.
