The visit to the Kaeserberg begins with a movie (departures every 30 minutes between 10am and 3:30pm). It tells the story of the realization of a childhood dream and shows the most important stages of the 17-year construction of the installation. After the film, visitors are invited to discover a two-level car park with 160 trains and a "sound-light" sequence, and then to go up one floor to contemplate the network.
A visit to the Kaeserberg takes about 1h30 on average. Once in the museum, the visitor can stay as long as he wishes. The Kaeserberg close at 5pm.
The visit scenario envisages an alternation of day and night in an imaginary Switzerland of the 90s. Every half hour it gets dark for a full 6 minutes to simulate night-time.
Some are working in the miniature world. Others are shopping, drinking coffee or exercising. Some students take a break and play, others go home. A few vintage cars take part in a rally and a group of tourists enjoy the sun deck on the paddle steamer Gallia, which is leaving the harbour. The circus Knie, just arrived, receives a television team. Meanwhile children enjoy the animals of the circus.
At night a magical mood lies on the miniature landscape. The details fade and the colours soften. New tones are coming up, shadows and electric lights. Ruins appear, church windows glow in their colours, flashing lights announce the police and car headlights illuminate the roadways. The detailed landscape gives way to a relief of light and shadow. Suddenly the trains, subtly lit and breathtakingly realistic, bring new movements and life in the miniature scene.
Whether icy cold in winter or glowing heat in summer, we have a pleasant climate all year round!
The Kaeserberg is completely wheelchair accessible. A wheelchair is available at the reception. A barrier-free toilet with holder handles is at your disposal. All floors including the parking hall can be reached by elevator.
