The visit to the Kaeserberg begins with a film that tells the story of the realisation of a dream and presents the stages of the museum's 17th anniversary. After the film, the visitors are invited to explore the main station of the model railway, and then to view the landscape of the model railway one floor up.
The visitor will be amazed by the level and degree of perfection offered and the time spent on the model train will not leave him time to discover this extraordinary fresco. The total amazement he will feel is accompanied only by the curiosity to discover the countless facets of this "animated painting", whose thousand details have all been treated with special care.

A fantastic display of train modelling in the 21st century! For a train modeller of 50 years one could see so much how the hobby has evolved. Huge display on 3 levels with a short film at the start. Then a self guided visit over the 3 levels with a running visual commentary/expalnation. You admire the trains as day turns to night and then the sun rises again.Fantastic sound display as well. Great for young and young at heart train enthusiasts. Well worth the diversion if in the region.

Great way to spend some time.I went there with my 2 years old and it was very interesting. First a video explaining how all the museum was made and then you can profit of the miniature trains. Really fun to watch with so much great details.

Passionate about railways since childhood, I found my child's soul thanks to my visit to the CFK! The museum is not open every day, but it's worth the wait! Excellent value for money! Highly recommended to all siderodromophiles and other curious people as well!
