The beginnings around 1972 - the first Swiss diving shop
On April 1, 1972, no joke, Urs Käser opened the first specialist diving shop in Switzerland at Hallerstrasse 2 in Bern. And now you know where the name Tauchsport Käser comes from, namely from the founder Urs Käser. He worked as a young salesman for a Bernese department store, which added diving articles to its product range as early as the 1960s. Urs was immediately struck by the diving virus and registered for his first diving course at the Dreizack diving club in Berne in 1969. The department store was closed in 1972 and Urs was given the opportunity to take over the diving program. He dared to take the step into self-employment.
