On December 1, 2014 the Kimmel Foundation for Postal History was founded in Küssnacht SZ. The founder Kurt Kimmel is a well known international expert for philately and postal history. He has decided to convey to a wider community his knowledge and experience by presenting the Collections of the Foundation to the public.

If philately and postal history have a place in your heart, you have now the opportunity to participate! You can also tell us about your collections or your publications if these are of importance to Postal History.  If you are interested, please contact us !

In march 2017, a house for postal history was acquired, in which the collections can be exhibited and seminars organized. See rubric Museum.

The foundation is a tax-excempt charity and does not pursue any commercial purpose. See rubric Patron.


The Foundation promotes postal history studies as a meaningful research work and supports their publication.

Two prizes (two gold coins Krüger Rand from the foundations assets) are awarded each year and handed over with a diploma in the name of the foundation after a short laudation to the winner. See rubric Honorary Awards.

At the moment we ask for your patience. We are busy with the renovation and other projects to create the right conditions for our future museum. We will tell about the progress under the rubric News.
