EN: This two-story transformer tower stands on the Bruderholz hill on the outskirts of Binningen. The station is the standard model of the electricity company "Elektra Birseck" from the 1920s. The house has a pyramidal roof and a string course between the floors. There is a tiled porch above the entrance. The ports of the former overhead lines are still mounted on the south side. The house obviously received some fresh paint recently and is probably still in operation.
