The Journey Begins with an Alpine Breakfast

Learn to make your own Cheese

Once your belly is full you will dive into the world of Swiss cheesemaking in a comprehensive workshop guided by an expert cheesemaker that will show you the tricks over a cauldron of hot fresh milk.  You’ll learn the secrets of traditional Swiss alpine cheese making methods and even get the chance to make your own cheese. This interactive session provides a deep appreciation of the artistry involved in creating Swiss cheese from adding the culture and rennet all the way to temperature management, pressing and ageing the cheese. You'll start with raw milk, learn about the curdling process, and eventually mold your own cheese.

Moo Meet & Greet + Cow Cuddling...

A visit to the cheesefarm isn’t complete without meeting the cows. Visit the stables and fields to interact with these gentle animals. You might even get the opportunity to try cow cuddling, a unique and comforting experience that connects you further to the farm’s environment. The cows are an integral part of the cheese production process, and this interaction helps you appreciate their role. You’ll learn about their daily routines, feeding habits, and the care they receive to ensure the highest quality milk production.

Cheesy Whey (foot)bath

After the cheesemaking you are invited to take it very cheesy! Enjoy a soothing cheesy whey (foot) bath. Known for its therapeutic properties, the warm whey offers a relaxing break, allowing you to unwind amidst the tranquil alpine surroundings. The whey bath is rich in nutrients and has been used for centuries in Swiss traditions for its healing properties. As you soak your feet, you can enjoy the serene beauty of the surrounding mountains, listen to the gentle sounds of nature, and let your worries melt away. It’s a unique wellness experience that complements the cheesemaking adventure.


For the true wellness lovers we recommend you bring your swimwear and take a dip in the whey tub. Its warm, soothing and good for the skin after all!

Visit the Cheese Storage Cellar

Conclude your tour with a visit to the cheese storage cellars. Here, you’ll see rows of aging cheese, learn about the aging process, and understand how different conditions affect the cheese's flavor and texture. The cellars are cool and humid, providing the perfect environment for cheese maturation. As you walk through the rows of cheese wheels, your guide will explain the science behind cheese aging, how flavors develop over time, and the meticulous care that goes into each wheel of cheese. This part of the tour adds a fascinating layer of depth to your understanding of Swiss cheesemaking.

Magical Alpine Vies to die for

Throughout your visit, take in the breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps. The picturesque landscape enhances every moment, providing a stunning backdrop to your activities and making your experience truly unforgettable. The rolling hills, lush green meadows, and towering snow-capped peaks create a postcard-perfect setting that’s ideal for photography and relaxation. Whether you’re enjoying your breakfast, participating in the cheesemaking workshop, or taking a break with a whey foot bath, the views of the Alps are a constant reminder of the natural beauty that surrounds you.
