At the Emmentaler Show Dairy, where traditional craft meets the latest technology, an all-encompassing farm experience awaits visitors as they are introduced to the famous Emmentaler cheese. What is probably the best-known cheese in the world, the Emmentaler AOP, is produced here in the midst of the rolling hills of the Emmental valley.
Groups can make their own cheese under the expert guidance of a cheesemaker. Guided tours and farm visits are possible by appointment. Even without a reservation, a visit to the Emmentaler cheese dairy is possible at any time during opening hours. The public cream cheese workshop takes place every day at 2 pm and at 4 pm the Emmentaler AOP is taken out of the vat in the traditional way by skilled hands of our cheese makers.
