Tour: Königsweg (King’s Way)
This self-guided “digital” tour presents the story and production process of the Emmentaler AOP. Witness how master cheese makers transform top-quality raw milk into what is probably the most famous cheese in the world. The highlight of the tour is a tasting of the original Emmentaler cheese in the middle of the production plant and in the ripening cellar. Explore the fascinating world of the Emmentaler AOP, the “king of cheeses”. A helpful tip: The public cream cheese workshop is held daily at 2 p.m. At 4 p.m. you can watch how a wheel of Emmentaler AOP is lifted by hand from the large vat in the production plant – the same way it has been done for centuries. The process requires a large cloth and a lot of muscle power.
