Heading to the Swiss Cheese Farm & Alpine Dairy

This Swiss cheesefarm visit & cheesemaking workshop is a half day trip that starts just before 8am. The meeting point is at the Interlaken West train station or the Adventure Hostel Interlaken. From there you will be taken up into the mountains to the Alpine cheese farm and mountain dairy. The 20 minute scenic drive is followed by a short 15 minute country side hike through lush Swiss meadows and a short forest section including a waterfall, before reaching the Alpine dairy. All along the way the views will blow your mind and once you set your sight on the cheese farm you will surely think you have landed in a surreal movie.

Big Alpine Breakfast & Cheese Tasting

Your day begins with a sumptuous alpine breakfast, a hearty meal that sets the tone for the adventures ahead. Picture a spread of freshly baked bread, homemade jams, and an assortment of local cheeses, each with its unique flavor and texture. The breakfast is not only a feast for the taste buds but also a celebration of Swiss dairy excellence. As you savor each bite, you’ll feel a deep connection to the region’s rich culinary traditions.

Cheesemaking Workshop & Make your own Swiss Cheese Wheel

After breakfast, you dive into the cheesemaking workshop, where experienced cheesemakers guide you through the traditional methods of Swiss Alpine cheesemaking. From curdling the milk to molding and aging the cheese, every step is a hands-on experience. You’ll have the opportunity to create your own cheese, gaining insight into the meticulous process that transforms fresh milk into the beloved Swiss cheese. This workshop is both educational and engaging, providing a unique glimpse into the artisanal craft that has been perfected over centuries.

Whey (Foot) Bath

Following the workshop, it’s time to relax with a unique wellness activity: a whey footbath. Whey, the nutritious byproduct of cheesemaking, is known for its soothing and revitalizing properties which are on the whey back and have been making a comeback on the Swiss alpine meadows. As you soak your feet in the warm whey, you can enjoy the serene alpine surroundings, letting the natural beauty enhance your relaxation. This rejuvenating experience leaves you feeling refreshed and connected to the cheesemaking process in a uniquely personal way.

And if you dare take a full dip into the whey, it is very energizing, revitalizing, comfortable and healthy after all!!

Visit to the Cow Stables

No visit to a Swiss cheesefarm would be complete without meeting the cows, the true stars of the farm. You’ll visit the cow stables, where you can interact with these gentle animals, learning about their daily routines and the care they receive. Depending on the season, you might even have the chance to see them grazing in the lush fields. For those looking for a more intimate experience, cow cuddling offers a unique opportunity to bond with these affectionate creatures, providing both relaxation and a deeper appreciation for the source of Swiss cheese.

Magnificent Swiss Alpine Views

Throughout the day, you are constantly surrounded by the awe-inspiring beauty of the Swiss Alps. The panoramic views of snow-capped peaks, verdant valleys, and picturesque chalets create a stunning backdrop for every activity. Whether you’re enjoying breakfast, making cheese, or relaxing with a footbath, the majestic scenery enhances every moment, making your visit an unforgettable alpine adventure.

Visit to the Cheese Storage Cellars

One of the highlights of the farm visit is exploring the cheese storage cellars. Here, rows upon rows of aging cheeses rest on wooden shelves, each wheel maturing to develop its unique flavor profile. The cellar is a cool, dimly lit space where the air is filled with the rich, earthy aroma of aging cheese. As you walk through, the guide explains the aging process and how different conditions affect the taste and texture of the cheese. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the final stages of cheesemaking, where patience and careful monitoring are key to producing the perfect cheese.
