The king of Swiss cheese

This celebrated cheese takes its name from the valley (“Tal”) of the river Emme in the canton of Bern, where production of the cheese can be traced back to the 13th century. Emmentaler AOP is made from fresh untreated milk from cows fed on grass and hay but not silage. It takes about 12 litres of milk to make one kilo of cheese. The use of any additives is prohibited, as is the use of genetically modified ingredients.

More Hiking Suggestions

Die liebliche Aare-Landschaft zwischen Solothurn und Biel wird heute intensiv von der Landwirtschaft und vom Verkehr genutzt. Dennoch: Ein Spaziergang auf dem Aareuferweg lohnt sich immer, sei es wegen der Storchensiedlung in Altreu, den knapp über das Wasser pfeilenden Eisvögeln oder der Rückfahrt mit dem Aareschiff.
