Alpine culture, alpine cheese-making Diemtigtal

The Diemtigtal includes the largest alpine cheese-making area in Switzerland. The tasty mountain cheese is very much in demand. Many farms give visitors the chance to observe the cheese-making, for example the organic alpine dairy on the Schwarzenberg Alp in the Wiriehorn area. Here you can watch the cheese being made while you enjoy a "typical Swiss" brunch.

Augstbord cheese-makers – demonstration dairy

180 tonnes of raclette cheese are produced every year at the modern demonstration dairy in Turtmann. The milk comes from cows from the surrounding area. You can watch from a platform on the first floor to see how this is then turned into cheese – the master cheese-maker allows you to peep into the "Chessi" from there. If you book in advance, you can enjoy a raclette meal at the dairy.

Alpine Cheese Dairy Morteratsch

The Alpschaukäserei (cheese factory), with its stunning views of the Bernina Massif, is situated not far from the Morteratsch Glacier. Watch the cheesemaker at work as you sample his handiwork with your brunch or Zvieri (afternoon snack). The Sennerei Pontresina cheese dairy's Glacier Fondue counts as an insider's tip. Purchase their products in summer or winter.

Fifty-five years after the last cheese left the Alpine peak of Nova, the Alpine Dairy in Pontresina is producing once again cheese in the traditional way on this idyllic mountain.
