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.

The Diemtigtal valley is celebrated for its magnificent rural dwellings, and you can see some of the finest along the marked Diemtigtal House Trail. The details are particularly impressive: intricate carving, delicate paintings and elaborate compositions of form and colour that adorn the wooden façades underneath the massive roofs.
