A day at the dairy

Just imagine being able to make your own soft cheese in a huge copper kettle over an open fire! This is what you can do at Hemishofen, an organic farm where you can learn how to lend your cheese its own special flavour and how to refine it with herbs. You can also churn your own butter and sample it on freshly made bread. And those wanting something to wash it down with can help themselves to a glass of fresh milk by milking one of the farm’s many forbearing cows!

Gourmet path in the Montreux-Vevey region

Why not savour a taste of the culinary specialities of the Montreux-Vevey region as well as the sights? On commencing the excursion in Vevey, climb aboard the train direction Pléiades and enjoy a cheese slice as a first if you like. The hike to follow leads along the Pleiades ridge to the Lac-des Joncs lake, where you can now appease physical effort with small cold meats and cheese platter. Last leg of this tasteful hike is the downhill descent to Les Paccots, where a delicious meringue with whipped cream further sweetens a day well spent.

Making cheese in Ticino

A bit of Ticino to take home with you! At the Gottardo dairy in Airolo, guests can use the wonderful milk produced by cows in the San Gottardo region to make their own cheese. An experienced cheese maker tells them what to do and after each freshly made cheese has aged sufficiently to produce a fine mature cheese, it is sent back home to the one who made it as a reminder of an unforgettable holiday in Ticino.

The Gotthard Exhibition Cheese Dairy also features a restaurant and a store.
