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.

Cheese making in a beautifully panoramic spot

The Fluonalp is one of the loveliest of the Giswil Alps and the cows that graze here enjoy not only magnificent views, but a copious supply of the most delicious herbs. No wonder the cheese made from their milk is so remarkable. Nor is the recipe a secret. Anyone who wants to can visit the dairy and make their own cheese. What’s more, they can pick it up again a year later (the cheeses weigh between 11 and 13 kg), by which time it will have matured to perfection.

On the Fluonalp, one of the loveliest Giswil Alps, cows not only have sweeping views but the pick of delicious herbs.
