Delve into the unique aspects of Swiss cheese history on a private tour to the Emmentaler cheese factory. The Swiss Emmentaler was named the world’s best cheese in 2014! The factory is 1 hour away from Lucerne, and the tour begins with the view of a scenic part of the Swiss countryside.
At the cheese factory, we will go on a 20-minute journey through underground rooms that present the history of the cheese factory and their production techniques in a fun way. You will discover the secrets behind the remarkable culinary delight and savory taste of the best Swiss cheeses! In this small factory where tradition and modernity come together, you will be able to taste 3 different types of Emmentaler, famous for its distinctive holes and see the real production of the finest Swiss alp cheese.
You won’t have to worry about anything! We’ll make the reservations, buy the tickets, pick up at your hotel, always making sure that your journey through the cheese factory happens at your own pace, without rushing.
At the end of the factory tour and store visit, you will get to have a typical fondue for lunch at their restaurant (optional).
