When does the most happen in Emmentaler AOP production?

Up to 8 loaves of Emmentaler AOP can be produced daily in two batches. Find out more about our daily production times here.

If production takes place in the morning and afternoon, observing the following processes is particularly recommended:

  • 10:10 Filling: The modern way of filling the curd into the press.
  • 13:00 Renneting: The active ingredient rennet is added to the milk and the milk becomes thick.
  • 13:40 Pre-cheesemaking: The curd is cut with the harp.
  • 15:10 Bottling: The modern way of putting the curds into the press.

The production is visible from the shop, at any time and free of charge.

How do the holes get in the cheese?

Of course, you will find the answer to this question with us ;-) e.g. on the King's Trail, at the fresh cheese workshop or during a guided tour of the show dairy.

What is the royal road?

The King's Trail is a self-guided, audiovisual tour all about Emmental cheese. The duration is about 30 minutes and you will be guided through several rooms inside the show dairy. The weather-independent experience offers the best infotainment for the whole family in German, English and French. Further information can be found here: King's Path

Can you see the cheese cellar?

Insight into the cheese cellars, where the large Emmentaler loaves are stored, you get during the Königsweg tour.

Is there cheese to taste and buy?

The largest cheese counter in the region awaits you in the store with around 100 different varieties of Emmentaler AOP and other Swiss cheeses. A tasting of different Emmentaler AOP ripeness is included in the king's walk. If you would like to try a particular cheese from the counter, please ask our staff in the store.

Does it have a restaurant in the show dairy?

Yes, directly in the main building with winter garden and besides a sunny outdoor terrace with self-service. The opening hours are from 9:00 to 17:00. We offer continuous hot cuisine until 16:30.

Do you also offer menus for guests with intolerances/allergies in the restaurant?

We are happy to cater to your individual wishes and diets. Please just contact us.

Are there public tours?

Every day at 14:00 the Public Fresh Cheese Workshop will be held. You can find all the information here: Cream Cheese
Guided tours are available by reservation for small and large groups: Guided tour

How much time should you allow for the visit?

The visit to the Emmental show dairy is very individual. If you take the royal road tour, look at the premises and store in the store, you will need about one to two hours. But you should also plan a break in the restaurant, because sooner or later you will get a craving for a fine Emmental dish ;-)
