The main building of the Emmental open cheese dairy houses the modern production facilities where the famous Emmentaler AOC is made. Visitors can watch Emmental cheese being made through a large window while listening to information about the modern cheese making process through earphones. A variety of cheese types and Emmental products are available in the dairy shop.

Visitors can try out a variety of Emmental specialties and cheese dishes in the restaurant next door. The spacious garden terrace with its large children's playground offers guests the chance to enjoy typical Emmental hospitality, and relax in peace, contemplating the beautiful landscape of the Emmental.

The Küherstock, also known as Stöckli (residential building), was built in 1741. Here, visitors to the Emmental open cheese dairy can see how cheese was made in the Emmental in the 18th century. Cheese was still being produced here over an open fire. If you'd like some hands-on experience of making cheese, then you can book a cheese-making session. You'll be guided as you make your own cheese.

Here at the Emmental open cheese dairy you'll also find the so-called fiery chariot cheese dairy dating back to 1900. Today, it houses a bakery and pastry shop where you can buy Emmental delicacies, and next door souvenirs and gifts.

The open cheese dairy offers a rich and varied programme of activities. As well as cheese making, it also offers a tour through the history of agriculture in the Emmental, for example. Whatever you choose to do, you'll enjoy an eventful day at the open cheese dairy.
