Exploring Swiss Cheesemaking at the Emmental Show Dairy
If you love Swiss cheese, the Emmental Show Dairy in Affoltern makes for an interesting stop, especially if you're riding the Emmental Heart Route, one of Switzerland's most popular e-biking itineraries. At the dairy you can see the famous Emmentaler cheese being made; for more information, pick up a self-guided tour brochure (available in English and German). German speakers can also join a daily cheesemaking activity or take a guided tour on weekends. (Tours and cheesemaking in other languages, including English, are only available for groups with advance bookings). The restaurant onsite serves a menu of Swiss specialties and is a good place to stop for lunch, or you can buy freshly made snacks at the cheese shop and bakery on the premises and enjoy a picnic instead.
