There is a self-paced tour that you can do, with sound-sets (a range of languages available). The tour doesn't take long but is quite well done and informative. There is also a shop where you can purchase souvenirs, cheese, wine etc... Parking was a challenge...More

Visited local cheese factory. Had a educational audio tour. Saw how they make and compressed huge cheese blocks. The cheese are kept in racked with cold water dripping over them. Received sample cheese to eat. Nice.

First of all - it's free entrance with a Swiss Pass. It's a short self paced tour with handheld listening device for explanations. They give you a sampling of cheese at the entrance which we ate with a glass of wine at the attached restaurant....More

The cheese factory is a fun, educational experience (and free with a Swiss Rail Pass). Learned all about the local climate and history of the area and why it is so good for producing the milk to make this kind of cheese. However, the factory...More

They show parts of the processing, but I honestly expected more. If you're in the area anyway, might as well visit. But, definitely not worth traveling 2 hours from Geneva, like we did. We arrived at the ticket booth at 12. The lady at the...More

So with first time visiting a cheese factory, I didn't know what to expect. Get the combined ticket with the Castle makes the trip to Gruyeres worth the visit. You must make the cheese factory tour between 12:30 to 14:30 I recall to see the...More

The museum was small but the idea was good. Swiss people are so facinated about their cheeseen. I became a Gruyere cheese lover. Not far away from Fribourg.
