A nice little place in a very beautiful backdrop of the meadows with the cattle bells clinging. Could see the different stages of cheese making- both of the modern and vintage eras.Plenty of flowers around. Worth seeing.

Nice view of cows eating grasses. We joined the fresh cheese making course. Though it was in German, we loved watching the milk changing to cheese. The food in the restaurant was also good. The play ground was also enjoyable. Will definitely go again.

It is an amazing small town, great countryside traditional landscape, very fresh air. The cheese visit is quite good to understand how they make cheese in Emmental. The restaurant is very good, very typical Swiss food.
