Interesting tour of cheese making from start to finish. Workers conduct the tours depending on their language proficiencies. I've seen them take singles, but this is best for small groups. The tastings are fun. And, of course, you can buy in the shop.

This is THE place to learn about the history of this very special cheese. iPads are available to assist those wishing to know more and those who have difficulty with French and German labelling. Check on the website for information on tours.

Oh la la how I love this fromagerie. Their Tête de Moine is just excellent, I personally prefer the stronger version, accompanied with the local beer you will remember this delicacies for a long time...and probably you will come back.
