A journey of discovery for the senses
The KäseStrasse Bregenzerwald (Cheese Route) is a collaborative initiative of farmers, Alpine dairies, cheesemakers, inns and innkeepers specialising in cheese, museums & cable cars, as well as tourism operations and partners representing local craftsmanship and trade. What all 180 partners within the KäseStrasse Bregenzerwald network have in common is the retention and upkeep of a true gourmet speciality of regional culture. Further stations of the KäseStrasse Bregenzerwald include, e.g.: the modern Käsekeller in Lingenau, a cheese cellar where thousands of wheels of mountain cheese are maturing; the Käsehaus in Andelsbuch which is open seven days a week and offers a comprehensive range of Bregenzerwald cheeses and gourmet specialties for sale; and the Sennschule Alpine dairy school in Egg where guests can produce their own cream cheese during a special cheese-making course.
