Marbach Foodie Tour

The somewhat different discovery tour, during which you can also indulge your palate.

From the valley station of the Marbachegg gondola lift, an easy walk along the path through the “Bühl” part of the village leads to the Lourdes Grotto, an oasis of tranquillity. The path continues alongside the Steiglenbach brook to the Marbach Mountain Cheese Dairy. Alongside a delicious aperitif from the cheese cellar, you will receive insights into how the different cheese varieties are made using cow’s and buffalo’s milk. Thus replete, the journey continues along the idyllic Schonbach brook and on to the Hotel Sporting. Once arrived, you can indulge in an “authentic Entlebuch” lunch followed by a ride in the panoramic gondola lift up to Marbach’s very own sun terrace – the Marbachegg. Here you can enjoy a delicious dessert while taking in the splendid views. The excursion is rounded off with a walk back to the starting point, or a ride on the gondola lift back down into the valley.
