Visit to the Napf-Chäsi cheesemakers in Luthern

Look behind the scenes at the Napf-Chäsi cheese factory, and get an insight into the cheesemaker’s craft.

Using fine Alpine milk, approximately 20 varieties of cheese and a wide range of dairy products are produced. On a tour of the cheese-making plant, you will learn a number of interesting facts about the operations and be introduced to the secrets of cheese production. Needless to say, you’ll also get the opportunity to sample the cheese. It’s accompanied by Süssmost (unfermented fruit juice), “Luther” water and fresh bread. Many specialities and regional products are available directly from the cheese shop.
