Discover all the new attractions that the Show Dairy has to offer. Fresh cheese is made every day at 14:00, the perfect chance for you to find out first-hand how milk is transformed into cheese. Alternatively, you can discover the four maturities of cheese with an audio guide tour. And every day at 15:15, you can taste various Emmental cheeses that are at different levels of maturity. The day's highlight is at 16:00 when an Emmentaler AOP is pulled from the pail by hand, accompanied by a live commentary.
