Engelberg Alpine Cheese Trail For cheese and mountain lovers everywhere

Breathe in the fresh mountain air, the smell of alpine flowers and cattle, you are in Heidi heaven.
This new Alpine Cheese Trail (Alpkäse-Trail) takes you to eight Alpine dairies in Engelberg, where you will try a range of unique Alpine cheeses.
 
Only cheese made from the milk of cows, sheep or goats that graze on Alpine meadows can be called "Alpkäse". The cheese also has to be produced at an Alpine summer farm, usually following traditional, old-school methods.
 

Why this is an amazing experience?
