Kaltbach Cheese Cave

A one-hour drive from Zürich, near Lucerne, lies the Kaltbach Cave. The cave itself was shaped an estimated 22 million years ago; its one-of-a kind environment is what enables Kaltbach cheese to mature in a very unique manner. Today, the company produces Gruyère, Emmental, Gouda and the eponymous Kaltbach cheese. Take a tour of the cave, learn about the production and storage of the cheese and let yourself be enticed to a tasting of different kinds of the celebrated Swiss delicacy.
