In December 2022 I visited Emmental Schaukäserei (Emmental Show Dairy / Emmental Cheese Factory) in scenic Emmental valley where Emmentaler – the iconic Swiss cheese with holes, is made. We went on a self-guided audiovisual tour called King’s Way (Königsweg) and learned about the history and process of Emmental valley cheese making.
