Bregenzerwald

Bregenzerwald on the map
The Cheese Trail is a unique Bregenzerwald attraction. It isn’t a street or a road in the usual sense, but rather a union of experts from various disciplines. Throughout the whole year, the members organise events, invite people to tasting sessions, and initiate guests into the secrets of cheese production in the Vorarlberg region.
 

Discovery for all senses

Farmers, alpine dairymen, cheese-makers, restaurants, inns, museums, railways and tourist organisations all belong to the Cheese Trail network. The thing that unites all 160 partners is their dedication to the cultivation and the maintenance of culinary delights and regional culture. Stations on the trail include the modern cheese cellar in Lingenau, where several thousand blocks of cheese are left to mature; the Käsehaus in Andelsbuch, open seven days a week and selling the entire range of delicacies from the Bregenzerwald; and the alpine dairy school in Egg where you can make your own cheese.
 

The finest quality

One of the special features of the Cheese Trail is the integration of such a variety of occupational groups. The businesses taking part in the project must fulfil the required quality criteria such as adherence to strict ecological regulations, product range and minimum assortment before they are allowed to become members. What's more, stations along the route are equipped with uniform signposts, making it easy for those new to the region to follow.
