You’ll find views of the Saane Valley from the picture-perfect medieval town, then learn about the town’s famous cheese at your first stop of the day, a local cheese factory. Follow the history and production of Gruyère cheese from its origins to the modern day on a tour, followed by a cheese tasting.
