Morteratsch Alpine cheese dairy


60 years after the last cheese left the Alpine peak of Nova, the Alpine Dairy in Pontresina is producing once again cheese in the traditional way on this idyllic mountain. The Alpschaukäserei (cheese factory), with its stunning views of the Bernina Massif, is situated not far from the Morteratsch Glacier. Watch the cheesemaker at work as you sample his handiwork with your brunch or Zvieri (afternoon snack). The Sennerei Pontresina cheese dairy's Glacier Fondue counts as an insider's tip. Purchase their products in summer or winter.
You will have the opportunity to experience the ancient cheese-making traditions in the Alpine Dairy of Morteratsch and to sample the products during a brunch or lunch. Sale of cheese products and restaurant service are also available.
