Cheese Factory Engelberg


Visit Switzerland's only cheese factory within a Monastery.
The modern achitecture of the cheese factory accents the historical setting in a breathtaking manner.

Enjoy our specialities including cheese Fondue and Raclette throughout the whole year in our cosy Restaurant. Meanwhile you watch the cheese maker at work producing cheese specialities as the famous "Engelberger Klosterglocke".

Find a wide array of homemade and regionally produced cheeses at our shop. For treats, choose between homemade goodies from farmer's wives within the region and selected articles with contemporary motifs.

What's unique about us:

  • The only Swiss Cheese Factory in a Monastery
  • Continous cheese production throughout the day (9am - 3.30pm) in four production vats and 40 minutes-intervals
  • A view of the Cheese Factory from the Restaurant
