Culinary adventure on the alps, Diemtigtal

Could you farm high up in the Alps? Book an experience day and find out. There are three Alps to choose from. In the Diemtigtal nature park, the mountain pastures are still farmed in the traditional way, and you can join in. You’ll help with the cows, milking or making cheese. And when the day’s work is done, you can break bread with us – we’ll sample the cheese and other tasty alpine produce.

Three other Alps offer unforgettable experiences when the livestock graze the mountain pastures between mid-June and mid-September. You can stay overnight, eat there and experience the unique character of each environment. It’s possible to combine individual ‘alpine farming experience’ stays into a multi-day hike. 

Please note: Our hosts all speak German, and a few speak a little English or French. We therefore recommend that, to truly benefit from this unique cultural exchange, you should speak at least basic German.
