«Grimmi» Alpine Farm

Brunch and alpine cheese dairy tour

Short facts

  • Schwenden im Diemtigtal
Enjoy a hearty alpine brunch high up on the «Grimmi» alpine farm or look over the shoulders of the alpine dairyman as he makes the cheese.
On the «Grimmi» alpin farm, the Erb family makes «Mutsch» (full-fat semi-hard cheese made from raw milk) and alpine cheese every morning from 9 am to 12 pm. On request, you can be present and have the cheese-making processes explained to you in detail. As a souvenir for those at home, you can buy the cheese directly from the farm. Tours of the alpine cheese dairy are possible from the end of June to mid-September by appointment. We recommend that you enquire well in advance.

On request, the Erb family serves rich brunches with their products directly from the alpin farm. They taste even better there than at home. A unique culinary experience is the 1 August brunch - book early!

By the way: You can reach  «Grimmi» alpin farm on the > Grimmiwasser panoramic mountain hike. A short detour to the red, ferruginous springs is well worth it.
