Group combi package: Confectioner & cheesemaker

Cheese and chocolate are the pride of Switzerland. Spend the day learning how to make these typical Swiss products. Produce your own cheese in the Appenzell Folklore Museum and decorate your bespoke chocolate bar in Maestrani's Chocolarium.

In the 400-year-old alpine hut in the Appenzell Folklore Museum in Stein AR, you will make 4 wheels of Swiss Mutschli cheese on a wooden stove under the expert supervision of the cheesemaker. You will be involved not only in stirring the cheese, but also tasting the whey and fresh cheese. The Mutschli rounds are then carefully looked after throughout the 8-week maturing period, after which they are sent to you (alternatively you can come and pick them up).

In Maestrani's Chocolarium, you will discover the secret of how happiness gets into each chocolate bar. On the interactive Discovery Tour you will be accompanied by an expert guide and learn all about the fascinating process of chocolate production. Product sampling is encouraged! The culmination of the tour is the opportunity to decorate your own chocolate bar, which has been freshly moulded by the show chocolatier.

Please book the guided Discovery Tour well in advance (at least 2 weeks).
