Bregenzerwald Cheese Street
KäseStrasse (literally the CheeseRoute) is a marketing pool in which farmers, dairy farmers, innkeepers, craftspeople and merchants have joined to cultivate and preserve the small-scale landscape and the diversity of local produce. And by the way, giving credence to the travel magazine Merian, the Bregenzerwald is for cheese connoisseurs what Bordeaux is for wine lovers
Cheese is one of the main agricultural products of Vorarlberg.
Taste from more than 30 variations of cheese
Cheese is one of the main agricultural products of Vorarlberg. Mountain cheese or "Bergkäse" is a regional specialty, a protected trademark in the EU, and the basis for many traditional and new dishes. Vor arlberg has about 40 regional types of cheese.
Bregenzerwald Cheese Road - the range of offerings involving cheese includes dairies, "alp" dairies and private cheese makers, farms open to visitors, farmyard shops, "cheese inns" with special cheese dishes on their menus, butchers, bakers, and specialty shops with cheese products, the House of Cheese in Andelsbuch and Lingenau as well as traditional craft shops.
The Cheese Street is not a street in the truest sense of the word, but a cooperation of experts in different fields, a network of stations worth seeing in the entire Bregenzerwald region. The members of this network offer tasting sessions throughout the year and reveal some secrets on cheese production.
The Cheese Street which includes a great number of businesses is absolutely unique. The project was drawn up within the framework of an EU program for rural development (LEADER II). The project distinguishes itself through the integration of a great variety of professional categories. The businesses integrated in the Cheese Street network rang among the regional elite regarding cheese and regional specialties. Only those who meet the highest quality standards are allowed to become members of the Cheese Street. All the stations along the Cheese Streets are marked uniformly.
