Cheese lovers should pay a visit to the Cheese Grotto (Käsegrotte) in Gstaad. This is where the Gstaad dairy stores more than 3,000 wheels of cheese, including some historic rarities. The Cheese Grotto can only be visited as part of a guided tour, during which visitors learn interesting facts about Bernese Hobelkäse AOC, its production and origin. A guided tour also includes a tasting with cheese platter, bread, white wine and water. Guided tours are available all year round by appointment.

Visitors descend about 25 metres via a steep staircase, where the grotto extends over several levels. A certain amount of surefootedness is therefore required here. Closed shoes and a jacket are also recommended. The temperature in the grotto is only 7 degrees (°C).

The cheese grotto is not located directly at the dairy in the centre of the village, but in the former water reservoir of the municipality. From the dairy in Gstaad, head in the direction of Wasserngrat. At the old Wasserngrat base station, turn right over the bridge and after about 800 metres take a sharp left turn towards Wasserngrat. After about 400 metres there is a signpost to the left to the Cheese Grotto.

By public transport
From Gstaad railway station, take the Postbus 182 - Gstaad-Turbach to the Bissenegg stop.

On foot
The cheese grotto can be reached on foot via the Gstaad-Bissen-Turbach hiking trail in approx. 1 to 1.5 hours.
