Cheese Trail Routes

The Cheese Route through the Bregenzerwald in Vorarlberg is a must for cheese lovers. The route is the ideal way to explore this lovingly tended rural landscape and its close ties to cheese making: from dairy farms to specialty cheese inns and from alpine pastures to milkmaids. The route also takes in many of the most memorable sights of the region, such as the fine old traditional buildings, the deeply rooted crafts traditions and its folklore.
