Alp Chäserenholz is just a few minutes’ walk down from Rigi Kulm, in a fabulous location with a stunning view
of the Schwyz Alps right through to Central Switzerland.
The cheese dairy has also played a major role here for the last four years. Every summer the Alpine herdsman
Franz-Toni Kennel produces up to 12,000 kilograms of cheese in his dairy. The highly prized milk required for
the production of cheese, butter and yoghurt is provided by 33 cows in the nearby barn, as well as 17 cows
from other milk suppliers on the mountain.
Every day production starts early in the morning and continues until midday. Up to 15 different types of
cheese are produced each year on Alp Chäserenholz. The cheese is sold locally on the mountain and visitors
can also look forward to a selection of delicious cheese dishes (raclette, fondue and sandwiches), which are
likewise made using the local cheese.
Once the train arrives at Rigi Kulm station walk about 5 minutes in the same direction, afterwards, turn right
and follow the signs “Alp Chäserenholz”. After about 15 minutes, you will reach the first farming place and
continue for a further 5 minutes untuil you reach the farming place where the Fondue awaits!
