Alpine cheese à discretion from Uri
The eight alpine cheese dairies are not all located on Engelberg soil, but belong to the neighbouring cantons of Uri and Nidwalden. The canton of Uri is strongly represented. With the alpine cheese dairies Blackenalp, Stäfeli, Steinäbnet and Surenen, four cheese dairies are located on Uri soil. Due to their diversity, all four cheese dairies are worth a visit.
Tips for the leisurely
For those who like to combine the beautiful with the cosy, here's a tip: not only do individual alpine dairy families offer opportunities to stop for a bite to eat, but there are also recommendable restaurants all along the trail. The Alpenrösli or Stäfeli is a good choice when visiting the Blackenalp, Surenen, Stäfeli or Steinäbnet alps. The traditional Flühmatt restaurant is a perfect stopover for hikers on the Brunniside with the Langenboden and Hüttismatt Alps. Incidentally, cheese can be bought quite conveniently in the monastery's cheese dairy - many alpine cheeses from the region are on sale there. And from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. you can even watch the cheese being made.
