Alpine cheese dairy Surenen

Several families graze their animals on the Usser Äbnet during the summer. These farming families work together, delivering around 180,000 litres of milk to the Surenen dairy cooperative, where Florentin Spichtig produces Surener Alpkäse, mutschli, butter, yoghurt and cream. The dairy was remodelled in 2019. 

The Surenen dairy at the bottom of the Surenen Pass is situated at the end of the Engelberg valley and belongs to the canton of Uri. From Uri, it can be reached via the Surenen Pass and from Engelberg via the Fürenalp or Stäfeli. If you want to ascend the 300 metres of elevation without breaking a sweat, you can take the Stäfeli-Äbnet cable car.
