That’s not without good reason: Sälmi’s Alpine sbrinz (AOP) is more delicious than any made down in the valley thanks to the assortment of herbs that the cows eat. This special cheese has won many prizes and is even more famous than Sälmi himself.
Alpine cheese dairy Gerschnialp
Sälmi Töngi is the celebrity among Engelberg’s cheesemakers, having appeared in many Swiss newspaper articles and TV reports.
Sälmi has been making Alpine cheese up on the Gerschnialp for over 40 years – from 300,000 kilos of cow’s milk and 30,000 kilos of goat’s milk that he receives from surrounding Alpine farms. His dairy is situated in an idyllic location beneath the Titlis, 1,300 metres above sea level, and can be conveniently reached either on the traditional funicular railway from Engelberg or via a pleasant stroll through the woods.
