This is the first part of a mini-Swiss tour we took the Johnsons on – they call it Urs Tours. We started here in the village of Stein.
We brought them to this cheese factory to find out the secrets of Swiss cheese. A specialty cheese, Appenzeller, is made here.
Lots of cheese. Lots and lots and lots of cheese.
We watched a movie about the special traditions of this area which are maintained to this day. And learned the secret of this spicy cheese. Well, not all of it. The actual spice mix is top secret.
And who doesn’t love running around in a hamster wheel? A few dizzy kids tumbled out of there.
