La Maison Du Gruyere, Gruyeres Reviews - Write a Review
La Maison du Gruyere was a stop that was included in the Golden Pass Chocolate train tour. I have a feeling no one really comes here, aside from tour groups, because it's kind of terrible. It was way too crowded. I'm not sure if it was because they didn't anticipate that many tour groups coming in that day, but there was very little room to walk. Plus, the place is small. It felt like we were being herded like cattle - especially since you basically just walk along a wall with illustrations/pictures, while listening to an audio guide. And you should definitely take the audio guide. Otherwise, you will have absolutely no idea what is going on. The only two things I liked about this was the pack of cheese (three different ages of Gruyere) they give you at the beginning of the tour, and the cheese room, where you get to get a glimpse of the rooms where they store the cheese wheels.
The cheese factory is a great place to visit. The self-guided audio tour engaged multiple senses and learning styles, and had a bit of humour tossed in to keep it engaging. You can watch the workers at certain times of the day, though they also show video of the different stages of cheesemaking as well. We also enjoyed the restaurant attached to the factory.
The place is nice and it's not so big. Is interesting to see how they produce the cheese and see the cave. The tiket fare is 7 Swiss franc for adult, is included an audio guide and a small package with three different types of Gruyere. The staff is really friendly. There is also a restaurant and a shop. If you are there I suggest to visit also the village of Gruyere. The village is a just few kilometres from the factory and it is really lovely
Good insight in the production of Gruyère cheese. Try to be there in the morning when they run several batches in parallel (at different phases), if you come later there's only 1 batch and the eating b time between the "interesting" moments of the production process are longer.
Nice that they give some cheese for free to taste. The interactive tour could be better. One cannot watch all the cheese production process, because it would take several hours
