About Cheese Factory Volendam, Volendam

The Dutch have a firm love affair with their cheese. This museum and factory exhibits the history, evolution and current production methods of Dutch cheese. There are three sections to the tour:

  • Museum: Located in the basement, this room explores the discovery of cheese 6000 years ago, and traditional cheese making methods through historical artefacts and photographs.
  • Factory: An expert will take you through the whole sequence of steps by which tonnes of milk are daily processed into cheese of different flavours - lactic acid, curd stage, brine bath and ripening.
  • Tasting: After an explanation of the ripening process, you will learn to identify between different scents, flavours and structures of cheese.

There's also a movie on cheese making that runs on a loop. The staff is super friendly. And at the end of it all, you can of course by your own cheese before you leave.

Cheese Factory Volendam, Volendam Reviews

  • Cheeese!! They show how they make cheese and you get to taste all of them. Go there with a travel group or you may have to pay for entrance if your going on your own. Their goat cheese is the best.

  • The Volendam Cheese Factory is set in a spectacularly charming coastal town. The tour is a cool experience and there are a wide variety of freshly made cheeses to sample and purchase. In my tour of the Netherlands this was certainly one of the highlights! I highly recommend going to Volendam and taking the time to stroll through the cheese factory!

  • Very nice place where you can look the history of this cheese factory. You can buy good Netherland cheese after your visit on the museum and the factory. I suggest this place.

  • A very enjoyable demonstration on cheese making and the shop offered a large selection of their cheeses. Free samples and the price for a round was not bad!

  • We were on a guided tour, enjoyed a glass of wine and tasting of various cheeses. Bought some to take back to Australia but making enquiries about how to get more. Very interesting, great cheese and friendly staff.
