Summer in Parpan

The ground-breaking ceremony for the new Parpan cheese dairy was held in autumn 2015. In the winter months, a dairy with glass fronts and an open and spacious auditorium was built in the old and traditional stables of the Plantahof Alp. Visitors are offered the opportunity to look over the shoulders of the Senn, to gain exciting insights into the world of Alpine cheese and to taste the final product.

Approximately 230,000 liters of milk from the Alps Stätz, Kötzigerberg and Plantahof are brought together each year in the alpine dairy Parpan. The processing of alpmilch locally not only creates local jobs but also enables the direct sale of Alpine cheese to guests and locals.

Visit the show dairy individually during the Alps season in summer (mid-May to mid-October) daily from 8.00 am to 9.00 pm.
