August 1 to December 31, 2021

We are delighted to present you with your official Cheeses from Switzerland Passport. You are cordially invited to explore the fantastic variety of the Swiss cheese landscape and take a trip through our wonderful country of Switzerland. The Cheeses from Switzerland Passport accompanies you on this journey and entitles you to some very special offers at the show dairies listed here. Visit four of the five show cheese dairies to take part in the big competition. There are five fantastic prizes to be won in the respective regions.

But there’s more! The show cheese dairies are embedded in the typical landscapes of the famous Swiss cheese varieties that are just waiting to be explored by you. There is so much to discover! You’re sure to notice similarities, but also the unique features of each, be they of a scenic or cultural nature. Find out why the cheeses that are produced in the various regions using the same raw material all taste so different.

The show cheese dairies are all on the route of the Grand Tour of Switzerland. Thanks to the Grand Tour of Switzerland, the journey to and from the show cheese dairies is a highlight in itself. Including spectacular views of lush green meadows where cows graze contentedly!
