Situated in the very centre, near the alpine pastures and at the foot of the Château de Gruyères, La Maison du Gruyère invites you to discover the king of the cheese : Le Gruyère AOP. Come and experience La Maison du Gruyère with your family, in a group or on your own and delve into the secrets of the making of Le Gruyère.
The interactive exhibition “Gruyère AOP, a journey to the heart of the senses” is like a trip in the world from our cheese. The cheesemaking is to discover from the gallery, 2 to 4 times a day. A headset is given to you and the audio information is available in thirteen languages : English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese as well as Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese and Russian. Written translations also available Korean, Dutch, Finnish, Hebrew, Persian, Romanian and Turkish.
