Hi,

This place looks wonderful, and I was wondering if the people at the farm spoke english? Or atleast provided menus in english?

Can anyone share their experiences with me please.

Thank you

This cheese place (for a better name) is right behind the train station, and also close to Morteratsch glacier so that you can do both in an afternoon. Go on Wed. right before lunch, get their cheese platter - which is delicious. On Wed. they have a large group of Americans come - and they also had Alphorns there for entertainment during the meal. It was very enjoyable to listen to the music while eating. Then at 1:00 they have a demonstration on how cheese is made. (There is also one at 9:00 - if you want to have less of a crowd.) Then afterwards, cross over to the other side of the railroad and take a hike up to Morteratsch glacier which is a beauty! You will have had a wonderful meal, and educational experience and exercise in a beautiful location. The best experience of all!

The Alp-Schaukäserei Morteratsch, near the beginning of the Morterartsch glacier walk above Pontresina, is an amazing place. They actually make the Heutaler cheese here. It looks like a little cabin, with some tables and benches outside (great place to have lunch). But in that cabin, there is the greatest secret of this planet, if not the universe. There is a cauldron, just one, where the rich milk from some 50 'ladies of the alp meadow' (Wiesendamen, i.e. cows) of Bernina, at the entrance of the Val da Fain (=Heutal [valley of hay]) is turned into Heutaler cheese. The ladies of the alp eat grass of course, but enriched by herbs and flowers resulting in a cheese that is completely matchless in its fragrance and tang, and after a little while it starts tingling the tongue in a way that would be difficult to describe.

Wanted desperately to go to the place and eat their lovely cheese,based on other reviews on tripadvisor.But mistakenly thought that Pontresina was the station behind which it was situated.Actually Morteratsch is the station where it is,NOT PONTRESINA.It is an hour away by walking/20 min. by bus from Pontresina station.

The "Heutaler" of this cheesery is certainly one of the best Swiss hard cheeses. You can also buy it at the "Sennerei" in the midst of Pontresina.

We went for lunch the other day to the Alp Schaukäserei in Morteratsch. It is always a nice place to go on a sunny day. It is a good place to go with the family, children and dogs have a good time there. We had two very generous plates of mixed cheese and hams which were excellent. Also the bread was fresh and so tasty. we had to ask for plates for us which did not come as expected. Service was nice and the toilets have just be renovated and are really well done. One can also stay and look how they make cheese but we came just in between two presentations.

We were there mainly for the cheese-making demo for our kids.
While waiting for our kids, we had a assorted cheese plate with preserved meats, breads and fruits for 1 - 2 people. It costs 18 CHF. It was really full for 2 adults. A glass of wine costed 6 CHF, well recommended regional red wine from the owner.
Cheese making demo is held twice every day in summer at 09:45 am & 13:45. It is produced in a traditional way - on an burning fire with woods. The kids can have a really close ( < 1 m) look into how cheese is make. They can also participate; i.e.; stirring, during the process. Furthermore, they are offered to taste the „Molke“ and also cheese before fermentation. We did offer to visit the cheese storage after the demo.
Cheese Fondue also very recommended. We ordered a kids Fondue for 2 pax after their 1.5 hour cheese making session. It fed 2 adults & 2 kids well. 44 CHF including drinks.
We also bought a Rocket ice cream for 1 CHF each. I consider this price is unbeatable as this is the cheapest price u can get in Switzerland. The other hotel restaurant/ KIOSK at the adjacent of Morteratsch train station sells the same type of ice cream with the price of CHF 1,50, which is 50 % more.
Overall I rate our experience here as 5 star. We all enjoyed our day here very much!
Thumb up!!!
