Curious tourists will be interested in walking along the glass-enclosed gallery and watch skilled cheese-makers involved in cooking precious delicacies. There is also a great tasting room, where you can taste a variety of cheeses, and then buy your favorite in the local store. It’s recommended to taste cheese with a good glass of Austrian wine, but locals prefer other national drink - schnapps.
It is also an important symbol of the region; there are dozens of small factories in Tirol that produce schnapps. It is made of various fruits; pear, apple and plum schnapps are the most common. Owners of local distilleries willingly welcome travelers and arrange interesting excursions for them, which are also sure to include tasting of drinks. The common souvenir for foreign visitors is Meisterwurz schnapps flavoured with medicinal herbs and pine nuts.
