Crossing the border to the Emmental valley, you reach the Kambly Experience.

Learn about the origins of Switzerland's best-known premium biscuit brand and watch the master confectioners at work. Indulge in unique flavours and try as many biscuits of the tantalizing variety as you like! Continue through typical Bernese backcountry towards the Swiss capital Bern. Here you will take time for an informative walk through the charming Old Town, a designated UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. Marvel at the late Gothic Cathedral (Münster), stroll under the characteristic arcades to the clock tower (Zytglogge) and pay a visit to the Parliament building overlooking the beautiful Aare River.

Enjoy leisure time for lunch and some souvenir shopping before continuing through fascinating rural landscapes and their rich heritage. See grazing cows on green hills producing the best milk, the principal ingredient for the world-famous Emmentaler cheese. Stop at the show dairy right on time for the highlight of the day! Through the window, you can watch the cheese masters taking out the fresh cheese from the pot by hand. Afterwards, you learn about the traditional production of an Emmentaler AOP during the cheese tasting.
Continue through the fascinating Swiss rural landscape with its rich heritage. The impressively vast roofs shelter the typical Emmental farmhouses, where you will stop at an Emmentaler dairy show for the highlight of the day. Tour the dairy show on the audio-visual "King's Way" and learn more about the history of the world's most famous cheese. Marvel at the gigantic wheels of cheese in the impressive cellar before indulging your senses during a cheese tasting staying only an arm's length away from the master cheesemaker's workplace. Continue to a nearby dairy farm and see grazing cows on green hills producing high-quality milk, the main ingredient of the world-famous Emmentaler cheese.
