Fodor's Review

Modern cheese-making methods are demonstrated at the Schaukäserei, a combination of a factory and a museum. Cheese is made until 4. A self-guided tour (free with the Appenzell Card) reveals the history of the local cheese, and a movie about the region is a surefire way to whet your appetite. The attached restaurant is one of the best places to sample some tradtional dishes made with Appenzeller cheese, including a silky cheese soup, gooey fondues and raclettes, and a savory chääsflade (cheese pie).
