A FOR "ABLER SPEZIALITÄTENVERKAUF" IN THE STALL IN MITTELBERG

There is a stable in Mittelberg - it looks a bit crooked at first glance. But cheese, honey, bacon and syrup stand upright next to the house specialties and cut a really good figure.

Do you know what ‘Heubergfeuer’(hayberg fire) is? – Tipp:  It's not an incense stick made of hay and it's tast remind you of berries. 😉

Berchtold's Bura Lädele

B FOR "BERCHTOLD'S BURA LÄDELE" IN RIEZLERN

Juniper ham, mountain salami, pumpkin cheese and delicious liqueur - the list of local products has no end. Fortunately, Berchtold's Bura Lädele has everything you are looking for! In the somewhat hidden bacon and cheese cellar you will also find a very special ‘Käsknöpfle’ cheese mixture – so that you can take a piece of Kleinwalsertaler culinary back home.

In Baad, the tasty goodies of the Walser Buura are sure to find. In the entrance of Café Baad-Grund, sausages and cheese attract the guests and once you are inside, the Schuster family enchants their guests with Swedish almond cake, Sachertorte, apple pie, walnut wreath and more... The cake is only served after the "Walser Buurabrotziit" "!

Tip: Learn a little Walser dialect, it is spoken here with pleasure.

They produce specialties from the region and sells them in the adjoining farm shop. If you want to know more about life on the farm, you can take a look behind the scenes on a tour of the farm.

H WIE "HOFLAADA" IN MITTELBERG

It is 200 years old - but its products have kept it pretty fresh ... the Hoflaada in Mittelberg you get homemade and freshly baked bread, and the milk comes from the cow directly to the table. Try the Zwergle cheese (it is not as sweet as its name)!

Tip:  In desperate need for tasty snacks after 10 p.m.? A small 24-hour service in the entrance will fulfill your needs!

B FOR BEEKEEPING

In the moring my grandma always used to ead a slice of bread with honey – in ancient Egypt it was even called “food of the gods”. Do you know what we are talking about? That’s right – honey! You can find various kinds of honey honey around every corner in Kleinwalsertal. A honey counter in Zwerwald, a honey shop in the Innerschwende & you can even ring the bell at beekeper’s Kurt Müller.

Tip: How does the honey get from the honeycomb into the jar? Pay a visit to beekeeper Kurt Müller - he will tell you.

K FOR "KÄSESTADL" IN HIRSCHEGG

Did you know that cheese used to be bartered? Today we prefer to enjoy the hay milk cheese from the Käsestadl for ourselves. Ideal souvenirs such as sausages, honey, oil, teas, liqueurs & many other delicacies are located behind the stable door - true to the motto "ORGANIC? FOR SURE!" Incidentally, Joachim Paul can tell you exactly what life in the Alps is like, because as a small shepherd he already had his goats under control at the age of eight.

M FOR "MITTELALP"

Milk becomes cheese, cheese becomes cheese soup – and this is exactly what you have to try when you browse the menu at your Bsuach uf dr Mittelalp (hike to the Mittelalp). After all, the milk comes from the cow in the meadow next door! A cheese like this has to mature for at least three months, with regular care and repositioning, before it is served on the Mittelalp. Nice craftsmanship, right?

Walser Buura Stand Räucherkammer Christian Beck

R FOR "RÄUCHERKAMMER"

It’s all about the sausage! About the raw sausage, to be precise. It can happen you can taste a hint of chili and chocolate in the sausages or that so-called ‘Räßkäs’ is combined with basil sausages. In the ‘Räucherkammer’ you will also find regional specialties, especially from the Walsa Buura. Have a look!

Tip: Do you need something special for lunch? Then try the Buura burger!

s´Hirscheck Laden

At Walser lunch time you can sunbathe on the terrace and enjoy the creamy cheesecake - or the spicy tarte flambée with bacon? Sausage and game meat from the region, cheese, whey products, fine vinegars and oils, spices, chocolates, jams, honey, nuts, tea, schnapps ... the s'Hirscheck in the heart of Hirschegg has everything! Come in and see for yourself1

Tip: Take an ice cream with you on the way to the next hiking destination!

Do you know Everest and Eumel? ... Well, they are goats and two of the hardest-working employees at the ‘Bio & Genuss Bauernhof Fritz’. The farm runs its own cheese dairy, and the cheese ripening is broadcasted live in the Xond farm shop! The ham is impressive, as the cow had a happy life on the meadow, and the chicken only lays eggs when it wants and not because it has to. You will notice it in the taste - we promise!

Tip: On Tuesdays, you can take an e-bike to the organic farm.
