Dairies and farms

The Montafon holiday region is known for producing delicious dairy products that have become an integral part of the menu. There is hardly anything nicer than getting up in the morning, letting your gaze wander over the green mountain meadow panorama and drinking a glass of milk from the happy cows in the meadow. Would you like to enjoy fresh dairy products that were produced directly on the alp? Then you shouldn’t hesitate to pay a visit to the alpine dairies in the Montafon. You have probably already heard of the Montafoner “Sura Kees”. It tastes similar to mild cream cheese, but becomes stronger the longer it is left to stand. Here you can see how this specialty is made.

Sennerei Alpe Nova & Alpenwelt Nova

Would you like to know how to spend a perfect hiking day? Of course, by combining it on the Alpe Nova with a trip to the alpine dairy. The hike from the mountain station of the Garfrescha Bahn, over the Gantakopf to Alpe Nova is a recommendable experience. The dairyman couple Andrea and Andreas will be happy to give you an insight into their everyday life in the alpine dairy.

At Alpenwelt Nova you can explore a lot more. There is the opportunity to playfully discover the cow at various learning stations. For example, at the thematically adapted children’s sand playground or at the milk can memory. In addition to the cow, you can also learn a lot about the sheep, flowers, mountains and bees.

At Käsehaus Montafon there is a dairy school where you can learn from cheese experts every Saturday what has to be taken into account when making cheese. Get ready for an approximately 2-hour course that is packed with knowledge, excitement and, above all, fun. You will meet nice people and the best thing about the course: the delicious farmer’s buffet with regional and tasty delicacies. You can then take the homemade cheese with you in a practical transport box.

Visit farm animals

Farms and cultural landscapes make up the valley and have become indispensable. Get a glimpse of the farms and learn how the food that humans eat every day is made. Great value is placed on regional products here.
It is particularly great to be able to spend several days on the farm, which is often a unique experience for children too.
