take some Gruyeres-cheese, Greyerzer Käse home - Gruyères
lotos of different shops: take some Gruyeres-cheese, Greyerzer Käse home

Gruyeres is full of shops selling the famous local cheeses and they also have a lot of "accessoirs" - funny souvenirs like cows and T-shirts etc.

What to buy: Gruyeres-cheese, Greyerzer Käse is a very strong and aromatic mountain-cheese and its special recepee is used already since more than 1000 years. Gruyeres is also used in almost any recepee for cheese-fondue. Dont hesitate to eat the dark-brown skin of the cheese as well, that is not plastic like in some other kinds of cheese, but rather the dried-out skin, that was brushed with saltwater from time to time, while stored in order to ripe within at least 5 months.

What to pay: Gruyeres-cheese, Greyerzer Käse is not cheap bust it tastes great and is worth each swiss franc.
