Switzerland for a Day: Trip to New Glarus Area (Full)
Every year thousands of visitors are drawn to the New Glarus area to enjoy the atmosphere that thrives here and nowhere else outside of Switzerland. Our day will start with a stop at the Roth Kase Cheese Factory in Monroe to tour the plant, learn about European-style cheeses, taste and purchase cheese. Next stop will be the Minhas Craft Brewery to learn about and sample the world class handcrafted beers and sodas and receive a special gift pack. We will then head to the New Glarus Hotel to enjoy a sumptuous lunch featuring a live demonstration and samples of a cheese fondue appetizer along with Swiss entrées Kaesechuechli, Wienerschnitzel and Swiss meatballs and side dishes of spatzli and roesti while enjoying Swiss musical entertainment during the meal. This will all be topped off by a homemade Swiss pastry. After lunch, we’ll be taken on a guided tour of the New Glarus area followed by free time to visit the quaint village shops of New Glarus.
