DEMONSTRATION OF ARTISAN CHEESE MAKING
The Restaurant Le Chalet makes its own cheese, "Le Chalet Bio". Dressed in traditional costume, the cheesemaker transforms about 200 litres of organic milk into a hard cheese right in front of your eyes. You can lend a hand in this truly authentic process that takes place over an open wood fire, just like in the alpine chalets. The freshly produced cheese can be tasted at the end of the demonstration.
RESTAURANT LE CHALET
Warm, cosy and thoroughly typical, Le Chalet welcomes you into its rustic setting. An excellent organic cheese fondue will be waiting for you there. And there's the opportunity to buy delicious local products and regional souvenirs in their boutique. Upstairs, there's a model of our trains and the landscape they travel through that will appeal to young and old.
The Espace Ballon, Mecca of hot air balloon, invite you to a journey from the very first days in history to the greatest performances of our days. The first balloon flight around the world with Brian Jones and Bertrand Piccard and more to be discovered in tremendous surroundings. Sky’s the limit and heaven can’t wait... to meet you there...
