More about Cheese

Cheese production in the Netherlands became more popular in the Middle Ages as the wet landscape lent itself to cattle. Today, the Netherlands is one of the largest cheese producers in Europe. Certainly, youve heard of Gouda or Edam cheese.

Our half-day trip is all about cheese. Well visit Edam with the famous cheese weigh house from 1778.
The place where farmers sold their cheese during the Golden Age.


The Highlight of our Cheese tour is The Story of Edam Cheese by Henri Willig
in Edam.

An audio tour will tell you everything about the history of Edam cheese ánd
one of the oldest buildings in Edam.

After our tour in Edam, we will go to the Jacobs.
Hoeve cheese farm for a behind-the-scenes farm visit. Watch the cheesemaking
process, visit the warehouse, meet the cutest Jersey cows and taste cheese.
