As many people spent the summer on ‘staycation’ due to covid-19, an idea ocurred to me. Where would Danes find an overview of all cheese experiences worth visiting in Denmark? Such a thing didn’t exist – and therefore I created the #CheeseTrail2020.
New map leads the way
My first thought about cheese experiences went to the dairies. Many have small shops open to the public or even cafés where you can enjoy their cheeses. But what about cheese shops and farm shops? And what about the cozy places that serve a sublime cheese experience?
As mentioned, that map didn’t exist, so I decided to make it myself 🙂 With the help of the cheese network, the map now contains more than 140 places (dairies, cheese shops, farm shops, restaurants and sights). The card is never finished. New places will come if I meet some myself – or others tip me.
You can see the map right here. (Right now it’s in Danish, but I’m sure you’ll get the idea). If your way passes Denmark, you can save the link and use it along the way to check out local cheese experiences – and get driving directions.
Have an enriching talk and a good bite
If you like to have a chat with the people who make the cheese, sell the cheese or serve the cheese, then there is plenty of opportunity for that (as long as you avoid the most busy time). Remember to ask, wonder and be curious about their story!
Never ending process
This is the Danish #CheeseTrail2020 – and so far (mid August) the map has been seen 6.000 times and still counting.
I’m now working on a version 2.0 for next year. Larger reach, more fun and more action based.
Please inspire me: Do you know other cheese trails around the world? Please write a comment – I will really appreciate it. Thanks.
HI Camilla! Sounds like you’re having summer fun. Here is a link to a cheese trail in North Carolina in the US. http://nccheesetrail.com/ best regards, Alyce Birchenough
Thank you very much, Alyce! Are you on the cheese trail?
It’s great to see what others have already discovered.
Hope everything is fine with you!
