This museum is very small but full of history! The woman in the front of the shop was very personable and happy to share info about the products. It’s right in the center of Einsiedeln and only takes a short visit so definitely worth it.

We visited the museum of the golden apple bakery in Einsiedeln. The owner (9th Generation!) showed us interesting things and we even had a chance to try the products and taste the Schnaps. A nice hour in a small village with a famous cloister.

Interesting little museum, free to enter (they hope you will buy some of the produce). All exhibits and explanations in German, so struggled to get all the meaning, plus some of the audio visual exhibits were not working - but for free, cannot complain
