They may sound like the same thing, but they're not: Alpkäse (alp cheese) and Bergkäse (mountain cheese) are different! Alp cheese is made from raw milk on "alps" (with a lower case "a"), mountain pastures where cows spend the summer grazing fresh grass and alpine herbs. By contrast, mountain cheese can be produced all year round by dairies in mountain regions and is based on milk from cows that graze in the valleys and are fed hay in the winter.
