Mountains, cows, cheese, and chocolate. Is this the first thing you think of when you think of Switzerland? Probably Switzerland has a lot more to offer, something we’ll have to find out over the next months. Of course, you can’t leave this country without tasting Swiss chocolate, but even more fun is a visit to the Lindt Home of Chocolate museum.
Lindt chocolate fountain
“Experience the interactive world of chocolate for young and old. Visit our Lindt Home of Chocolate, where the biggest Lindt Chocolate Shop (500 m2) and the spectacular Lindt chocolate fountain are waiting for you, as well as an interactive chocolate tour all about the Swiss cultural heritage of chocolate. Dive into the world of chocolate and experience something really special.”
At the moment, it is only possible to buy your tickets for the Lindt museum online. Due to corona rules, there is a maximum number of people allowed, so be on time to buy your tickets because it will sell out in no time. A ticket costs 15 francs, and with this, you can stay in the museum
as long as you want and eat as much chocolate as you want! We started the afternoon with a visit to the largest Lindt Shop in the world, where you can design your own chocolate bar, with all kinds of delicious toppings. You can also find all the flavors available and even Lindt vegan chocolate bars.

After this, it was time to enter the museum. Upon entering, the first thing you notice is the 9-meter-high chocolate fountain where 1 kilo of chocolate flows through per second! A great introduction, and the rest of the museum did not disappoint either. We were really amazed at how fun and interactive this museum was. Not only is this fun for kids, but also adults learn a lot about the different brands and chocolate in general. Plus, it’s really worth using the headphones and listening to the various stories about the history, marketing, and future of chocolate. Of course, you sense that there must come a moment when you actually get to put your senses to work, like a true Lindt Master Chocolatier does every day. And luckily, that moment came sooner than expected!
