Sweet inspiration at Lindt’s Home of ChocolateKilchberg, Switzerland
Imagine this... You look up, far into the air and there, cascading down from an oversized whisk, is a nine-metre-tall chocolate fountain. If you’re anything like us, you just want to dive right in, but we really don’t recommend it lest it leads to time spent in a Swiss jail. This is the world’s largest choc waterfall and the opening salvo for guests visiting Lindt Home of Chocolate.
Opened by none other than Swiss legend and Lindt ambassador Roger Federer in September 2020, this is part production plant and part museum all packaged in an impressive architectural display. Watch as the company’s master chocolatiers do their thing in the research laboratory or tour the exhibition that travels from Ghana, where the cocoa beans are grown, right through every stage of chocolate production. There’s even a chance to pour your own chocolate creation.
And what sort of chocolate museum would it be if there wasn’t a tasting room? You can indulge in a sample or two, before taking a load off in the Lindt Cafe or giving your credit card a bashing at the world’s largest Lindt store. You might need some extra room in your suitcase to get all your purchases home again.
