Chocolate in and around Zurich
– Part 1 Lindt
Lindt Factory Shop
If all the chocolate “works of art” in the Zurich shops have turned your thoughts to chocolate, why not take a trip out to the Lindt factory shop? If you’re living in Zurich the Lindt “factory shop” in Kilchberg, is a great place to take the children and to survey the newest range of Lindt chocolates. You can maybe pick up a bargain or two, in addition to stocking up on reduced items or tasting the odd sample! The Factory Shop is open Monday – Friday from 10am – 6pm and on Saturday from 10am – 5pm. For more information read here.
Lindt Chocolate Workshops
However, Lindt don’t just have a factory shop – they also run Chocolate Workshops. During the Workshops you get to take a look at how the “maîtres chocolatiers” produce their masterpieces and you get the opportunity to create your own! Under the expert tuition of the chocolate chefs you get to make your own chocolates which you are able to take home with you at the end.
Some of the courses are held in English – and all the others are in German and they cost CHF 75 per person to attend. If you’re learning German you could see it as a double whammy – a German lesson and a chocolate lesson all combined in one! The course is open to anyone from 14 years upwards. They do get booked up quickly – so check the website regularly and book in advance.
