Swiss Chocolate Adventure Museum of Transport Lucerne
With the school Summer holidays in full swing and all the rainy days we’ve been experiencing of late, it’s been great weather to visit your favourite museum! If your favourite museum is the Swiss Museum of Transport and you’ve been there recently, you will most certainly have noticed a new addition to their attractions – “The Swiss Chocolate Adventure”.
Located in Lucerne the museum’s new ride has a special appeal for chocoholics and has been created in conjunction with the chocolate makers Lindt. It’s a multimedia journey that lasts 25 minutes and tells the story of Swiss chocolate. It explains the history of where and how the cocoa beans are cultivated and transported and then how the end product is finally created and finished in Switzerland. The good news is that the commentary is also available in English.
Key Swiss chocolate pionniers such as François-Louis Cailler, (who created what is now the oldest Swiss chocolate company) Philippe Suchard, Daniel Peter, Rodolphe Lindt and Rudolf Sprüngli are all mentioned as their contributions have served to put Swiss chocolate on the map. And what better than a taste of chocolate to finish the experience!
To get a taster of what’s in store take a look at the video:
