Zurich Chocolate Museum – Lindt Home of Chocolate
Learn All About Chocolate in Zurich
Lindt Home of Chocolate Zurich
A new museum opened in Zurich on 13th September 2020 and this one is unlike any other. It’s a museum dedicated to chocolate! The new Lindt building in Kilchberg, Zurich was designed by top architects Christ & Gantenbein, and it offers tourists and locals alike the opportunity to find out all about the history of chocolate. You can either discover the museum your own, take part in one of the tours or if you prefer to get more hands on, you can attend a chocolate workshop. All the tours and courses can be booked online. There is an on-site cafe as well and the largest Lindt Chocolate shop in the world!
Giant Lindt Chocolate Fountain
The giant 9 metre tall chocolate fountain provides a stunning centrepiece when visitors arrive.
Inaugurated by Roger Federer
The museum was officially inaugurated on 11th September by Swiss Tennis Champion Roger Federer and opened to the public on 13th September 2020.
There is an interactive multimedia exhibition which tells you all about the history of chocolate in Switzerland and how chocolate is derived from the cocoa bean.
What is even more interesting is that there is a show production facility where you can view the latest production and automation technologies in operation.
Largest Lindt Chocolate Shop In The World
As befits a Swiss company, the Lindt Home of Chocolate is where you will find the largest Lindt Chocolate Shop in the world. If shopping is not your thing, then you can relax in the stylish Lindt café, and enjoy chocolate specialties and waffles.
