Highlights

Lindt Home Of Chocolate tour

Your one hour visit firstly takes you on a journey to Ghana to watch the Lindt cocoa farmers at work. Then you'll go back in time to witness Spanish explorers bringing their exotic discovery back from Central America, where it had already been known for thousands of years. Meet the Swiss pioneers whose inventions revolutionised the world of chocolate in the 19th century.

Discover the secrets of modern chocolate production, following every step of the process that transforms the beans into cocoa liquor, then into liquid chocolate, and finally into perfect bars and pralines. The pilot plant reveals the secrets of how the incomparable chocolate is made and show you what happens in a real chocolate factory. You can even follow new products as they are created.

Chocolate workshops

Make your own chocolate bar

Dive into the world of chocolate and see what it’s like to be a Lindt Master Chocolatier yourself! You will pour your own chocolate bar using the finest chocolate and decorate it however you choose using decorations such as almonds and sugar sprinkles. While your masterpieces cool, you will be guided through a chocolate tasting by one of the Lindt Master Chocolatiers. Then all you need to add is a lovely wrapper, and you can take your handmade chocolate bar home with you.

The biggest Lindt chocolate shop in the world

In the 500 square metre Lindt Chocolate Shop, you will enjoy a shopping experience like no other. Here you can find the best Swiss chocolate and a number of sweet gift ideas for your loved ones or a delightful souvenir for yourself. 

Look out for the new Lindt Squares. The product was developed exclusively for the pilot plant you will have seen during your tour. They make the perfect souvenir and are available in a number of different varieties in the Lindt Chocolate Shop.

You can watch the Lindt Master Chocolatiers as they work here, and experience their impressive craft up close. You can even order a chocolate bar created exactly to your wishes. There is also the opportunity to design your own personalised packaging for praline gift bags.

Café and refreshments

In the Lindt café, the menu is full of tempting treats such as fresh, handmade waffles and ice cream creations topped with the finest chocolate sauce. 

You can rediscover the classic hot chocolate - why not try it with fresh cream, Crème Noir cocoa cream, orange liqueur, or make it really pack a punch with chili and Tabasco!  

For a savoury treat, there are tasty salad bowls and a variety of delicious toasties and quiches. 

Lake Zurich pleasure cruises

While you are in Kilchberg, we highly recommend taking a cruise on Lake Zurich. The boat station is very close by, with plenty of connections. Travel is free if you have a Swiss Travel Pass
