Swiss chocolate at a great price

The chocolate is Ok but the price is very good. Many items were about CHF 2 - 3 and they have multi pack discounts as well. I didn't get to go to the museum bc it was closed on... read more

Lovely place, small, but you can see the old factory..... there is not a man or woman that give you a tour, but was a good experience, the shop has nice souvenirs to take, prices aren't t that expensive.

A chocolate museum which commemorates the 400 years of experience sweets Amateurs can see the production flow and can enjoy chocolate at the end with as they please. The visit is free and is not compulsory to buy something at the end, but you will not resist it after you eat chocolate.

On the day we visited, there were many workers doing their job. You can see them and there is a print explanation of what they are doing. You can see quality control as imperfect pieces are thrown into a bin. After you watch there are free samples of the various kinds. After tasting it is as almost impossible not to... More

We took the train from Lugano but was really not worth the effort. The factory could not be viewed and the people in charge did not even smile or show that we were welcome.

Our extended family visited here on our recent visit to this area. A small fee to enter then an interesting walk through the working factory before entering the shop. Every different variety of chocolate to buy, PLUS, a goodly selection - that was frequently topped up - of a great range of chocs that were free to taste, and that... More

The best parts were the plastic cow in the front and the chocolate shop (good chocolate...) at the end. If you are traveling with young children on a rainy day, perhaps you will find it a nice attraction. Otherwise, better to skip it. The very poor presentation cost 3 Euro for an adult and 1 Euro for a child entrance.

The museum is not that special. A nice thing is that I can taste all of the chocolate what they produce as many as you like. And of course there is a shop to buy this sweetness!

We expected oempaloempas as described in the book of Roald Dahl, unfortunately the factory was only running one line and the museum we had seen in 10 minutes within any oempaloempas.... It was ok but not worth the 45 minutes of driving.
