If you happen to be one of those individuals who loves good chocolate, then you may have dreamed about visiting Switzerland. It seems as if there is another reason now to visit it, thanks to Lindt Chocolate. The Swiss chocolatier is now opening the largest chocolate museum in the world in Kilchberg, which is just outside of Zürich, Switzerland.
Known as Lindt’s World of Chocolate, it is sure to be a treat for any chocolate lover. You will be able to learn about where chocolate comes from, watch it being made and, of course, there are plenty of samples. A chocolate course is also available to teach you how to make chocolate treats at home.

There is one particular feature of the museum that is outstanding, and that is a 30-foot chocolate fountain. If you’ve ever seen the golden whisk in Lindt television commercials, then it will look familiar. The Fountain holds up to 390 gallons of chocolate, and 2.2 pounds of chocolate are pumped through the Fountain every second. By comparison, Lindt’s fountain is slightly taller than the Fountain in the Bellagio, Las Vegas. The Fountain in Las Vegas has both white and dark chocolate pouring down the structure of glass 24/7.
Visitors to the Lindt museum will walk away understanding why Switzerland is the capital of chocolate. It is an educational experience, showing how beans are taken through a process from cocoa the chocolate treats that you enjoy.
You also appreciate the Chocolate Heaven” where you can sample all of the creations of Lindt without limitations. You can also visit the Chocolatier area and make your own chocolate bars, truffles, and chocolate figurines, although there is an extra fee associated with it.
The Lindt World of Chocolate opened its doors on September 18. There are many features on the 65,000 square-foot campus, including the largest Lindt Chocolate Shop in the world.SKM: below-content placeholder
