The Chocolate Making Process

On the hour-long journey of discovery, visitors also learn how cocoa pods are cultivated, harvested and then processed into fine chocolate. This is the type that practically melts on the tongue. Through the windows of the pilot plant, a high-tech factory/test facility, visitors see Lindt chocolate squares or bars being made before their eyes.

Tasty Samples

Undeniably the best part of touring Lindt Home of Chocolate is enjoying the finished product. At the end of the exhibition, visitors can sample pralines to their heart’s content.
