Lindt Opens World's Largest Chocolate Museum — With the World's Largest Chocolate Fountain
Be still my heart - heaven on earth has arrived in the form of Lindt Home of Chocolate that just opened its doors in Zurichon 13 Sept 2020. While we can't travel internationally yet, no harm marking this down on the must-visit list for the future.
The Lindt Home of Chocolate takes guests on a journey with an interactive museum bringing them through “seven chocolate worlds.” From cultivation to production, the cocoa bean that gifts the world with chocolate is the star of the story. The exhibits will also teach visitors about the history of Swiss chocolate making, teaching them not only about Lindt, but also about its famous predecessors.
The Home of Chocolate also features several other attractions to keep chocolate lovers busy. At the Lindt Chocolateria, for example, guests can create their own tasty confections during a chocolate-making class, while the research facility allows an inside look at the Lindt production process. The Praline Tasting Room is also a must, and a Lindt cafe is available to cleanse the palate and refuel for more exploring.
Of course, guests can bring home chocolaty treats as presents or to eat for themselves - we don't judge as the building also houses the world’s largest Lindt chocolate shop. While the maze of white, milk, and dark chocolates is impressive, the Lindt Home of Chocolate also boasts another record: the world’s largest chocolate fountain. Standing at about 30 ft. tall, this show-stopping fountain beats out the previous record holder by just a few feet. It’s also the centerpiece greeting guests at the entrance, setting the tone for the chocolaty experience ahead.
The Lindt & Sprüngli factory has sat in Kilchberg, Zurich since 1899. The Lindt Home of Chocolate — a project seven years in the making — was designed to perfectly complement that historic building and serve as a beacon to chocolate lovers everywhere.
