Lindt opens huge new chocolate museum complete with 30ft-high chocolate fountain

Move over Willy Wonka – Lindt has just opened a new chocolate museum that’s sure to be a hit with anyone who has a sweet tooth.

The Lindt Home of Chocolate has everything you could want from a chocolate-inspired museum.

We’re talking huge rooms filled with all manner of chocolate treats, sneak peeks at how your favourite bars are made, and plenty more surprises.

However, one of the most striking features has to be the 30ft-high chocolate fountain that welcomes guests when they walk in, with real chocolate pouring down the eye-catching creation.

Sadly it’s a ‘look but don’t touch’ attraction, so guests won’t be able to dip any treats in the chocolate falls – but it’s still pretty dreamy to look at!

If you do want to tuck into chocolate, then you may want to check out the Pralines Tasting Room which, as the name suggests, is the perfect opportunity to indulge your sweet tooth.

There are tasting rooms and special exhibitions

Other highlights include a Chocolateria where you can become a Maître Chocolatier and have a go at creating your own confectionery, as well as the world’s largest Lindt Chocolate Boutique, with 500 sq m of chocolate shop to explore.

The chocolate museum is located in Kilchberg, Switzerland, so unfortunately Brits will have to wait a little longer before they can visit for themselves.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the FCDO currently advises against travel to Switzerland – you can see the latest advice here.

Still, it’s one we will definitely be bookmarking for the day when we can travel properly again.

In the meantime, you can find out more about the museum on the Lindt Home of Chocolate website, and start planning which exhibitions and masterclasses you’ll want to explore.
