Full description
To begin the tour you will meet your guide in the lobby of your hotel. Together you will make your way to the train station in Zurich. By train you will travel approximately 35 minutes to the industrial area of Root, where, just footsteps from the train station, the chocolate factory "Aeschbach" will await you.
Together with your guide you will enter the exhibition, where you will learn everything there is to know about the fine art of chocolate production. Different information points will give you an overview on various places, and you can witness the live production in the factory. During the exhibition, keep your eyes open for hidden chocolate, it's there for you to taste!
At the end of the exhibition, your guide will lead you to the interactive part of the tour, where you can create your own chocolate bar.
