From the cocoa plantation to the chocolate factory
You begin at a large model cocoa tree and then pass through a 10-metre-high tropical greenhouse as you follow the journey of cocoa from its harvest, through the stock exchanges of world markets, to its transport into the chocolate factory. Marvel at the numerous fascinating species of cocoa plant amidst the exotic greenery. Occasionally the plants may even be bearing fruit. The cocoa tree “Theobroma cacao” (food of the gods) originally grew in the Amazon region but today it is cultivated primarily by small-scale farmers in West Africa.
The museum produces its own chocolate and the chocolate fountain, constantly replenished with fresh Lindt chocolate, is not the only enticing highlight. Glass-sided machines also allow you to follow the manufacturing process step by step.
When visiting our chocolate workshop on the second floor of the exhibition, you will enter the world of handcrafted chocolate. Discover how favourites such as the truffles and chocolate figures are made, and you can even create your own unique chocolate bar from a choice of three types of chocolate and 40 different ingredients. The master chocolatier will then produce your own chocolate bar before your very eyes.
