Plans for the new showcase facility will include an interactive exhibition, a research centre, a spectacular nine-metre high chocolate fountain, a ‘Chocolate Heaven’ tasting room, a Lindt Café, a Chocolateria for chocolate courses and the largest Lindt Chocolate boutique in the world.
According to Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation, which manages the project, it cost CHF 100m ($109m) to construct over three years and will also allow visitors to observe Lindt Master Chocolatiers in action.
“With the construction of the Lindt Home of Chocolate, we have created a Chocolate Competence Center that is unique in Switzerland and will strengthen the innovation of our industry over the long term,” said Ernst Tanner, president of the Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation’s Board.
Situated close to Zurich, the centre is expected to attract 350,000 visitors a year. Entry for the chocolate tour costs 15 francs for adults and 10 francs for children aged 8 and older.
