Beautiful small Village and Great Visit. Entry is Free with SWISS PASS and its so Worth it. Its definitely a must go with entries to a 4D movies in different languages. Its so much fun a chocolate lover or just how well its thought out and made. It has a great cafe and THE Best selection of Nestle and Cailler chocolates
The Maison Cailler tour was absolutely fantastic - I'd highly recommend it for both children and adults. The first stage is a trip through history - a series of themed rooms with moving props and excellent narration (it looked like there were almost a dozen languages available). The second stage was a self-guided area where you can listen to stories from those involved in the production of Cailler chocolate. There were also stations around the room to see, smell, and touch the different ingredients used. Next you could see an example assembly line in action, with thorough descriptions, and you were given chocolates fresh from that line at the end of the hall. You could watch the factory workers active in a larger room following that, though they were only working on one type of chocolate when we were there. Following that, there was a hallway that gave step by step instructions on how to 'properly' taste test a small chocolate bar - it was great to slow down and really enjoy the experience. But that wasn't the end - the final room was a surprise - LOTS of chocolate varieties to taste test, so much that we were a bit overloaded and didn't try every one. Maison Cailler also had an option to make your own chocolate, but that was a bit pricey for our family, but we could see the 'chocolatiers in training' through a glass window having a lot of fun. This was probably the best tour of this type we've ever been on!
This is a good place to visit for both children and adults. There is a small tour which is pretty graphic and takes you through the history of chocolate and the brand. There is a free tasting at the end of the tour. They also have a small restaurant and a chocolate store. You can buy a lot of chocolate at a good price. I recommend taking the chocolate train.
Free entry for kids under 16! And just under £10 for adults. Bargain! A great interactive tour showing the history of chocolate discovery through to production in Switzerland. Interactive rooms explaining how it works today and where ingredients are from etc. You see a production line in operation then are told how to test chocolate ... before the best bit which is free tasting of chocolates from Cailler/Nestlé's ranges. Eat till you've had enough. My kids absolutely loved this place. We only waited 30 minutes for out your but did hear stories of 2 hours waits. I suggest a morning visit to avoid longest queues.
Don't have dessert with lunch the day you go. After the visit (which I found quite interesting) You have a long table of chocolate to taste. My advice, begin by the end of the table ;)
