  • I’ve been here twice and each time was a fun experience. It’s not a true factory tour in that you’re not able to see their facilities, but you walk through a Disney like exhibition at the start to learn about the history of chocolate and of Cailler. From there you enter a room that has all the raw ingredients for chocolate so you can taste and feel them. Next you learn about the farmers and producers of the raw materials. To the right you’ll see a sample production line that’s actually making chocolates you can try. After all that there is a chocolate sampling area where you can eat as much as you’d like!

  • This was a lot of fun. You get a history lesson on where chocolate came from and how it developed over time into the treat that we know today. Then you get an interactive look at the different ingredients that go into Cailler’s products. We were able to touch and smell the ingredients themselves and learn the basics of how they are combined to make different kinds of chocolate treats. There is also a machine that turns raw materials into their simplest treat so you can get a sense of the process. I’m not sure what some other posts are talking about but this is a full functioning chocolate factory and YES, you do get to see the factory floor, although you can’t walk among the machines because of sanitary requirements. The chocolate tasting at the end is impressive, with several displays of different treats with the ingredients that went into each. And yep, you can gorge on as much as you want! Highly recommended. It makes for a great tour stop, or you can just show up on your own. From Bern it’s about 1.5 hours by train. Be aware that the factory is located in a rural area without much in the way of restaurants or other facilities.

  • I cannot say that this is a chocolate factory. It's more all about chocolate shopping. Adult ticket costs 12 CHF. There is only one small production line that is visible to visitors, the rest is behind the walls. The history about chocolate was shallow. I have been to chocolate museum in Belgium and it was a lot of interesting facts. In the end you will be able to taste different chocolates. I loved them. And here is a valuable tip: bring a bottle of water with you! Otherwise you will not be able to taste all sweets. It's a good activity for a rainy day.

  • Maison Cailler was at a bit of a distance and three train changes from where I was putting up in Switzerland. But I went there on a friend's recommendation. And boy, am I glad that I did. They push you into a audio visual tour the moment you walk in. The whole experience is fun and informative. The tour begins with 6-7 rooms having displays, photos, etc., telling us about cocoa beans and it's conversion to chocolate. Nestle plugs it's brand a number of times but that's to be expected. Then you enter a hall where you get to touch, smell and feel the various ingredients of chocolate, like cocoa beans, hazelnut, vanilla, almonds, etc. Kudos to the organisers that they can make such a simple thing so interesting. You then proceed to a machine which is making and packing chocolates, right in front of your eyes. My daughter's were very impressed by this. After a brief glimpse at the factory you are taken to a chocolate tasting room. Here you can sample / taste chocolates from about 10 of their product lines. I went through about five and my stomach became absolutely full. The verdict: A fun filled and novel experience. Kids will surely love it. So go for the same.

  • Passionate of chocolate and wondering where to go with your family and friends? This is definitively a place to visit! Only bad thing is that unfortunately the Maison Cailler has reduced drastically the variety of chocolates we could taste few years before. Indeed this was my second visit and this was the main change I noticed.
