Does anyone know of any chocolate factory that one can visit near Lucerne or Lugano? Any info would be most helpful. Thanks. Navnita

Hi Navnita, as far as I know, there are two chocolate factories open for visitors in Switzerland:
  • the Cailler factory in Broc, which can be reached from Montreux/Lausanne and Fribourg. This would be quite a long trip from both Lucerne and Lugano;
  • Shoggiland in Flawil, which is at a 2 hours train ride from Lucerne.

There's no chocolate factory in or near Lugano, but there is a chocolat museum in Caslano, which can be reached by train in just 20 minutes.

My daughter is most disappointed but I guess, for now, chocolate museum will have to do! Thanks so much! Navnita
