Chocolate attraction and castle tour
The Maison Cailler chocolate attraction is in the Gruyère district, not far from Bern. The factory of Switzerland’s oldest chocolate brand offers an insight into the history and the various production stages of Cailler chocolate. At the end of the tour, visitors can sample the sweet temptations and make purchases from the shop. Interested visitors can round off the chocolate experience with a workshop in the Atelier du Chocolat run by a Cailler chocolate maker.
