Decadent Chocolate and Luxury on a City Break in Switzerland

Travel & Tourism
We live in a society that demands that we work hard to get on, a society in which to be successful means that we must devote long hours to achieving our goals. But, for those who achieve the dream come the rewards of being able to enjoy life to the full, to experience new and exciting things and enjoy the very best possible lifestyle.

For the successful businessman, taking a break and recharging batteries is essential.  That’s why the idea of the short but luxurious weekend break has become a favourite with so many. And for the successful businessman who demands 5-star hospitality, gourmet food and luxury chocolate, a city break in Switzerland is an excellent choice.

The aim of this article is to introduce you to just a small sample of the amazing chocolate experiences waiting for you across Switzerland. We hope that it will turn out to be the start of an adventure as you explore the many different varieties of decadent Swiss chocolate.


Geneva, as well as hosting the headquarters of the Red Cross and many other international organisations, is also home to some exquisite chocolate manufacturers.

Favargerset in the village of Versoix, a 20-minute train ride from Geneva, are artisan chocolate makers Favarge. They’ve been producing chocolates for over seven generations and a guided tour of their factory (25 CHF), a chocolate workshop (75 CHF) or a chocolate tasting experience (15 CHF) are something not to be missed.

Philippe Pascoët, Chocolatier – This Maitre Chocolatier (Master Chocolate Maker) can be found at 12 Rue Saint Joseph, Carouge. It’s a small shop serving some of the most delicious and original chocolate creations you will ever experience.

Chocolatier Stettler – Located at 10 Rue de Berne, this is another taste experience not to be missed. These chocolatiers are especially famous for their traditional Pavés de Genève (‘Geneva paving stones’) which make the perfect present. If you take a guided tour (20 CHF) you get some “paving stones” as a gift at the end of the tour.


Luzern (not to be confused with Lausanne) would make another excellent chocolate-orientated city break in Switzerland. We recommend starting your chocolate extravaganza with these three chocolate makers.

Max Chocolatier – even though a relative newcomer, having only opened their doors in 2009, they have fast established a reputation for some of the most delicious chocolate creations around. As well as buying some of their fine chocolates, you can also take part in a chocolate tasting or making workshop (prices vary according to the number of participants).

Swiss Chocolate Adventurethis isn’t a chocolate maker but rather a multi-media experience that harnesses sound, touch, smell and taste to explore the world of chocolate. It is located in the Transport Museum at Verkehrshaus, so get the S3 train, bus no. 6, 8 or 24 or take a water taxi to reach it. Entry is 15 CHF for adults and 9 CHF for kids.

Aeschbach – this company have been producing fine chocolates since 1972.  Found in the Root District (just a 10-minute train ride from the city centre), this family-owned business also has a ChocoCafe, hosts chocolate-related events and offers chocolate experiences (15 CHF for adults, 8 CHF for children).


Durig ChocolatierThis popular chocolatier has opened another shop at rue Mercerie 3, not far from Lausanne’s historical centre and Place Palud.  They offer a wide range of chocolate bars, truffles and chocolate specialties all made from the finest cocoa beans and 100% certified organic and fair trade chocolate, along with a myriad of other ingredients.


Beschle Chocolatier – has four shops around Lausanne: Aeschenvorstadt 56, Centralbahnstrasse 9, Streitgasse 5 and St. Jakobs-Strasse 25.  Each location has a great selection of their fine chocolates and offers many other culinary delights to amaze your palate.


Lindt Chocolate Experience – This is one of our favourite opportunities to become a maitre (master) chocolatier in Zurich. You’ll learn everything you need to know to make your own fine chocolates; dazzle your friends with your confectionery knowledge when you get home from your city break in Switzerland.

Getting to Your City Break

Most European airlines run regular services to Switzerland – call your travel agent to find out which airlines fly to from your nearest airport. Make sure that you have a pre-organised shuttle waiting for you when you land by booking with Shuttle Direct. They have shuttle services from Bern, Geneva, Sion and Zurich and can get you anywhere in Switzerland conveniently and comfortably.


Author Plate

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct, the number one provider of shared and private airport transfers all over Europe and northern Africa. If you’re heading off for a relaxing city break in Switzerland, Lukas and his colleagues can make sure that you and your luggage get to and from the airport swiftly and safely.
