World's largest chocolate museum and fountain opens in Switzerland [video]

The 'home of chocolate' aka Lindt recently opened the world's largest chocolate museum — with the world's largest chocolate fountain — in Zurich, Switzerland.

A magical experience


Yes, it is reported that the confectioner opened the Lindt Home of Chocolate in Kilchberg on 13 September, inviting fans to step inside the brand's world with a slew of interactive experiences. The site was brought to life by the charitable Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation, which strives to sustain and promote chocolate making in Switzerland through science, research, education and public outreach, the organisation reports.


"The Lindt Home of Chocolate is a magical experience for every chocolate lover. It houses an interactive chocolate world that will delight young and old alike. With a more than nine-meters high chocolate fountain, a multimedia museum, a café, chocolate courses and the biggest Lindt chocolate shop in the world, the Lindt Home of Chocolate is an exciting chocolate experience for the whole family."


Of course, Roger Federer, the Swiss professional tennis player, was there for the grand opening.



The history of chocolate and much more


The massive museum features a 16 000 square-foot exhibit on the history of chocolate, a tasting room, an open-view production line, classes on chocolate making and the world's largest Lindt Chocolate Shop. The pièce de résistance is a 30-foot (almost 10 meters) fountain spewing "real melted chocolate" onto a huge Lindor simulated truffle, various news outlets reported.


It is said that a variety of guided tours and courses for companies, families, groups and individuals are available where people can experience the fascinating world of chocolate and create their own delicious treats. Federer even went on to say that he cannot wait to visit the museum with his kids.



About the project


It is said that The Lindt & Sprüngli factory has sat in Kilchberg, Zurich since 1899. The Lindt Home of Chocolate — a project seven years in the making — was designed to perfectly complement that historic building and serve as a beacon to chocolate lovers everywhere.
