Welcome to Schokoland!

The Alprose chocolate museum presents the world of chocolate from the beginning to the present day.

In addition to an account of the history and origins of chocolate, particularly of Swiss chocolate, there is a special highlight: visitors see the various stages in making chocolate – live. They watch the production of the liquid mass, moulding and finally packaging. And of course there is an opportunity to taste the product at the end.

If this gives visitors an appetite for delicious chocolate specialities, they can buy whatever their hearts desire in the museum shop.
