You know that one of the most visited tourist attractions in Switzerland every year is the Cailler chocolate factory? When you have the chance to reach the historic building Cailler and enter the modern building attached that gives access to the factory visit, you’ll quickly understand what I just discussed. It gives you the feeling of being in a real theme park of chocolate. If you’re a fan of chocolate I advance that you will find it a real temple where you can not only learn about the history of chocolate, native to America and its long tradition in Switzerland but also enjoy a huge variety of chocolates, candies and more.
The Cailler Chocolate Factory is located in the small town of Broc near Gruyeres, historical medieval town with a castle and seat of the production of the famous cheese of the same name, all in the Fribourg region of Switzerland. In this way you’ll discover the origins of chocolate dating back to the exploration of America after which Europe was cocoa. On the other hand is the oldest Cailler chocolate brand in Switzerland that still stands. It was founded in 1819 by Francois Louis Cailler and in 1929 he joined the Nestle group. During the factory visit you’ll also know several curiosities about chocolate, its production process and the different flavors and types of chocolate cocoa.
Of course the last stage of the tour is the tasting of chocolates with a huge variety of products and brands that are made in Cailler. The very last stage is a huge chocolate shop which is very popular with tourists where you can buy any of the dishes. In total, the factory visit can take between an hour and a half.
