Zurich is another one of the best destinations for chocolate lovers to visit on Christmas holidays. It is the birthplace of milk chocolate, and this city churns it out like it is going out of style. There are chocolate shops on nearly every corner. To really satisfy your sweet tooth, visit the Nopra Chocolate Shop for their Sweet Tooth Xmas Tour. Take a guided tour of the most festive parts of the city and head back to the shop to create your own chocolate while sipping on homemade glögg.

Another fun way to enjoy the special Swiss chocolate is a ride on the Chocolate Train. Leaving Montreux and heading to Gruyeres and Broc, chocolate lovers can get both sweet and savory on this train ride. Stop first in Gruyeres for the finest cheese and fondue tastings, then continue to Broc for an immersive tour of the Maison-Callier chocolate factory.

Also, chocolate lovers should definitely visit Lindt Home of Chocolate during Christmas holidays. Here you can visit the museum of cocoa and chocolate, see the production lines, try different components of delicious sweets in a store with an area of 500 sq.m., buy a lot of gifts, and sit in a cafe. And there is also a 9-meter chocolate fountain. You can create your own sweets or try one that the confectioner will create just for you.
