The chocolate is good but we paid over $100 for a private chocolate tasting in the Zurich store and it was not worth it. We tasted about 5-6 chocolates each, heard about how the company started (great story but its in the brochure you get...More

It is indeed a gem if you like chocolate. They have also a (very) small boutique in Zurich where I usually get my sweets. I like the concept because it is so different and less commercial and stereotypical than other chocolate-brands which are doing a...More

Worth the experience. Didn't realize the Max guide was a certified Chocolatier by the Government no less. We need more fun training and Max level Chocolate in the States! Have fun--I loved all the raspberry and cream filled. Softy.

We went on the chocolate tasting tour of this place. It’s much smaller but definitely more homely place... compared to the place across the street. The chocolate is fantastic as the people who work there. More expensive than some of the places but worth it.

Had a most lovely visit, tasting and chocolate bar making demonstration hosted by Daniela, and demonstrated by head master Chocolatier David. Highly, highly recommend this incredible chocolate shop right across Lake Lucern in downtown Lucern. Do not leave without chocolate!!
