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

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!!

What a big surprise! We have tested nearly all their chocolate specialities. I hardly recommend you the tasting experience (reservation preferred). We also receive a little extra bag at the end with different chocolate for the birthday of my girlfriend!
