Lindt may have made headlines in August for a factory malfunction that infused the factory’s cocoa powder in the air with snow, causing a town in Switzerland to be covered in chocolate snow. Now the world-renowned chocolate company has opened the doors to the world’s largest chocolate museum by breaking the record for the world’s largest chocolate fountain.
The Lindt Home of Chocolate museum in Zurich celebrates the grade opening on Sept. 13 and unveiled the world’s largest chocolate fountain over 30-feet tall. The fountain depicts the iconic Lindt logo with a giant golden whisk pouring a long chocolate fountain into a giant Lindt truffle.
This chocolate fountain beats out the former title-holder of the chocolate fountain featured in the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada that is 27 feet tall. Lindt will also be offering a unique tasting experience in the world’s largest chocolate museum.
The museum features the Lindt Home of Chocolate interactive journey through the “seven chocolate worlds” from cultivation to the production of their delicious chocolate. This exhibit will also teach the history of Swiss chocolate making while teaching about its famous predecessors.

The Lindt Home of Chocolate offers a variety of attractions including the Lindt Chocolateria where guests can make their own tasty chocolate creations during a chocolate-making lesson. The Lindt Chocolateria experience also offers an inside look in the Lindt production process along with offering some tasty confections.
Guests can also visit the Praline Testing Room and the Lindt Cafe for more tasty treats. Though there is plenty of chocolate to eat during a visit to the chocolate museum, guests are encouraged to take some chocolate home with them with several shops offering all Lindt products imaginable including some exclusive products.
Lindt has worked the last seven years on this project to complement the original historical Lindt & Sprüngli factory dating back to 1899 in Kilchberg, Zurich. If you’re not planning on visiting Zurich anytime soon, Lindt has a virtual tour of the chocolate museum.
