Visitors will also be able to take part in chocolate making classes hosted by the master chocolatiers where they can design their own sweet creations.
The chocolate history room features a ‘digitally interactive panoramic wall and round media table’ to allow guests to get a hands-on look at how the humble cocoa bean has been cultivated to become one of the world’s favourite’s treats.
Meanwhile, the factory room reveals how Lindt chocolate production works today, with three working chocolate fountains with white, milk and dark chocolate.
Visitors can follow every step of the process that transforms the beans into cocoa liquor, then into liquid chocolate, and finally into perfect bars and pralines – before tasting the creations right after seeing how they are made.
The museum will also house the biggest ever Lindt Boutique on the planet, while for fans of Lindt’s famous Lindor balls, there are also photo booths that come in the shape of one of the brand’s iconic sweet treats.
At the end of the tour endless fine Lindt creations can be tasted and enjoyed in the ‘Chocolate Heaven’ tasting room. You can find out more on the museum’s website .
