If you are passing by well worth a visit. Delicious chocolate with discounted prices. When you arrive at Oloron just follow your nose as the whole town smells of chocolate.

We were expecting to visit the real factory and to see how our chocolates are made. But this is merely a supermarket dedicated to Lindt chocolate. Nothing to see, just to buy chocolate as in any supermarket. Very disappointing.

This is nothing like the chocolate you buy commercially. This is very high-quality, super-fresh, wonderful individual chocolates. SO Many choices, so little time! Mon-Sat. WORTH it!

The Lindt Chocolate Factory in Oloron-Sainte-Marie is a factory outlet - not a factory. Makes me wonder where all the chocolate they sell is made. When I visited over the first weekend of September, the place was in the process of being renovated. Goods on...More
