Audio tour with multiple languages is followed by an interactive area with tasting, games and so on. Not too big so probably spend max 2 hours there. Certainly nice to do with kids also.

It doesn't take too long, even if you sign up (online in advance recommended) for the chocolate making course, it won't take you more than approximately 2.5 hours. The chocolate making was the best in my opinion as it really gives both adults and children an insight into making a... More

I've visited Chocolat Frey with family and friends from foreign countries 5 times already and still love it. Unlike what other people have written, I think that it's actually pretty cheap. You have fun making your own 2 chocolate bars and then can spend like an hour on the tour and eat unlimited chocolate from a conveyor belt at the... More

Making my own chocolate was extremly fun and I highly recommend it! Furthermore, learning more about the factory and how chocolate is made is very interesting. A highlight for me was the chocolate fountain;)

Its a journey from seed to chocolates via informative displays. The 'sushi' bar of chocolate is great. Worth a visit

For chocolate lovers, great trip. You can make your own chocolate, add anything you want and mold it. You take tour to factory and test as much

A place to visit if you are around the Canton of Aargau. The history behind Switzerland's most sold chocolate makes one excited. Tasting at the end of the tour is the masterpiece!
