Chocolate Fun in Bern

Was Bern once a Chocolate Capital? Meeting point is at the Kaefigturm (Prison Tower) on the Baerenplatz (Bear's Square) and the end is around 2 hours later at the Baerenpark/Baerengraben (Bear Park/Pit). On the walk, you will learn about Bern's exciting chocolate history by being guided through the old town to the places where the famous chocolate makers really left their traces. Various chocolate samples will sweeten your journey. You will also be introduced to the secret behind the melting chocolate, which was invented in Bern and became popular worldwide. However, since not only modern chocolate has its roots in Bern, but also the tour guide, he will certainly have more insider tips for you along the way. Although the walk takes place outdoors, it can also be completed in bad weather thanks to the protective arcades of Bern's Old Town. But whether the Swiss Federal City really was a Chocolate Capital or whether this claim is just marketing is ultimately up to you to decide! Important note: No chocolate factory will be visited on this tour.

Our meeting point is at the Kaefigturm (Prison Tower) on Baerenplatz (Bear’s Square). From there, you will explore the Old Town under the sign of the Bernese chocolate manufacturers. The expedition takes you to the Matte district, which is the oldest part of Bern. The second part is a visit to the Matte distillery, where you will enjoy various chocolates with matching spirits. The distillery is located right next to the building where melting chocolate was discovered around 1879 and has since become established worldwide. Consequently, today's chocolate has its origins in Bern. But as the tour guide has his roots in Bern too, he will certainly have some Bernese insider tips for you along the way.
