Want Swiss chocolate? this Bruch maybe a cost effective way to do it. Tons of truffles and chocolate on the, buffet which is all you can eat. It includes a chocolate fountain. You can order egg and Rösti. So much chocolate. Dog friendly but, in good weather. Dog are welcome outside they even have a Hütte for the dogs outside. But if the weather is such you cannot sit outside then you cannot go with the pooch. But staff was nice they even called to tell us there was expected bad weather so we might not be able to go with the dog. Oh and I didn't realize it is pronounced roooooosti. (Rösti is swiss hash browns)

Chocolate lovers heaven. My wife and our child lost their sense of time and place. I ended up being the only one who read the placards about history and manufacturing of chocolate whilst we all binged our on unlimited tasting of chocolate of all sorts. Finished it off by creating two 200g bars of “artisan” chocolate deluxe. Fun to watch the production process too. With a 5 CHF spending voucher per adult as part of the entry, this is actually decent value for money. Total family fun!

ChocoWelt at Aeschbach Chocolatier in Root is great for children and grownups alike. A tactile, sensory experience from start to finish, with chocolate tasting throughout, and you can even make your own Swiss chocolate bar to take home. 😍🍫

The place is rather small for the price you pay. Also you have to pay extra for the chocolate making experience. I would say that the cost is too high for what you get. There are several chocolate samples in the "museum" for you to taste.

I've spent a wonderful day with my family altogether. I totally enjoyed every stage of the tour. You can taste delicious types of chocolates and learn a lot about their process. Even you can make your own chocolate bar. Their staff is super friendly and helpful!!!

For me it's a Chocolate Disney world!! I really recommend to visit this amazin place.

The Aeschbach Chocolate Factory was soooo amazing!! The chocolate was by far the best we had had throughout our tour in Europe. Going behind the scenes was awesome because not only could you learn about every step of the chocolate process and see the employees working and crafting the chocolate, but you there were free samples along with way!!! And at the end you have the option to make your own chocolate bar which was fun! Also every staff member was very kind and helpful on recommendations and help. Could not recommend more and would definitely go back!

Getting here was very easy via train from Luzern. There are about 10 stations to try chocolate as well as videos to watch on the process with viewing windows to the production floor to see different tasks being completed. I’d assume you might not see as much activity in production on the weekends even though the museum is open. It’s nice that they provide a 5 CHF voucher to use in the café or gift shop too.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience which we enjoyed. The colleagues here have all been very friendly and helpful, speaking better English than me!

You can engage with the tour and learning experience as much or as little as you choose. Lots to see and do, read, watch and taste. No limits on consumption but be warned not to go too early by overeating at the beginning, like a good night out remember to pace yourselves to make sure you last the duration where there is warm molten chocolate to be drunk/sipped, YUM!

I recommend visitors to take the option to make your own chocolate bar, our kids at 12 & 15 enjoyed that and the chocolatier who manned this experience was fantastic, animated, humorous and informative too there is the obligatory shop and a good Cafe which is open before or after your tour serving reasonably priced food that looks good. We visitors after our tour so we were all chocolated-out and only had coffee, WOW the coffee is ace! And we bought them with the money-off vouchers we got at the beginning of our visit... they were free.
I recommend this visit wholeheartedly.

This is a fun experience. The staff are very friendly. The chocolate is extremely good quality and the whole set out is cute. I recommend you don’t go on a sunday because then you can see the people making the chocolate down stairs.
Would go back again.

A nice experience, I enjoyed the smells and learning about chocolate. The kids love it and had already been here a couple of times. Some of the features where out of order and alot of the chocolate to taste was empty and sadly one person was working downstairs in the factory . It could have been better
