Came across Laderach Chocolatier, and having recognized the name, went inside. Was greeted very pleasantly by the salesperson, who was happy to help without being pushy. She offered me a sample or 2, and she knew what she was doing, because $100 later, I left the shop with a smart little bag of goodies for my book club pals and Christmas stocking stuffers for family. Everything I had from Laderach was very tasty indeed, extremely high quality and nicely crafted.

Marched in here with a huge group on our Globus tour to a beautiful shop with sheets of chocolate and all kinds of little wonderful pralines and other truffles. I got an assortment of 22 different chocolates and I’ve been trying them sparingly and they’re all delicious. Also I found are available to be shipped to my house in Michigan so I’ll be ordering more when they run out.

THE best chocolate hands down. We have gone to Laderach in Bern, Interlaken, and Vevey. We stuck with the dark chocolate bark. We will be in Zurich tomorrow and we'll find a store and have more.

If they opened up in LA (where I live), I'd move next door.

Today I visited the shop in Old Town Lucerne. While in the store I observed one of the employees blowing her nose while standing behind the counter. In front of her were about 30 bags of chocolate that she was packaging and labeling. After she blew her nose, she then put the tissue in her pocket and continued with her work. In America, we have very strict food practices. First of all, an employee should never blow their nose in a location where the are also working with any type of food item. Second, after they blow their nose, they should wash their hands, even if they are wearing gloves or working with tongs. Any germs that may get on your hands can transfer to the tongs and then anyone else who uses those tongs will get the germs on their hands also, and this is how illnesses are passed around.

I really wanted to buy some chocolate, so I found something on the shelf that was already packaged. I hope that such a fine chocolate shop can enforce better standards for their employees.

These people are masters in the art of making chocolate!! I haven’t tasted anything better, although Lindt is the Swiss famous brand, but this one is a great local one, there are all the flavors you may ask for and all in good quality, although its a little expensive, but highly highly recommended!

I am a frequent visitor to Switzerland, and over the past 15 years of so of my constant travels there I have tried a wide range of chocolates since Switzerland is the land of chocolates and all the time I had the belief that Sprungli was the top but after trying Laderach I have totally switched my mind. The truffles and the pralines are simply out of this World, so creamy, so fresh, simply amazing, you simply cannot have enough. Everything that is there is simply amazing and you stand there in bewilderment not knowing from where to start and what to order, it is that overwhelming. Don't miss grabbing one of those yummy heart shaped chocolates, my favourite the dark one with hazlenuts, and the huge creamy dark chocolate truffles. A must visit if you happen to be in Switzerland and they have a branch as well in Zurich as good as the one in Luzern

This medium size Laderach joint on a busy Lucerne street caught our attention
We just kept watching the various types and kinds of chocolates there
We bought a few and we were amazed
Lot of people also bought them and later on even in the Zurich airport lounge we bought them again

Initially we went to Laderach because we wanted to get some change (sells chocolate by weight), and a bit of chocolate couldn't hurt. Turned out to be the best chocolates we've ever had! It just tastes "fresh" and different from all the others. The milk and texture is so fine, with subtle flavoring.

Like if you ever had fruit chocolates (strawberry/orange/raspberry), usually there'd be a little too much flavoring. I think Laderach nailed it just right with raspberry, it's just subtle - a fine mix between fruit and chocolate. Hazelnut is a must.

Laderach also feels exclusive because it isn't sold anywhere else outside of Switzerland. So we had to bring some back home with us to share with our friends and families.

Truly the best.
