We bought SO MUCH chocolate to bring back to the States ($122 worth! LOL). And it is so rich and creamy. They had many interesting flavors. I particularly liked their long white boxes that had multiple square "tiles" of different flavors of chocolate (Champagne Chocolate,...More

We stopped into the Laderach store in each town...they are SOOOOO good! I loved the truffles in these places, and my wife purchased some hot chocolate for a co-worker. I highly recommend these stored, even just to go inside a breathe the air!

It shouldn't be a difficult decision to buy chocolate in Switzerland, when its sold nearly everywhere and sometimes, it's aroma perfumes the street. I wanted something I could not easily get at home. We discovered this Laderach location while walking in the City Center. The...More

This is one of several branches throughout Switzerland. It is visited by tourists but also by locals (like me). Prices might appear high at first, but compared to factory-made chocolate it is definitely worth the extra buck. They have nice Pralinés (with and without boxes)...More

Shopping at St Moritz (2 Replies)
Dear all. I would be staying at Sils maria for 4 nights for the last part of my trip. Hoping to do some last min shopping at St moritz, however not keen in designer wear. Any department shops or a gd toy store to recommmend? Definitely will be visiting Laderach for chocolates though! Appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Depends what you're shopping for, but the centre of St Moritz is not large, so you could feasibly walk round all of its shops in an hour or two. There are no department stores, all small shops. Some purchases might be better deferred until you get to the airport, but again, it depends what you want.

Teuscher store in Zurich at the day of the flight back. Is it good? 3. Max Chocolatier - Luzern 4. Laderach at Mercure in...More

Hi fuli33 I think you will get more tips about chocolatiers around Switzerland from other posters. Felchlin Felchlin produces the world champion Maracaido chocolate which gets delivered to chocolatiers not only in Switzerland as I know. In their shop you can taste and buy all the chocolates they produce in pallets and bars etc. We like to buy our chocolate there and I would warmly recommend to visit.

We had a fabulous trip to Switzerland in September. Here is the first part of my Trip Report. I want to say a big THANK YOU to the Destination Experts and all TA contributors since much of the planning for our trip was done with the help of your suggestions, tips and personal experiences! Our first stop in Switzerland was the Lucerene area. We stayed in a pretty little town called Stans which had green rolling hills and a spectacular view of Pilatus.
