Resort al Centro

The Alprose Museum & Chocolate Experience presents the world of chocolate from its origins to the present day. Not to be missed is a stop at the ‘Nostalgia’ shop for a chocolate tasting.

From purely historical aspects and its individual components to the first production plants and today’s varieties, it reviews all aspects of a timeless product. The museum stands out for the richness of its documentation and the variety of exhibits. Alongside its didactic merits, the museum contributes to consolidating the tradition of Swiss chocolate, renowned for the excellence of its quality.

The museum tour ends in the ‘Nostalgia’ shop, where the rich variety of Alprose production can be tasted at will. From traditional bars to the finest confections, one can buy delicious specialities in the most diverse forms to savour in sweet company or to give as gifts. The decidedly favourable prices make it possible to prolong the pleasure of a fascinating visit.

In the Alprose factory proper, visitors have the opportunity to observe from the top of a gangway the various stages of chocolate processing: from the liquefaction of the cocoa to its wrapping and packaging. Immersed in a delicious cocoa aroma, one learns about the processing thanks to the comprehensive explanations accompanying the photographs of the ultra-modern machinery responsible for the basic treatments in chocolate production.
