Lindt Home of Chocolate celebrates a record year with over 750,000 visitors

During 2023, 752,053 visitors came to the Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation, at the Lindt Home of Chocolate in Kilchberg. This remarkable achievement puts the competence center, now in its third year of op-erations, among the most popular and most visited museums in Switzerland.

With its multimedia exhibition, the world’s largest free-standing chocolate fountain and Lindt shop, and the first Lindt Café in Switzerland, the Lindt Home of Chocolate drew in visitors not only from Switzerland but from around the world. Tourists from the USA, the UK, Germany and India in particular visited the museum in 2023.

The popularity of the Lindt Home of Chocolate is also shown by the 1,500 tours given by the skilled tour guides at the Lindt Home of Chocolate, who shared their knowledge of chocolate with visitors. These visitors also included around 400 school classes.

“We’re delighted by this positive reception worldwide and feel very fortunate to be one of Switzerland’s main attractions. I’m proud of the team at the Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation and of what we have achieved over the past three years. We’re already looking forward to a successful 2024 and to enchanting visitors from Switzerland and abroad with our chocolate,” said Ernst Tanner, President of the Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation’s Board.
