Europe is officially obsessed with chocolate, with almost every country using the sweet treat in distinct and unique ways to create puddings, cakes, snacks, and light bites. Countries such as France, Switzerland, and Belgium lay claim to some of the best chocolate in the world, so why not visit some of the factories where this delicious sweet treat is made?

Lindt Home of Chocolate, Switzerland

This museum offers plenty of insights into the methods used to make the famous Lindt chocolates, as well as lots of opportunities to taste them! Learn about chocolate as you move through the museum, before ending up in the cafe where most Lindt products are available on the menu.

Halloren Schokoladenmuseum, Germany

One of the oldest chocolate factories in the world, this stunning building offers a bespoke experience of the processes of making chocolate. Of course, there are also lots of opportunities to taste the delicious products being made here, and you can also buy personalized gifts in the shop and cafe at the end.

Chocolate Nation, Belgium

Come here to marvel at the world’s largest chocolate museum. Tours are extensive and quite tiring, so you’ll need that chocolate pick-me-up in the cafe afterward! There are opportunities to have a go at making some chocolate yourself, as well as plenty of bespoke gifts to buy in the shop.
