Lindt & Sprungli Chocolate Factory Outlet Tours

Switzerland is famous for many things, including mountains, clocks, and, of course, chocolate. Legendary Swiss chocolatier Lindt & Sprungli has been churning out smooth and delicious confections since 1845. Today, visiting the Lindt & Sprungli Chocolate Factory Outlet shop, just outside of Zurich, is a must for any chocolate lover.

The Basics
There are no tours of Lindt & Sprungli’s headquarters and production facility, but at the nearby Chocolate Factory Outlet you can shop for—and sample—a wide variety of the company’s chocolate creations. Experience the shop on a half-day Zurich city tour that includes a one-hour sightseeing cruise on Lake Zurich, or as part of a full-day tour that also takes in Zurich’s surrounding countryside.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Lindt & Sprungli Chocolate Factory Outlet is closed on Sundays and many holidays.
  • Plan to spend about 30 minutes at the shop.
  • Be sure to discuss any food allergies with staff before tasting chocolate.
  • Don’t miss the movie explaining the Lindt factory’s chocolate production process.

How to Get There
The Lindt & Sprungli Chocolate Factory Outlet is located in Kilchberg, just south of Zurich. To get there, take S-bahn train 1 or 8 to Kilchberg, or bus 165 to Schooren. By taxi or with your own car, it’s about a 15-minute drive from Zurich’s city center.

When to Get There
While there’s no bad time to visit a chocolate shop, the Lindt & Sprungli Chocolate Factory Outlet is especially festive and memorable around the holidays. At Christmas, Easter, and Valentine’s Day, seasonal treats—like the famous gold Easter bunny and heart-shaped boxes of Lindor chocolate truffles—are available along with the shop’s other year-round delights.

If You Can’t Visit the Factory Outlet
You can’t leave Switzerland without trying Swiss chocolate. If you are short on time and can’t get to Kilchberg, you can still indulge your sweet tooth and try some of Lindt & Sprungli’s delicious creations in the center of Zurich. Check out the Sprungli Café at Bahnhofstrasse 21 or the Confiserie Sprungli on Paradeplatz.
