Start your 2.5-hour walking tour at Paradeplatz, where you’ll meet up with your guide, a local food writer and chocolate connoisseur with a working knowledge of Zurich’s artisanal sweet shops. From this main square, embark on an afternoon stroll with your small group through the cobbled streets of Altstadt, or Old Town, the historical heart of Zurich.
Chat with shop owners eager to share their passion for Swiss chocolate, and hear about its rich history. Discover the origins of the cacao bean while you indulge in single-origin chocolates.
You’ll enjoy a cup of specially churned hot chocolate at Zurich’s oldest confectionery, and taste an array of delectable treats — including nougats, pralines, truffles, pastries, cupcakes and homemade ice cream — at shops along your way.
After you sample a tantalizing range of decadent sweets, conclude your food walking tour of Zurich at the Rathaus (Town Hall) in the early evening.
