What You Can Expect

Small-Group Chocolate and Sweets Walking Tour of Zurich's Old Town

Discover the sweet side of Zurich on this small-group walking tour!

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.

Very enjoyable. Enough time to enjoy each of the shops.

We had a great time on this tour. I was so overloaded with chocolate samples that i thought i would never eat chocolate again. Ha ha ha, that was short lived. Everything was good, even the sweets that we had. Christina was a joy. Lots of fun and worth the time. Don't forget to confirm by email about 24 hours before hand.

Absolutely wonderful tour! My tour was comprised of myself and 3 older women and our tour guide. It was a small group wandering through Zurich on a cold drizzly day, but the tour guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, fun, and personable and we had a great time walking, talking, and sampling delicious sweets. I had very limited time in Zurich but this was a great way to get a quick tour of the old city and its sweet secrets! I even went back to one of the shops after the tour to buy more chocolate!
