CHOCOBERN Tours

I am Felix and I have lived for a long time in the old town of Bern. I attempted as a fan of the outdoors, on or in the water in summer and in the mountains in winter, as well as being fond of delicious food, to refine all these ingredients in the 'Like It' project (Magdas-Projekt). The project resulted in 2019, in the tenderly melting tours of CHOCOBERN, all about the thrilling chocolaty history of Bern.

This on the one hand provides accessibility to the given unique cultural heritage, to a wide audience, while on the other hand, the tenderly melting city tours meaningfully complement the cultural offerings of Bern.

I wish for the future that CHOCOBERN can be managed as mindfully as possible, so that it creates jobs for people like me, who do not have a linear resume.

Beste Schokoladenmanufaktur in der Schweiz
Casa Nobile
A little after the millennium the two masters, Willi Schmutz and Martin Schwarz, discovered making chocolate - for those of us fond of chocolate, much more than a lucky inspiration. Their chocolate creations, distinguished by 6 cocoa beans from Georg Bernardini, are namely not only the best in Switzerland, but among the best in the world. Their chocolate factory is in Bätterkinden, however since 2018 they also have a small chocolate boutique at Rathausgasse 45 that is located in the heart of the old town of Bern.

The CHOCOBERN tour guests, thanks to the “Artisti del Cioccolato” of Casa Nobile , enjoy the best Swiss chocolate that makes me as a tour guide, especially happy.
Beste Brennerei von Bern
Matte Brennerei
The time honored building at Mühleplatz 5 was built by the Bernese city mills that once bordered on the grounds of the chocolate factory Lindt and later that of Lindt & Sprüngli. It was used in the meantime as a cozy retreat of the Bernese Broncos motorcycle club. It was in 2016 that Lars Urfer started distilling gin and absinthe here. It would even be more correct to say that his production took off, as the schnappses produced conquered Bern and the whole of Switzerland in the shortest of time. The secret behind this is the patient selection of local botanicals and ancient craftsmanship that is being kept alive to perfection by the distilling team. This passion has probably resulted in the different awards for the schnappses from Matte.

CHOCOBERN organizes the chocolate and schnapps tour in cooperation with the Matte Brennerei and Casa Nobile. The tours always end with a chocolate and schnapps tasting at the distillery, only a few meters from the historical starting point of the tenderly melting chocolate.
