Even if the weather is not so good, you can find a place where to take a family trip. One of them is undoubtedly the Maison Cailler – Swiss chocolate factory, founded r.1819. The strong smell of cocoa hits your nose even before you buy a ticket. And your mouth starts watering… 🙂
The Maison Cailler is located in the town of Broc in the canton of Fribourg.
Needless to say, if you pay a visit to this chocolate factory in rainy weather as we did, you should be prepared for the crowds of visitors and you’ll have to wait a while for a guided tour (in our case it was about 50 minutes). But while waiting, you can take a coffee at a cafe, browse souvenir shop (the main item sold is the chocolate of course), or you can go to the cinema to see short advertisement movies of Cailler products or you can test your knowledge about chocolate in “choco quiz“.

Opening hours and entrance fees
Maison Cailler is open daily from 10:00 – 17:00.

a) today you will definitely not eat any more
b) you don´t want to even see chocolate for at least few days
c) you will never taste any other chocolate than Cailler until your death

And of course, I look forward to reading all your comments.
