Where you'll be

The tour starts with a view of the impressive cathedral of Basel while savouring a "Basler Läckerli" (traditional biscuit from Basel).

Along the way you will delight your palate with various sweet specialties including a hot or cold chocolate drink of your choice, the best chocolate bread in town, a 100% truffle and much more, while also enjoying the historic core of the city. You will even discover a chocolate legend on the Rhein.
