Join a chocolate workshop to learn from the best chocolatiers in the world, see the mountains from the air, have dinner in one of the best hotels in Switzerland. Visit a traditional cheese factory and a farm. 

Day 1 Do it yoursweet!

Make your finger-licking chocolate yourself learn from the top chocolatiers in the world.

This is a two-hour workshop delivered by a famous family of chocolatiers in Switzerland. The room is well organized for your arrival and it is really a paradise for chocolate lovers: there are pieces of different chocolates for you to try during the whole time you are there. In the end, you get the apron, the chocolate bar you create, a ceramic spoon and a diploma. Get ready to become a chocolate expert! The workshop has two parts. First, you start by doing your own chocolate creation, using the materials and liquid chocolate provided. The aim is to create a chocolate bar decorated with your own creativity. You can choose white, milk or dark chocolate for your design, write the names of the ones you love or simply draw your best using your imagination. Chocolate writing can be very relaxing, especially observing how liquid but dense chocolate flows slowly and fills your template. The second part takes your 5 senses to learn everything about the chocolate, the origins, the ingredients, the process, the difference between making different types of chocolates. All this happens in a very experiential manner, you get to try all the stages of chocolate creation, from raw cacao to the chocolate as we know it. Did you ever heard chocolate?? If not, you definitely have to try this experience.

After this unforgettable experience, we will walk through the historical center, discovering romantic places and the first Roman settlement of the city, narrow streets with luxury shops and centennial churches. We will be ready to have dinner in a centenary Swiss restaurant in the middle of the city and walk along the old town to delight yourself with the sightseeing. Sometimes, simplicity is the key to success. Swiss specialties may be simple first sight, but let yourself immerse in every bit and you'll discover the pleasure of loving hands having cooked just for you. Isn't it magic? Do you want to try it? Dinner in this centenary restaurant is like immersing yourself in the authentic and original Swiss culture. Always busy, staff extremely attentive and kind, and the best Swiss quality in the ingredients used. Here you can try specialties from different regions of the country, choose between a large number of beers and taste Rivella, the original Swiss drink that you can find nowhere in the world.

10:00 a 12:00
Day 2 A cheesy feeling :)

Are you a cheese lover? Dive into the misteries of Swiss cheese creation, visiting even the sweet cows that live in the nearby Bio farm and tasting a typical Swiss dish called Chäshörnli.

Experience hands-on making cheese like it was done 400 years ago, manually, with sophisticated wooden tools. Hear the evolution of Swiss cheese creation process, and let yourself learn around the Swiss cheese museum.

Visit also the cows where the Bio milk to make cheese comes from, an authentic experience where you are able to mix with the animals (if you wish so). Get into their day to day life and learn how a Bio process works and is implemented with the best Swiss quality. Learn where Bio cows have their own special realxing space to recover after they milk!

After this amazing nature feeling that only Switzerland can offer, you will have an exquisitve lunch waiting for you. Try the Chäshörnli kochen and a refreshing salad with the best pair of wine. 

Ah! Don't forget that the cheese you made on this day will be sent to your house via post when fermentation process and other has finished!

Day 3 A bird's-taste-view!

A royal journey to the Swiss mountains, visiting glaciers in a helicopter, Interlaken, and delighting yourself in one of the best Swiss restaurants Enjoy an original breakfast while riding in first-class on a Swiss train on your way to the mountains. Relax enjoying the views from the train, conversing with your companions, or simply reading your favorite design magazine. You will get for sure the best picture of the landscape. The highest above the sea level, the smaller and more private the vehicle you ride into gets. High up finally waits for you a helicopter that will take your senses around a really breathtaking experience. Observe the Jungfraujoch, the Eigernordwand, the mountains as a whole. Touch the sky, stop the time, feel fortunate. After this long day letting your appetite climb, it is time for a romantic dinner in Grindelwald. Taste and enjoy, it is your moment. Feel energized and go for a walk around the small village if you feel like. Tonight, you spend the night in the magic Grindelwald, sleeping in a very romantic five stars hotel. Living down-to-earth is great, but sometimes we need perspective to appreciate our lives. A paradise in Swiss mountains is waiting for your savior Vivre, palate indulgence or eagerness to give you the best, you name it! in the booking process.
