Days 1 Do it yoursweet!

This is a two-hour workshop taught by a famous Swiss chocolate family. The room is well organized when you arrive and is really a paradise for chocolate lovers: there are pieces of different chocolates for you to taste for as long as you are there. At the end, you get the apron, the chocolate bar you create, a ceramic spoon and a diploma. Get ready to become a chocolate expert!

We will be ready for dinner in a century-old Swiss restaurant in the city centre. Dining here is like immersing yourself in the authentic and original Swiss culture. Always busy, extremely attentive and friendly staff, and the best Swiss quality in the ingredients used. Here you can taste specialities from different regions of the country, choose from a large number of beers and taste Rivella, the original Swiss drink not found anywhere else in the world.

Days 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!

Ah! Don't forget that the cheese you made on this day will be sent to your house via post when fermentation process and quality control is over.

After this long day of letting your appetite soar, it's time for a romantic dinner at Grindelwald. Try and enjoy, it's your time. Feel full of energy and take a walk around the small town if you feel like it. Living with our feet on the ground is great, but sometimes we need perspective to appreciate our lives. A paradise in the Swiss mountains is waiting for you.

9:00 a 18:00
Days 4 The call of the green

When mother nature is calling, the only thing you can do is answer and treat her well.

2. RECOMMENDED HOTELS CLOSE TO CULINARY EXPERIENCES

Switzerland is a country with very good quality hotels regardless of their category. It is also very well connected by tram, which practically opens up the range of possibilities of stay for this programme.

Our recommendation is to book a hotel in the districts 8001-8008, which is the central area and will allow you to go everywhere by tram. If you stay downtown, district 8001, you can walk everywhere. Any hotel in this area is perfect for walking or with few tram stops to the experiences we propose, to make cultural visits, to go shopping or to find good places to eat.

Recommended five star hotels: Hotel Bar au Lac or Widder Hotel. Both are very central, very well appreciated, with lots of life around, restaurants and shops.

Recommended four-star hotels: Hotel Marktgasse or Hotel Schweizerhof, both of which are very central, intimate and highly valued by travellers.


3. TRAVEL SECURITY

Switzerland is a very safe country; Zurich's choice as the world's highest quality city has repeatedly made it one of the first in its security assessment. Its can circulate through its streets without fear at any time of the day, there is a very low rate of robberies (practically nonexistent) and it is very safe for single travelers.

  • Hospitality is the hallmark of the Swiss, who will help you out on the street if you need directions.
  • The Swiss speak an average of 3 languages, don't be surprised if you read them in your own language because they are travellers, and besides French, German, English, many speak Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and even Russian.
