Frey Swiss Chocolate Factory
Frey Swiss Chocolate factory is one of the largest Swiss producers, founded by brothers Robert and Max Frey in 1887 in Aarau, Switzerland. They produce chocolate for the Migros supermarket chain and have a well-diversified range of products. The factory itself has no access to visitors. The visitor center in Buchs, canton of Aargau, near Zurich is enormous and super fun for the little ones. We’ve been there twice, and there are always new things in the exhibition!
What’s best for a family day trip here?
Frey has several attractions for small of all ages:
-The robot Robi packs the chocolates live;
-Chocolate tank with a video game;
-Photobooth that prints family photos in the bar of chocolates;
-Candy box to take pictures of the little ones with clothes and a truffle hat.
Frey Swiss Chocolate Visitors Centre
At the entrance, we can take some headsets (in Spanish, English, and Italian), which we can engage in several points of the exhibition. Production details are explained effortlessly by a Frey engineer at various points of the exhibition. We begin seeing the evolution of chocolate packaging now. On the ground floor, a quiz distributes exclusives recipes, according to the type of chocolate personality you are.
Highlight the tasting of several chocolates of the brand, truffles, Pralines, bonbons, and two chocolate fountains, one of white chocolate and one milk chocolate.
The Frey Cinema is outside the exhibition and shows old times videos from chocolate production. In the Boutique, it has factory products well into account and beautiful gifts and the coffee playground, several giant chocolate bars make the joy of children! A voucher for the coffee in the amount of CHF 5.-is included in the admission of adults.
