The Frey Swiss Chocolate factory is one of the largest Swiss chocolate producers, grounded by Robert and Max Frey in 1887 in Aarau, Switzerland. They are the Migros (Swiss supermarket chain) suppliers and have a well-diversified range of products. 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!

UPDATE 2020 -The Frey Swiss Chocolate Factory is closed until further notice.

Frey Swiss Chocolate Visitors Centre

At the entrance, we can take some headsets (in Spanish, English, and Italian), which we can connect at several points of the exhibition. Production details are explained effortlessly by a Frey engineer. We were starting to see the evolution of chocolate packages in the 20th century. On the ground floor, a quiz distributes exclusives recipes, according to the type of chocolate personality you are. The highlight is tasting several Frey chocolates like truffles, pralines, bonbons, and delight yourself on the Frey Chocolate Fountains, white chocolate, and milk chocolate. The Frey Cinema is an exhibition about Frey chocolate production. A voucher for the coffee in the amount of CHF 5.-is included in the admission of adults.

What’s best for a family day trip here?

Frey has several attractions for kids of all ages:
– The robot Robi packs chocolate live;
– Chocolate tank with a video game;
– Cocoa phone;
– Photobooth that prints family photos in a chocolate bar;
– Aroma Laboratory;
– Candy box photo spot;
