Sprüngli, world-famous for its pralines and truffles, and this is its head office... In a survey, many Swiss living abroad admitted they miss the soft, delicious, airy (and calorific) ‘Luxemburgerli’, a type of macaroon developed for Sprüngli by a confectioner from Luxembourg many years ago. The café on the first floor is a must for hot chocolate, their breakfast buffet and much more.

Before Läderach came up with their idea of letting you choose how big you wanted your chocolate bars, who would have thought that oversized chunks of chocolate would taste so good?
Their factory shop including a visit to the production site in the Canton of Glarus comes highly recommended.
