Oldtown & Chocolate Gems in Basel

Sweet Sightseeing in Basel

We will go on a stroll through the beautiful old town of Basel and visit local artisan chocolatiers while also discovering some other hidden historical chocolate corners.

On route, you will learn about chocolate history, discover chocolate as an artisan handcraft, understand the challenges of the chocolate industry, learn about the mystical side of cacao and indulge your senses with some of the 600 aromas that can be contained in cacao.

You will sample various sweet specialties at every stop along the way, including raw and roasted cacao beans and a delicious hot chocolate (or artisanal ice cream during summer) and cross the Rhein on a traditional wooden ferry while learning about a chocolate legend on the river.

On the tour you will also see one or the other sights of Basel.

As a Swiss-Colombian, I grew up at the cultural heart of cacao and chocolate and I love sharing my passion for chocolate, from the bean down to the bar, with my guests.

Wunderbar! Interessant! Erfrischend! Bereichernd!
Steffy führte uns an spezielle Orte in Basel wo sie uns in die Geheimnisse rund um den Kakao einführte und wir das Degustieren zelebrierten. Besonders die Kombination oder der grosse Bogen von Basels Handelsgeschichte, die Geschichten um die berühmten schweizer Chocolatiers mit den Prozessen im Anbaugebiet, der Gewinnung des Rohproduktes vor Ort, die kulturelle Bedeutung im Herkunftsland des Kakaobaumes befriedigte mein Wissensdurst. Toll vorgetragen! Danke!
