“Fabrique de Chocolat W. Lin...”: If you stand on Bern’s Nydegg Bridge, you can still make out this historic inscription painted on the building across from you. In 1879, chocolate history was made at Wasserwerkgasse 2.

The birthplace of chocolate has inspired many more chocolatiers over the years. Ovomaltine, Camille Bloch and Toblerone – the most famous chocolate in the world – also have their roots in Bern. Did you know that every single Toblerone bar that is sold around the world is still produced in the company factory in Bern?
