Gruyere @ Switzerland (Part 3)



I am back.... anyway, let continue where I left off yesterday ya...

As mentioned yesterday, Today I will blog about Cailler Chocolate Factory tour...... It is like a dream come true you know... I am like the small boy in the movie " Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"..... just that I didn't win the golden ticket, I have to pay for the entrance fee..... T.T  SAD !!!

Image capture from Cailler Official Website... ( http://www.cailler.ch/en/maison-cailler/visit-us/directions/ )
 Cailler Chocolate Factory is located in Broc.... quite a distance from Gruyere train station. One way to get there will be the train.... where you can take the local train to Bulle, one of the bigger town and switch to another train to go to Broc..... Do get the time schedule from the local tourist board or the train station schedule that is paste at the Gruyere train station... Reminder, The time schedule during weekdays and weekends are slightly different... do check in advance..... We ended up spent nearly 2 hour waiting for the Broc train to depart and ended up have to walk back to Gruyere because of the timing.... SWT !!!!!!!!

 Entrance fee is 10fr for adults and FREE for children (16 years old and below with parents, not with group). Student rate will be at 8fr and do bring along your student card for verification ya!!!!

Quite a big attraction actually... For 8fr, we actually get to walk around the exhibition hall and enjoy the display which mostly consist of Poster for publicity purposes all around the world, actual packaging of Cailler chocolate throughout the years and many more. You have to queue up and wait for the guided tour which is going to bring you back in time..... where how chocolate is been discovered, when cocoa seeds been brough into Europe, how Cailler was formed etc.... Very interesting tour. The guided tour is without a guide, you have to enter room to room to see what there waiting for you. Each room is equip with animation (some of it) and interesting display..... Oh ya.... dont worry the guided tour is conducted in many different international languages. So no worries, enjoy your guided tour with your preferred language.

Me getting so excited before the tour........

Waiting patiently for the train to depart..... that took around 2 hour
