Pass Services. Runs June to October. More Information...
There’s no need for false modesty: Swiss chocolatiers are the
best in the world. Every town and city in Switzerland has its
favourite practitioner of the art, Teuscher
in Zürich, for example, for champagne truffles, or Blondel
Lausanne’s Old Town, with 120 different creations.
Bathe in chocolate
Enjoy a feast for the skin in the form of a body pack of
chocolate mousse at the Grand Hotel Bad Ragaz
or a chocolate
bath at the Day Spa
