Pralines, chocolate bars and dragées – Max Chocolatier's specialists conjure up true works of chocolate art in the bijou boutique on Schweizerhofquai. The ingredients are selected according to the seasons and imaginatively combined to produce a veritable party for the taste buds.
One rainy day, a lady went looking for sunshine. So Heini the confectioner created a praline in the shape of a raindrop to show her that a raindrop can also be something good. And good is definitely what these fabulous chocolate drops filled with kirsch eau-de-vie are! Not for nothing are Lozärner Rägetröpfli (Lucerne raindrops) now part of Switzerland's culinary heritage.
Focusing on creativity, Aeschbach Chocolatier AG has been producing high-quality chocolate and confectionery specialities just outside Lucerne since 1972. The ChocoLaden boutique in Root-Lucerne, for example, stocks very special, colourful chocolate bars in an assortment of flavours.
Bright yellow, luminous orange, neon pink, bilious green – each variety more seductive than the last. The light macaroons created by Bachmann the confectioners are easy on the eye – and the palate. Thanks to their practical size, they can be held elegantly in two fingers and are gone faster than you think.
