The Zürich of MyKugelhopf is SWEET ZURICH!

An original, fun and delicious way to visit Switzerland’s most happening city, and learn that it’s not all about milk chocolate in the Alps. Kerrin of MyKugelhopf, true connoisseur of desserts, confections and chocolate, will let her sweet tooth guide you around the charming old town to discover some of the city’s most irresistible sweets.

Of course she’ll tell you about the 175 year old renowned chocolate empire here, and point out plenty of well-known destinations along the way. But most of all, you’ll visit the sweet spots that aren’t in the guidebooks – the ones that pass under the radar, yet are not to be missed. A special treat will be waiting for you at each address, so bring your cameras and your sweet tooth too. You’ll keep warm with a specially churned hot chocolate, get a behind-the-scenes look at the kitchen of the oldest bakery in town, savor a macaron or two, and discover the latest sugar craze here. You’ll also taste unique flavored truffles and bars, while of course learning about the history of and trends in chocolate in Zürich.

Sweet Zürich launches Friday, 4 February and tours will be on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons at 2pm. Tours will stay small (2-5 people), last 2-2.5 hours and cost CHF 85 per person. Private and/or customized tours are available as well.

All you need are comfortable shoes and a love of sweets! Please e-mail kerrin@sweetzurich.ch for dates and availability.
