Basel's Cheese, Chocolate, and Local Pastry Tasting Tour Info

Our discovery will let you travel back in time by exploring the city of Basel and Swiss food. The guide will lead you through Swiss delights and historical events that define the city and Switzerland. Be amazed by the Münster Cathedral and the 500-year-old Roothus (Town Hall) that houses several unique paintings. Make a remarkable memory of observing the iconic Tinguely Fountain. Along the way, you will head directly to a traditional Swiss sweetshop to taste the authentic treats of Switzerland.

Since Switzerland is known for its cheese, you will go beyond the usual tourist destinations in Basel to discover the process of making various kinds of Swiss cheese. Learn from a cheese sommelier to cherish the mild and strong flavors of young and aged Basel’s cheese. Try the country’s pride called Gruyère AOP cheese, including other famous cheeses in Switzerland. By the end of the cheese tasting, you will admire the natural taste of cheese, free from preservatives, food colorings, and flavor enhancers.

Awaken your sweet tooth in this city filled with freshly made chocolates with no additives. In this tour, you’ll be blown away by the historical significance of the development of the Swiss chocolate industry and understand how Switzerland was able to gain a spot on the list of the best chocolates in the world. To fully appreciate the detailed process of chocolate making, taste some mouthwatering truffles, hand-scooped dark chocolate, or chocolate almonds.

For your final stop, you will be guided to a local bakery to taste a traditional Swiss spice biscuit called Lackerli Patry. You’ll fall in love with the distinct heavenly flavor and texture of this 17th-century pastry with recipes that have been passed from generation to generation via oral or handwritten communication. Consider yourself lucky to experience a glimpse of Basel’s culture by tasting a local pastry that was formerly only produced in private households by housewives looking for an extra source of income.
