Great trip during bad weather. It is How chocolate is made from scratch. Interesting presentation through glass window where you can see the production and try all the delicious chocolate on the way. Of course you can buy them at the end as well.

Excellent idea for a family trip. When you go there on a trip you need to be hungry and even then you can not try everything. :D
