The largest chocolate fountain in the world has just opened at a new Lindt shop, museum, and factory in Zurich.

The Lindt Home of Chocolate is made up of interactive exhibitions, the world's largest Lindt chocolate shop, and a "Chocolateria," but the fountain in the lobby is perhaps its most striking feature.

Roger Federer for scale.

The Lindt Home of Excellence opened on September 13, and Swiss tennis player and Lindt ambassador Roger Federer was in attendance at the unveiling.

Proving that dreams really do come true, visitors to the Lindt mecca can admire a 9m-tall fountain consisting of a huge stirring spoon towering high above the atrium, from which 1,500 litres of real chocolate pours down into a giant Lindor.

The whole sculpture weighs three tons, and was constructed after a meticulous design and planning process.

It's a lot of chocolate.

The chocolate flows through the fountain at a speed of 1kg per second, through pipes with a total length of 308 feet hidden inside the sculpture.

The chocolate mecca is in Zurich, Switzerland.

As well as trying to resist diving into the fountain of dreams, visitors to the Lindt Home of Chocolate can enjoy multimedia chocolate exhibitions to learn about the origins of the cocoa bean, the history of the production process, and the food's cultural legacy.

Make your own chocolate in the Chocolateria.

You can also get hands-on in the Chocolateria and make your own chocolate masterpiece.

And if you want to stock up, don't miss the largest Lindt shop in the world which covers an area of almost 500 square metres and sells exclusive products.

It's a chocoholic's dream.

For an extra personal touch, you can design your own praline packaging for a unique gift (even if it's only from you to you).
