Illuminating the Lindt Chocolate factory for Christmas

On the 17th November, 2010, the Lindt & Sprüngli Chocolate Factory was the setting for a spectacular light show. Brand ambassador Roger Federer, the Lindt Maîtres Chocolatiers and Ernst Tanner, Chairman and CEO of Lindt & Sprüngli, set the kick-off for the festive light projections by artist Gerry Hofstetter. Around 8,000 visitors marveled at the festive images and enjoyed the magical Christmas village around the chocolate factory.

“Today, a Christmas fairytale will come true – for everyone who loves Lindt chocolate and enjoys being enchanted by Gerry Hofstetter's fantastic light illuminations”, said Ernst Tanner, CEO and Chairman of Lindt & Sprüngli. Accompanied by well-known Christmas carols, the chocolate factory was illuminated for 12 minutes in the glow of 24 atmospheric images. The magical aspect was also evident in the festively decorated area around the Lindt & Sprüngli headquarters. Particular highlights for the children were Santa Claus, who listened to their requests in front of his house, and the children’s carousel.
