Christmas tale 2017 from -minu

It runs and runs and runs …

It is an absolute classic on four wheels and a true legend: the VW Bus. The Dutchman Ben Pon is regarded as its creator. With a few swift brush strokes, he drew a motorised mule. Of course, this was not intended to pursue a lifestyle idea, but first and foremost to serve as a simple and sturdy means of transport. Ben Pon’s inspiration came from a curious vehicle made by the assembly workers themselves, a “panel van” based on a VW Beetle. That was in 1946, and shortly afterwards, the sketch was turned into a prototype. In 1950, a box-shaped transporter rolled off the production line. It immediately acquired the nickname Bus. The Bus represents freedom and adventure on four wheels and is a symbol of independence and longing for faraway places. Today it is the perfect vehicle with which to escape the everyday grind for a while and devote yourself to the beautiful and pleasurable side of life.

The Läckerli Huus, long committed to the preservation of the tasteful and unusual, presents this prized piece of art in the form of a tin filled with choice delicacies – an exclusive gift idea or a treat for anyone who is longing for a little self-indulgence.

Lovingly hand-made for irresistible pleasure.

…this applies not only to the finest chocolate creations, made with great passion and attention to detail using fresh, choice ingredients. The film about the traditional craftsmanship of our chocolatiers also delights with wonderful impressions from our world of indulgence.


Café Gerbergasse, a pleasure experience on 2 floors


On the 1st floor, in addition to the impressive, historical perspective (wall) of this old-town house, a new café with seating for 10 awaits. In this quiet, cosy ambiance, we serve our delicacies. As well as traditional coffee and espresso, the indulgence menu offers other types such as cappuccino and latte macchiato. To prepare them, we use coffees from the Moccaraba coffee roasting house in Kleinbasel. Of course, there is also a fine selection of teas and other alcohol-free drinks to choose from. Each drink is served with a Basler Läckerli, freshly baked on the premises and still warm from the oven.

We are also pleased to offer a selection of our delicious pralines and truffles as well as fresh macaroons and small pastries – a treat for all the senses.

We look forward to your visit.

The world of chocolate pleasure

Created for you with passion: discover the new, exclusive chocolate creations from the Läckerli Huus!

Finest Swiss chocolate is at the heart of the new truffle and praline creations. Superior cocoa varieties and other carefully selected ingredients guarantee the exceptional quality of our delicacies, made according to tried and tested recipes with the consummate art of the Swiss chocolatier.

Our chocolatiers have created the unique recipes for our truffles and pralines with passion and attention to detail. The result: irresistible masterpieces that gently melt on the tongue and delight the palate with pleasure of the highest order.

The Läckerli Huus has moved

The Läckerli Huus has just moved to a new base in Frenkendorf (BL). At the same time, the former production locations in Münchenstein and Gelterkinden were merged. As a special treat for our customers, all of our many specialities can be sampled, freshly made, in a modern shop from 1 October 2014. Of course, you can still buy all your favourite delicacies direct here. The architecture of the building reflects the long tradition of the Läckerli Huus tins, and also the golden tones frequently used for them. From now on, you can not only buy the ever popular Läckerli Huus specialities in special themed and artistic tins, but the masterpieces themselves are also created and produced in a large tin, namely the new building.

The decision to move to a new headquarters and production site was not taken lightly: organisational and development challenges, ever-increasing demands on quality, various planned new developments as well as, of course, our belief in the future have induced us to take this step.

Environment-friendly production
“The aim of the new building and the new production facilities is also to produce in the most energy-neutral and resource-conserving way possible, for the benefit of our environment – something that benefits us all”, according to Stefan Geller, Operations Manager. All areas of the new building were therefore finished to the Minergie standard. This calls for complex procedures for heat and cold recovery in a production building. In addition, ground water is used for heating and cooling.

With loving care and traditional craftsmanship
Even after the move, we will be keeping up familiar traditions. Our delicacies produced to the original recipe will continue to be made with loving care and traditional craftsmanship. Through the use of new technologies and thanks to optimum conditions in the building, we will be able to go on satisfying our customers’ high quality expectations and constantly develop new delicacies for you.

An investment in the future
By investing in our new headquarters, we are making a clear commitment to our Basel origins. As an old-established Swiss company, we are proud to be able to continue serving our customers in Switzerland and around the world with top-quality specialities.
