If you bring someone with you from Zurich, it is often something exquisite from Sprüngli.In 1836 David Sprüngli opened Confiserie Sprüngli & Fils on Marktgasse in Zurich. From 1845, Sprüngli was one of the pioneers of Swiss chocolate producers and played a key role in establishing the still existing reputation of Swiss chocolate as the best in the world. In 1859, David Sprüngli and his son Rudolf secured a property on Zurich's little-used Paradeplatz because they hoped that the train station would be built here. This was not the case, which gave the Sprüngli family sleepless nights. But soon there was a lot of building activity around Paradeplatz. The passing Bahnhofstrasse developed into one of the most renowned shopping streets in the world. Confiserie Sprüngli, with its sales business and the associated restaurant, café and bar, occupies a top position today.
