Visit Boehm’s Candies!
We invite you to come to our beautiful chalet in Issaquah to see where chocolate bliss is created! We offer both self-guided and guided tours as well as a Boehm’s DVD available for purchase.
Boehm’s Candies DVD
Unable to visit Boehm’s? We now have a short DVD featuring the legacy of Julius Boehm and the art of handmade confections created at Boehm’s Candies. Makes a great gift or a special way to remember your visit with us! Click here to order the DVD.
Self Guided Window Tours
Free, self guided window tours are available anytime during business hours. During production hours, windows along the side of our factory allow you to have a glimpse at the day’s happenings. Watch (and smell!) as our candy maker sets out a fresh batch of peanut brittle, admire the handiwork of our dippers as they roll and dip tasty truffles, and admire the many molded chocolate pieces in our molding and packaging department. Information posted at every window describes each area’s purpose, as well as gives some of the history of Boehm’s. Three large monitors have been added throughout the window tour to help enhance your experience.
Step into our retail shop afterwards for a free sample and a chance to purchase the delicious confections you saw in our factory!
The ideal time for a window tour is while our candy makers are in production – Monday through Friday between 9 am – 3:00 pm (some areas may be on a lunch break between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm. During holidays, special events, or other unusual circumstances production may be limited or not available for viewing).
Guided Tours (By confirmed reservation only)
On our guided tour, you will be escorted through our chocolate factory where you will see the art of handmade chocolate making (and enjoy tasty samples!), the authentic chalet where our founder lived, as well as the beautiful High Alpine Chapel -if not being occupied by a wedding or event.
