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 Tour

Free, self-guided window tour is available anytime during regular retail hours. During production hours, windows along the side of our factory allow you to have a glimpse of 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.  Four large monitors have been added throughout the window tour to help enhance your experience.

Located in front of our factory in a beautiful chalet setting is our retail store where you can purchase some of your favorite confections you just saw being made through the windows.

The ideal time for a window tour is while our candy makers are in production – Monday through Friday between 9:00 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 used for a wedding or event).  All guided tours will receive a confirmation number to submit payment in order to hold your reservation.

Important Notes for Guided Tours

  • Guided Tour Times
    • Monday through Friday – 10:30 am, 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm
    • Saturday and Sunday – 10:30 am or 2:30 pm
      • Guided weekend tours may be unavailable due to staffing and classes
  • Tours last approximately 35-40 minutes.  It is best to plan for a one hour stay if you would also like to visit the retail store or stroll the grounds.
  • Please arrive at least five minutes before your scheduled tour time and send one representative into our retail storefront to check-in and pay.  If you are more than five minutes late, it is likely that we will be unable to give the tour or may have to skip parts in order for us to stay on schedule with our production needs.  
  • Your tour guide will explain factory rules to you during your tour.  As a working factory, rules and policies must be strictly adhered to.  We reserve the right to end the tour at any time without a refund due to disorderly conduct or any behavior not suited for our factory or facility.
    • Follow instructions given by your tour guide at all times
    • Remain 6 feet away from all staff members and stay an arm’s length away from tables and machinery
    • Front/backpacks are suggested for young children needing to be held during the tour
    • Stay with your tour guide at all times
    • Refrain from chatter while the tour guide is speaking
    • Refrain from talking on your phone during the tour. If you must answer your phone please notify your tour guide and they can direct you to an exit – you may miss part of the tour
    • Do not touch anything unless permission is given
  • Please do not park directly in front of the retail store.  You are welcome to park in the second row in front of our store, our side gravel parking lot, or on the street above the store.
  • Cameras are allowed for personal use (please no video or selfie sticks).  Please be respectful of our staff and others on your tour and ask for permission before taking head shots.  Commercial use or exploitation for profit of any pictures or video is not allowed without written permission from Boehm’s Candies, Inc.  Boehm’s reserves the right to pursue legal action.
  • No outside food or beverage is allowed in the factory, chalet, or chapel.
  • There is a fair amount of walking involved during our guided tour, including stairs and gravel.  Stollers/walkers/wheelchairs will be unable to access the chalet and may find it difficult to make their way through the gravel to the chapel.  If you would prefer a tour of just the factory please indicate so now by phone or email (the rate would remain the same).
  • In keeping with FDA guidelines, service animals are not permitted on the factory portion of our tour.  If you require accommodations to tour only the chalet and chapel with a service animal, please let us know upon making the reservation.
  • On weekdays after 3:00 pm, weekends, and holidays, NO live production of candy making will be viewable during a tour.  Monitors are located throughout the factory during these times to help show the production when it is in normal practice.
  • The High Alpine Chapel will be unavailable for viewing if there is the occasional scheduled wedding or function (generally occurring on the weekends)
  • Historical artwork on display may depict nudity or religious aspects created by the original artist and cannot be altered or removed on the tour.
  • Due to the unknown and constant changes surrounding Covid-19, we reserve the right to cancel reservations based off of updated CDC, State, and Federal guidelines.  A full refund will be given under these circumstances.
  • Please make sure all participants in your group are aware of our guidelines above.


A reservation will only be confirmed once you have received an email from us providing you with a confirmation number for payment.  Please allow up to 48 hours for a reply during the week as there is no one checking emails on the weekends or holidays.  Payment must be submitted within 48 hours of receiving this confirmation code or your reservation will be canceled.   For same or next day requests please call.  Please check your spam folder if you have not received a confirmation, as sometimes it can be found there.
