The Lindt Home of Chocolate will offer visitors an interactive history of chocolate, a research center, along with the opportunity to see a nine-meter high chocolate fountain that contains 1.4 tons of chocolate.

Federer, who is a brand ambassador for Lindt said, “The Lindt Home of Chocolate is a unique chocolate experience and I look forward to coming here with my kids.”

The 20-time major champion is not competing this season as he continues to recover from knee surgery. Federer is hopeful though that he can start training soon for next year.

Federer told German daily Tages-Anzeiger that he wants to have two training sessions a day starting next week. His goal is to be fully ready for the 2021 Australian Open.

Though he admits he is getting closer to retirement, he wants to give himself more chances to fully compete on the tour.

“It would have been easy to retire now,” Federer said about not competing since January, “but I want to continue to offer myself the chance to take advantage of tennis.”
