Once upon the time around 1990 there was a master confectioner who thought that all the existing chocolate creations on the market are simply a little bit too boring. So after business hours he started to explore in the quietness of his company’s back room...

We were recommended this place by some Austrian friends - something for the kids. Well I think I was well and truely taken aback by the whole facility. Allow at least a couple of hours more if you want to visit the edible zoo. Pace yourself with chocolate tasting as there is more and more and more to taste. I... More

Zotter chocolate is mainly organic and fair trade and are involved in all aspects of the chocolate production. The factory allows you to learn how it is all produced from beginning to end product, and the best part is you get to try all the chocolate!...from the liquid forms, so the variations of solid dark, milk and white chocolates to...

the introduction said there was something like 180 chocolates to taste, I think I got to 100 before I felt sick. Very interesting experience. The whole philosophy and site is really interesting, especially for families

Zotter is just amazing. Not only you can taste tons of different chocolates there, which is delicious by the way, but they are also fair trade chocolate factory. Near the factory they have a farm and gardens.

Basically you go and eat your weight in chocolate and then wander around the beautiful grounds, petting adorable animals. A perfect afternoon.

We went there with friends who had recommended this place. It was awesome! The company movie was a very good start and we were delighted to see that the exhibit included very detailed information about ingredients, production etc. The audio guide was an added bonus, especially since the first chocolate fountain at the beginning of the exhibit does not contain...

You not only get to see how about 400 of their products are manufactured, but get to taste over a 100 different chocolates, ingredients, beans, chocolate drinks etc - all you can eat. It is well worth the money, and they have a huge organic farm witha animals and a playground you can visit beside all the above.
