The tour starts with a short film - about 20 min. It's not going to win at Cannes, but it is informative. From the mom & pop start on the family farm, to an organic 'bean to bar' operation with an 18 million Euro investment in the operations. Even if you are only mildly into chocolate, the business case is... More

If you are within 50km of this place, it's a MUST SEE. We went back a 2nd time two days later. More chocolate to taste than you can possibly taste. Lovely environment. Kids are in heaven here, absolute heaven.

Whenever you are close to Feldbach, don't miss the Zotter factory (and later also the raptors on the Riegersburg). It gives you a very good insight of where the cocoa comes from and you can taste, taste, taste. We met the owner by chance and he is a really nice guy and passionate about what he is doing. Plan enough... More

Excellent experience. The tour starts with video introduction in the company business and the art of chocolate making. Than guests are invited to stroll around the factory and taste various products. Tasting is worth every Euro paid for the ticket. We were seduced to over spent in the shop, however couple of days after the experience when all the chocolate... More

What can I say?? This place is so much better than Cadbury world!! I loved the introduction video and the tour is great as you left to walk around by yourself and eat as much chocolate as you want.

This has to be one of the best tours/ experiences I've experienced. I have a huge sweet tooth and would recommend this to anyone who has one too. The tour was of very good value- you could try as much chocolate as you liked and let me tell you there is A LOT! You start the tour with an informative... More

We visited this chocolate factory with a group on our day trip to Graz. After spending some quality time in lovely Graz we were ready to fully immerse ourselves into some fine chocolate. Btw there's a shop at the end of the visit/tour and I must say their chocolate isn't on the cheap side. We paid 11 euros for entrance... More

First, watch the short presentation film with the 'magician Zotter' who will briefly describe his philosophy....then armed with your ceramic spoon be prepared to discover Zotters magical world of chocolate... from bean to bar..... as you travel around the factory you will taste many textures and tastes, with 400 variations and counting there is something to satisfy everyone. There is... More

This was truly an unique experience; the factory and the estate with the Edible Zoo are wonderful. And yes, you really can eat as much chocolate as you wish! You are provided with a ceramic spoon and you can fill it with all kinds of chocolates the Zotter factory produces - from early chocolate production and cacao grains, liquid chocolate... More

Girlfriend and me visited Zotter Chocolate Factory on May Day, first time visit. Although we expected much, the trip proved to be one of the best one day trips someone can make. First, Riegersburg is located in a beautiful part of Austria - green hills, occasional castle, scattered cows, sheep or goats are a regular sight. The factory is located... More
