Hats down to Mr Zotter for coming up with this idea of a factory/museum. The tour is very interesting as one can see the whole process of how chocolate is made and also try different ingredients, from raw cocoa to the many many final products. I have never before tasted chocolate with roses or fish, only here :) The shop... More

We had booked on line and arrived in great anticipation ..... And... More

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.
