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...

A gem in a beautiful villiage

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.

We (2 children + parents) spent there almost two hours and almost 50 EUR, but it did worth every second and cent. The tour starts by two (not really) short movies, but then you can taste an enormous amount of different kinds of chocolates. One advice for novices: don't eat too much at the beginning if you like chocolates filled... More

A real challenge. That huge amount of chocolate. And so different in consistence, colour, taste, etc. We are amazed and will definitely go back. Every little corner is a new challenge to discover, even the stairs are full of chocolate bowls and machines. Leave enough space for the delicacies at the end of the tour, that's the top, although if... More

First of all ticket is too expensive (14,90€) but excellent advertising. You can taste cacao beans from different countries, a lot of spices, various of chocolate, mousses, etc. You can choose chocolate bar for hot drink. Chocolate everywhere :D
