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...

Thank you for your feedback! We´re glad you enjoyed our vision of chocolate and met Mr. Zotter. Surely you got some insider info about the "Chocolate Shocker" too! 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

You simply must do the tour of the chocolate factory. Wether you are a major chocolate fan or not. The tour starts with a fun movie and then you take your spoon and let the fun begin. You are taken on a journey of chocolate. You will taste a plethora of flavours and textures some great, some surprising and some... More

Very intresting place, you can visit the factory and see the whole process of making chocolate, taste samples of chocolate. After visitin the factory, can see mr.Zotter property wiht a lot of domestic animals, they have a excellent restaurant where you can taste all food grown according to the highest ecological standard. The only negative is: too expensive ticket!

So interesting to find out about the story from the selection of beans to the finisched products. Just a little disapointed about the people taking the tour as the behaviour is slack. Whilst beeing told many times and also... More

I am extremely glad we decided to go here, we had the greatest time. Besides learning a bit about cocoa and how the chocolate is made, you'll eat much more chocolate than you ever thought you can. My favorite flavors are under the label "Mitzi Blue" - a must try, especially the "Rock & Roses" one!

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.
