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!

Take the self guided tour to find out what a great guy Mr. Zotter is. The world needs people like him. 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.

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
