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

There is... More

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

It was an amazing experience! Although we were skeptic at the beginning, after we entered the first tasting room our dream came true! We have never eaten so much chocolate, such a variety of combinations and mixes of spices, and fruits, and caramel and nuts.... Positive was that it was lunch time and we were hungry. Maybe we will take... More
