There are two things that you can do here.
Either pay a small fee and have a wonder through a number of rooms explaining the history of the spiced biscuits then see the biscuits being produced
or you can miss this out and just go straight to the LARGE factory outlet shop.
We actually went round and found it very interesting.
The biscuits that are made are SO MORISH!!! there are FREE samples on both the tour and in the shop itself.
We brought most of our gifts from here as it is cheaper then their shops dotted around Alsace.
definitely worth a visit

great place to visit, specially for those who go now and around Christmas time as they are preparing everything for the festivities
fantastic for old and young alike
for a couple of euros you can even decorate your own gingerbread man
also tasting all the different types of delicious cookies is just a treat
highly recommended

The place is at once a factory, a shop and a museum dedicated to gingerbread and typical alsatian pastries and cookies-making. The museum is admirably designed and so moving, you feel like coming back to childhood, its best and most cheerful and warm-hearted moments. Let alone the delicious cookies, gingerbread cakes and liquors, and other things you can buy. I really recommend visiting and re-visiting the place.

small museum totally made for kids. Lots of interactive screens explain the history of the gingerbread and how it is produced (bakers are off on Fridays though).

Thought the place looks cute and interesting. But there were closed when we got there. Little did we know that everywhere closes for lunch between 12pm and 2pm.

History of spices and trade etc was interesting. More fun with small children. There were dresser drawers to open and discover ginger facts and a gaudy gingerville display. Interactive programme I tried didn’t work. 4€ entry so I made sure I ate a lot of complimentary gingerbread!!

In talking with the clerk at the entrance, she said that the displays had explanations in French, German, and English; so paid my 4 euro to see the museum. It had many signs explaining the history of gingerbread. There was a set of drawers where one could smell and touch the ingredients. Most of the decoration was for kids. The look at the actual manufacturing was just so-so as nothing was happening. One can try samples at the end of the tour. The tour then exits into the shop (to try to get you to buy stuff).

The palace is a wonderful place which you will only find in" Fairy Tales". The "star" product here is the Gingerbread Cookies. The cookies comes in many shapes and sizes. It is a family run business for more than 2 generations. What a charming spot on Alsace's "Wine Road".
