You get an audio guide and start inside a small cinema. After the movie ended you can start walking around the factory. And in the end you get a little try out which you can taste while having a nice view of styria.

We recently visited the Moet Champagne caves in France and were very disappointed by the bland, uninformative tour. So I was very pleasantly surprised to find, tucked away here in the Austrian countryside, an example of exactly what such a tour SHOULD look like. It's...More

This place is very beautiful and impressive, but the tour was only in german, so we could only visit the shop , which is worth a visit if you are near by. The products we have tried, oils and snaps, are of high quality.
