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...

Best chocolate tour I've seen around the world! Not only the tour is very informative and full of surprises. And the testing of chocolate products is just breathtaking! So many varieties, shapes, flavours, aromas.... Also chance to try some of the best cocoa beans - which are hard to find in shops. One tip - dont go on a tour... More

Possibly the best attraction in Austria - we used to live in Vienna and this was a must visit whenever we had friends come and stay. When we came back for a visit this was ontop of our list of places to come visit and again it did not disappoint! Of all the chocolate tours in the world this ranks... More

I have never been to a chocolate factory where you can eat as much chocolate as you can! You start off with cocoa beans right through all the different products they make including free hot milk for their drinking bars of chocolate. The Edible Zoo is fascinating and the shop a chocolate heaven. Highly recommend and would go back. Well... More

When I mentioned to a friend that I was heading to Austria, his immediate reaction was, "You absolutely must go on this chocolate factory tour that has over a hundred free samples." He had me at "chocolate factory." While it was interesting to tour the factory and see how the chocolate is made and mixed, the highlight for me was... More

Zotter chocolate is really high quality, delicious, comes in all shapes and forms. The variety of ingredients is breathtaking and sometimes scandalous. Don't try everything, you'll regret it. All in all great but as a family experience.. too many photos of naked people and some obscene features. I don't think it's a place for kids really.

I love this concept. You can try as much as you want, nobody care. And I can guarantee you will be full early. So try only small quantity as there are lot to taste. Story is also very interesting. Thanks Mr. Zotter to continue his dream even of he had to solve lot of difficulties in his business.

Great family experience. We were here again after 3 years and the experience is even better now. We enjoyed whole day long. Started with the factory tour and finished with a long walk in their huge garden/park.

I visited this museum in January 2017. I didnt expect this kind of experience but it was really something special. You can eat chocolate as much as you wish, all types that are made in Zottero's family factory. You can make your own chocolate in a few minutes with more than 100 different ingridients. The factory has also great surroudnigs... More

This place is chocolate haven. The tour is a must and is worth every penny. You'll start your tour with a movie about the history of this place. With humble beginnings, today Zotter is the among the top eight chocolate manufacturers in the world. You'll be able to sample chocolate from chocolate fountains, try some weird chocolate compounds such as... More
