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...

Went on the tour here and it was a lot of fun. Come hungry though, there is a lot of chocolate that you can eat.

This was one of the best family outings for us in lower Austria! Reasonable priced considering the amount of chocolate tasting you get to do! You start the tour by sitting and watching this interesting (but way too long) introductory movie about the Cocoa bean and about Mr. Zotter and how he started the business and what inspired him!

A great day out for all ages. The chocolate theatre was introduced in German but the film had English subtitles. The tour of the factory is self guided, with a good English audio guide. Excellent fun trying all the different chocolates! The restaurant in the Edible Zoo was very good. Very fresh ingredients and the staff were very helpful. Playground... More

Hats down to Mr Zotter for coming up with this idea of a factory/museum. The tour is very interesting as one can see the whole process of how chocolate is made and also try different ingredients, from raw cocoa to the many many final products. I have never before tasted chocolate with roses or fish, only here :) The shop... More

We were recommended this place by some Austrian friends - something for the kids. Well I think I was well and truely taken aback by the whole facility. Allow at least a couple of hours more if you want to visit the edible zoo. Pace yourself with chocolate tasting as there is more and more and more to taste. I... More

the introduction said there was something like 180 chocolates to taste, I think I got to 100 before I felt sick. Very interesting experience. The whole philosophy and site is really interesting, especially for families
