Welcome to the Zotter Experience World

Enjoy an unforgettable day at the Zotter Experience World in Bergl near Riegersburg in the Austrian province of Styria:

Immerse yourself in the world of chocolate!

During the exciting tasting tour through the Chocolate Theatre you will witness live how chocolate is created. You can look inside our production through the glass architecture and at the same time check out at the tasting stations how the cocoa bean is transformed into chocolate. From the bean to the bar. Chocolate is an experience! Book your choco tour, experience first-hand how chocolate is made and snack to your heart's content.

Please keep your distance!

We have set up several disinfectant dispensers in the visitor area and have installed hygienic protective screens at the snack stations. Gloves and napkins are also available. A further measure is the limited number of visitors per tour, so please make sure you book online. Our staff constantly disinfects the tasting stations and points out that the rules of distance and hygiene must be obeyed. Our visitors are also required to take personal responsibility.

Please wear a mask in the entrance and checkout areas, and in those situations where the minimum distance cannot be maintained. The chocolate tasting otherwise proceeds as normal.

The Edible Zoo is open for you!

Our Edible Zoo is open as well! Enjoy all our wonderful animals and relax in nature! Discover our organic adventure farm, where we raise old domestic livestock breeds and grow regional fruit and vegetable varieties. The Edible Zoo is an outdoor experience: organic, up close and personal! The Edible Zoo offers a calm environment in nature but also fun and action with farmer's golf, an adventure playground and a giant slide. The hot dog stand has snacks and drinks – all organic and directly from our gardens and pastures at the Edible Zoo, where your day ticket allows you to spend an entire day.

Opening hours and prices

Our Öko-Essbar restaurant is open from Tuesday to Saturday. Enjoy our delicious organic food while relaxing in nature! Our beautiful dishes are made with ingredients from our own gardens and pastures.
