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! Reservation strongly recommended: Book your choco tour, experience first-hand how chocolate is made and snack to your heart's content, without any mask wearing obligations (besides in the shop area).

Reservation strongly recommended!

Note: some images and videos were made in the good old days pre-Covid 19.

New film in the Zotter Experience World

In the Chocolate Theatre we take you on "A Cocoa Journey Around the World" to Peru, Nicaragua, Belize, Madagascar and India. The best-of of all our film journeys of the last few years, since May 2022 in a new, previously unreleased and entertaining version with English subtitles by our filmmaker Roland Wehap.

Our chocolate shop is open for you! More than 500 flavours: the whole Zotter assortment is available. Hand-scooped Chocolates, pure single origin chocolates, drinking chocolates, couverture, handmade organic bonbons, Christmas gifts and many more. You can also assemble your own individual bonbon box and discover a lot of new flavours. We‘re looking forward to your visit!

During the tasting tour, wearing masks is no longer obligatory. However, please bring an FFP2 mask with you, as wearing a mask is required by law in the shop area until May, 31st where the tour through the chocolate theatre ends. In all other areas, the FFP2 mask is not required.

In our deli you can find delicacies from the Edible Zoo and we will be happy to serve you home-made desserts and first-class espresso to the accompaniment of relaxing music - with organic & fair trade coffee beans, of course from our own roasting.

The days are getting longer again, the first slightly warmer rays of sunshine invite to spend some time outdoors and so we reopened our Edible Zoo for you. In autumn, we opened our new Art Park with ponds as our newest attraction. You can see numerous colourful and creatively designed installations and sculptures by renowned artists such as Paul Mühlbauer, Helmut Kohl and Josef Lederer. At the Edible Zoo, you can enjoy the beautiful atmosphere and scenery, relax and watch our animals. Lots of action and fun await at the adventure playground, the giant slide and the Farmer's Golf course.

Our organic restaurant "Öko-Essbar" team is also looking forward to welcoming our guests again. Enjoy organic food, directly from our pastures and gardens, freshly cooked, with pure solar energy. Small snacks are available at the organic hot dog stand. Food & Drink at Zotter
