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.

Reservation strongly recommended!

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

Registration & 3G rules

Access to the Chocolate Theatre and Edible Zoo is only possible with registration. In addition, we require proof of a negative test result, a vaccination or a recovered Corona infection in accordance with the legal requirements, also known as "3G rules" in Austria, which translates to "tested, vaccinated, recovered". This is necessary for every visitor aged 12 years or older. Unfortunately, a quick test on site is not possible.

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 hygiene must be obeyed. Our visitors are also required to take personal responsibility.

Please wear a mask in the shop area, as the Covid-related entrance rules don't apply here. As of September 15th, the use of FFP2 masks is (again) mandatory in this area. The chocolate tasting otherwise proceeds as normal.

Our chocolate shop is open for you! More than 500 flavours: the whole Zotter assortment is available. Hand-scooped Chocolates, pure single origin chocolates, dinking chocolates, couverture, handmade organic bonbons, Advent calendars, 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!

In our new 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.

Autumn is here and we opened our new Art Park with ponds as our newest attraction at the Edible Zoo for you. 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 (open until Oct. 2nd, Tue–Sat). Small snacks are available at the organic hot dog stand.
