Book a tour and you will be amazed. No matter how many chocolate factories you have seen, Zotter is different. You will get a very interesting tour with lots of fun. And for sure, you can try excellent chocolates as much as you like.

It was a beautiful and sunny november day! We had a great time inside the factory, but also walking outside. So many flavours and different types of chocolate. Totally worth the price.
