Chocolate Factory Zotter and Riegersburg Castle

Sat, 2017-04-29 (All day)

Do you like chocolate? Yeah, everyone does. But what we want to show you is not just chocolate, it’s ZOTTER CHOCOLATE, the finest chocolate in Austria and probably one of the best in the world! We will visit the chocolate factory Zotter in Riegersburg, where you can witness the production of chocolate from the cocoa bean to the finished chocolate bar. During the tour through the factory you can try tons of various kinds of ... well, guess what, chocolate.

We will also see an impressing falcon show, which is one of the best in Europe and visit the beautiful Castle Riegersburg, the landmark of Eastern Styria and one of the strongest fortresses in the world!

So just in one day you get the chance to eat tons of chocolate, visit a fantastic falcon show and get a deeper knowledge of Austria – Where else will you be able to see that?!

NOTE: Although we definitely will eat tons of chocolate, you might consider bringing some food for the bus ride or the walk. Please make sure to appear at the meeting point in time or, even better, 5 to 10 minutes earlier to avoid unnecessary complications! If you have any food allergies, you should pay attention to the description directly at the tasting stations! Also a good tip is to bring small pieces of fruits (and tooth sticks) to enjoy the chocolate wells even more!
