UPDATE: new meeting point for the Zotter trip!!

Due to the Graz Marathon taking place on Sunday, Franz-Graf-Allee (our original meeting point), will be closed to traffic. We will now be meeting on Griesplatz, near the bus stop for regional bus 691. See the map here. We are departing at 14:15, so please be there in plenty of time. If you have questions, contact us on +43 699 104 29 047.


The AAC is making a day trip to the Zotter chocolate factory on Saturday 13th October. We have hired a bus and will leave Graz at 14:15, arriving at about 15:00 for the introductory video and self-guided tour (download the app!) – including many, many tasting opportunities 😉

You can read more about the Zotter tour, which lasts about 2 hours. Afterwards we plan to either visit Riegersburg Castle to walk off some calories and have a drink, or visit a local Buschenschank for some Sturm, and arrive back in Graz at about 20:15.

The bus and tour have been booked for 30 people, and we need to fill all places to keep the price down, so please sign up and tell all your friends about it! The cost will be €25 including the bus hire and a day-ticket to Zotter – discounts for children as below. You can pay at a Stammtisch, via PayPal (with credit card, no account needed) or bank transfer (please email for details), or contact us to make other arrangements!

In summary:

Date: Saturday 13th October
Pickup: 14.00, Griesplatz, bus stop by Mariensäule (regional Linie 691)
Return: 20:15, as for pickup
Cost: €25 for bus hire and day-ticket to Zotter

To pay by credit card, please use the PayPal option below – and remember to fill out an email address or phone number so we can contact you afterwards!

Update Wed 10th October: thanks for all your interest! We expanded the original booking from 30 to over 40, but need final numbers now, so reservations are closed. If you are still interested, please contact us with a contact telephone number, and we will add you to a reserve list, should anyone drop out on the day!
