A new visitor experience awaits you !

You will uncover all the secrets of our chocolate production...

Destination: “plantations in Ecuador”

At Schaal, we are proud to produce our chocolate using cocoa beans grown on our own plantations. It is in Guayaquil, in Ecuador, the birthplace of cocoa production, that we chose to establish our plantation of cocoa trees.

Destination: “hazelnuts in Guyenne”

Our hazelnut tree nurseries and plantations, from which we harvest the hazelnuts used to make our delicious praline, are located in Guyenne, in the south-west of France.

Destination: “the chocolate factory in Geispolsheim”

Did you know that our production workshops are located right here, just a stone’s throw away from the gift shop and museum? Every day our team of enthusiasts develops new products to the same high standards as for the last 150 years.

Secrets of moulded chocolates

Hollow moulding allows our chocolatiers to let their imagination run wild, creating chocolates in poetic, fun, and surprising shapes. All aboard the train!

Secrets of sugar-coated delicacies

Our sugar-coated sweets have a smooth and shiny outer shell with a soft or crunchy centre. Apparently, the turbine looks like a huge bicycle wheel…

Secrets of ganache

A ganache is the creamy, melting centre hidden away under the crisp chocolate outer shell of our chocolates. There is no limit to the possible flavours… but can you identify the flavours hidden in our chocolates? All aboard the hot-air balloon to find out!

Secrets of praline

When praline paste is mixed with almonds or hazelnuts and sugar, it resembles a small planet. Ready for take-off?!

The flavours workshop

Chocolate tasting is not simply a question of taste. It calls on all five senses. Are yours up to the task?


Schaal is first and foremost a family affair, that of the Burrus Family: 150 years of history and four generations which each in turn has passed on their love of chocolate. Discover the fascinating story of this family enamoured with Alsace and gastronomy.
