Every first weekend in August everything in Lunzenau revolves around chocolate. This weekend the EuroBean Chocolate Festival takes place at Rochsburg Castle. At this sweet and unique festival, which focuses on handmade chocolate, fair trade and sustainability, visitors not only have the opportunity to taste the finest chocolates, but also to learn everything about their origins and to meet the creators of sweet temptations.

EuroBean Chocolate Festival Stage

Meet The Maker

We are certain that products can tell a story. The people behind these products catch our interest, and we want to share their stories with our audience. Therefore, we have one goal: to connect customers and manufacturers. Follow the chance to personally meet the people behind the products, for example, the chocolate master Josef Zotter and many more.

Bean To Bar

Organic farmers produce unique cacao, which is then further processed and made into the finest chocolate in factories all over the world through bean to bar practices: organically grown cacao beans, which are fairly traded and directly supported by cacao farmers. Try it yourself and taste the difference between bean to bar and industrially manufactured chocolate.

Organic And Fair

Sustainable food of high quality - organic, fair trade, free of allergenic substances, etc. We find it important to know about the conditions under which our food is produced. Not only is it important for health reasons, but we also feel that we can positively influence the world with our consumption habits. This connection is one key element of the EuroBean festival.
