Here are some of the reasons why you should visit Fazer Experience Visitor Centre.

1. Legendary Chocolate Fazer Blue

Karl Fazer Milk Chocolate, commonly known as Fazer Blue, is the most sold confectionery in Finland. It’s has been an inherent part of Finnish culture and taste since 1922. There are lots and lots of flavours in addition to the basic milk chocolate, some long- time favourites, some seasonal novelties. Go and shop at the Fazer Experience Shop or find them in any kiosk or grocery store in town.

2. Exotic garden

Want to visit a tropical jungle garden on your visit? If yes, step into the tropical greenhouse in the middle of the Visitor Centre building. Feel the humidity in the air and see the wonderfully green plants, including ginger, chili, coffee plants – and of course cocoa.

3. Huge egg bunny

You’ll see it the moment you step inside the Visitor Centre: over 3 metres in height and weighing 100 kilos, this bunny isn’t something you see every day. The white and un-hairy bunny is made of 9330 eggshells. The eggshells refer to Fazer’s Easter speciality, namely the Mignon chocolate egg which has a almond-hazelnut nougat filling inside a real eggshell.

4. Guided tour

Book a guided tour and you’ll learn about Fazer’s history, operations, new innovations, and product assortment from the past to present. The tour is an experience for all the senses. For groups, there’s also a chance to book a guided exhibition tour with a chocolate mini-tasting with dozens of varieties! Pre-booking for tours is recommended!

5. Fazer Experience Shop

Fetch treats to take home, souvenirs for a friend or yourself, gifts or just to cheer you up!

Fazer Café Fazerila

After touring and shopping you’ll want to sit down for a moment and enjoy a lunch or a cup of coffee and pastries. Lunch is served on weekdays at 11–15 and a tasty weekend brunch is served on Saturdays at 10–14 and on Sundays at 11–15.
