The home of the global brand Ritter Sport is located in a small town near Stuttgart. There is a lot to discover for visitors in the idyllic village of Waldenbuch. In addition to a chocolate exhibition, the Ritter Museum shows art from the 20th and 21st centuries.
Where does the cocoa for Ritter Sport chocolate come from? How are the different types created and how does the filling get into the chocolate? The chocolate exhibition provides answers to these questions. The individual processes are interactively explained to visitors here step by step.
In the adjacent Chocolate workshop children and young people can become chocolate makers themselves. Under professional educational guidance, the little ones can create their favorite chocolate here. Appointments must be booked in advance!
If you are in the mood for chocolate now, you should visit the chocolate shop. There is a large selection of different well-known and new types of chocolate. In addition, there are always cheap offers and accessories in the factory outlet.
The motto “square, practical, good” is also reflected in the architecture of the Museum Ritter. The building designed by the Swiss architect Max Dudler houses the Marli Hoppe-Ritter collection. The works on display include the square in 20th and 21st century art. Well-known representatives of geometric abstraction such as Joseph Albers, Max Bill, Imi Knoebel, Vera Molnar, Aurélie Nemours, Günter Umberg and Victor Vasarély can be seen here.
Changing collections, special exhibitions and a varied program of events make the Museum Ritter a place where young and old meet.
After a visit to the chocolate exhibition and the Museum Ritter, the Museum Café offers a wonderful view of the countryside. In addition to chocolate specialties, small dishes are also offered. The location can also be rented for private parties and children’s birthdays.
Tip: For some time now, Berlin has also been showing its chocolaty side. The colorful world of chocolate from Ritter Sport combines innovative chocolate gastronomy with exciting entertainment. The highlight: Visitors can have their own, very individual dream table created. Children and young people can even lend a hand and make their own favorite chocolate in the chocolate workshop.
