Our Choc&Play chocolate workshops for kids run throughout the school holidays and all over the year. Workshops last around 30 minutes and are suitable for children aged 4 to 10 years old. 4/5 year olds are the youngest ages who’ll get the most out of it, right up to 10/11 year olds. Young children will need supervising and help, but that’s fine if you’re okay to get your hands a little chocolatey!
The Choc&Play workshops involve learning a little bit about the history and making of chocolate including a tasting of milk, white and plain chocolate. After being shown the workshop and shop each child will make their very own Choc&Play tablet under the supervision of our trained staff.

We also propose private chocolate workshops for several occasions:
The chocolate factory Zaabär was founded in 2007. The creator was inspired by a wide array of spices floating around the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Zaabär was created as an extraordinary combination of fine Belgian chocolate and spices from around the world. The idea is to let your taste buds roam free across the world tasting various more exotic or traditional spices. One of the aspects that nudges Zaabär out of the ordinary, apart from the truly exceptional combination of spices and chocolate, is the unusual vacuum sealed wrapping in which the chocolates are kept in. This wrapping offers a much longer conservation time for all types of chocolate.
The Zaabär factory was redesigned completely in the summer of 2018 and is now The Belgian Chocolate Makers. We offer a tremendous space of 600m2 entirely dedicated to chocolate experiences with both a huge workshop and an amazing chocolate store. We invite all our visitors to explore the tremendous world of our handmade Belgian chocolate through an array of chocolate samples, workshops and other activities, so come visit us!
