The "experience" is looking through 4 large windows watching some people work. The shop though... so much to choose from and the biscuits were brilliant. Worth going for them alone.

We went especially one afternoon but there was absolutely no baking going on and we were all disappointed. We visited the shop which has biscuits and cakes but more gifts than food. There are glass windows all along the factory but Im guessing you need...More

Thanks for coming ! True that in late afternoon, our workers are home. Starting at 7AM, we usually stoped cooking around 3PM... But we are organizing guided tours on mornings (in french).

Primarily a shop selling cakes, biscuits and other touristy items, before you go in the shop you can look through some windows and see them making the items, it will not take a long time to view, but worth going to get some presents.

I'm really sorry you couldn't see our bakers making biscuits. Unfortunately for you, they are only working from monday to saturday. That's why you didn't see anything. It would be really interesting for your childs. I hope you will come back soon.
