  • We tried to visit but its not open to the public anymore. Apparently you can call up and book an appointment if you would like to see the factory but the place was deserted

  • For 10euros admission (book at least a week in advance) this Dr Oetker Welt factory was well worth it! You learn the history, brand & product development in a friendly environment! There's unlimited.....  more

  • You will not see any production or factory. The tour starts a bit exaggerated with displaying first baking powder paper bag in a kind of black box, then you get to see a couple of short video clips...

  • One has to book a place by calling there and given a day and time. Groups then are led to hear about founding of firm,products. The next is being led to the kitchens and explained how thoroughly they research products and test both single ingredients and the recipes they offer along with their produce. A testing of certain products is offered as well. Quite good for people with no allergies,some for vegans but very little for glutenfree as yet. Great experience to see how thoroughly they try to serve customers . Very friendly with people and children and patient even with little brats,as experienced.
  • The booking website says, payment by bank transfer (Überweisung), however, once you complete the booking request you receive an email confirmation and then you actually pay on site. You are then provided with earphones. The guide specifically mentioned NOT to take any photographs without permission of anybody (meaning her). You will view some videos about food preparation, e.g. the pizzas, then you are lead to some rooms with displays and free tear-off recipe cards. You can only view the test kitchen from the outside. After the first hour you can help yourself to some warm custard from the fountain. Free drinks are provided. At the end of the tour free hot pizza is served, including coffee and Dr. Oetker desserts, like little cakes. It is good value for money, however, once you read about Dr Oetker on Wikipedia, you pretty much know everything, especially if you have his cookbooks at home and use the products. A self-guided tour would have been sufficient, but obviously they can't do that because it is an actual office building which is currently in use. The products in the shop are way too overpriced. What annoyed me most was that people queuing up for the pizza did not give a toss about social distancing!! The guide should have stepped in and reminded people to keep a distance of 1,5 metres. I had a guy right behind me invading my space, and another couple just occupied our table even though there were many other free ones available. The show bag contained a magazine, a sachet of rye sourdough, a Gugelhupf (who still eats Gugelhupf, boring!), an empty box with logo
  • My friend and I had a good time here on Saturday. Everyone was so kind, careful about coronavirus precautions as well. There are personnel who can speak in English if you don't know German. All instructions of the exhibition were both in German and English. Pudding was delicious. We have just baked the brownie that we bought from there. Thank you for everything.
  • The guided tour was very interesting and extensive, the tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, and of course, the free food! :D taking one star off, because the tour was moving a bit too fast at times and there was not enough time to take all the written information in.
  • We visited the museum as a group. It is quite interesting and nice and we enjoyed it but they had no guide in English so non German speakers (we are a international group from the university) could not understand most of the stuff.
