  • A great attraction for all chocolate lovers going through Cologne! The history of chocolate is nicely fleshed out by the museum. There is a glasshouse of tropical plants from around the world and an indoor pond. However, the chocolate factory is clearly the draw card. The machine are impressive, but the smell of chocolate permeates the air. You see production and the giant chocolate fountain. You can also order a custom made chocolate bar of your very own fillings. Highly recommended!
  • We had a good time at the chocolate museum. It was interesting reading about the history and production of chocolate and also fun trying samples. We went in the morning so as to avoid a lot of people. There were a few school groups in attendance but it didn't effect our experience. I loved trying the cafe and buying chocolate at the end. Great place to get yummy gifta for people. Highly recommend!
