  • This is a must activity in Cologne. We might have over dosed on chocolate but surely that’s the point! The museum is very interesting about the history of chocolate. The best bits we’re having...

  • You can buy tickets upon entry, no need for advance tickets unless you want. I thoroughly enjoyed going through the museum and learning the history of chocolate and how it’s made, processed, and used across the world and different cultures. Coolest part is seeing the chocolate actually made right in front of you through different steps. You even get to click a button that pops out the chocolate that was just cooled/made. Definitely worth the visit here in Cologne!
  • Nice place to have an idea about how the 'Lindt' chocolates are made. Very nice place to take children for their level of excitement. Especially nice to see the different types of process throw which chocolates are made. It's one of a kind experience. Not to forget and miss the free sample tasting of chocolate wafers provided. Wheelchair accessible entrance is available. Exciting information about chocolates are available.
