One of Berlin's classic shopping destinations, Fassbender & Rausch Chocolatiers am Gendarmenmarkt seduces chocoholics with its rows of handsomely packaged truffles and pralines. The store opened in 1999, after two major chocolate-making families joined to form one of the largest chocolatiers in the world. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of its modern manufacturing facility and admire the huge chocolate sculptures of some of Berlin's most recognizable landmarks. Though you cannot buy or taste these chocolate masterpieces, you can choose from over 200 varieties of pre-packaged chocolate goodies at the on-site factory outlet store.

  • Even if there is no money worth a visit. This celestial Café is located near the Gendarmenmarkt. On the ground floor retail space with great replicas out of chocolate! The Café upstairs is certainly crowded, because it's a big one must also not long to wait for a table. Large selection of beautiful and delicious cakes, hot chocolate a treat.

  • Excellent chocolate and quite a reasonble price. The staff can be quite snobbish at times, but don't let that deter you from a fantastic experience. The small boxes of 12 chocolates which you can choose are my favourite, and we always buy a box, or two, each time we go there. Well worth a visit!
  • Great place to get a coffee or a tea together with an amazing delicious piece of cake. Nice and relaxing interior and half an hour free WiFi. Downstairs is the shop to buy a piece our more of their delicious chocolate and just a few meters away from one of the most beautiful places in Europe, the Gendarmenmarkt.
  • The hot chocolate (basic) was the absolute BEST I've tasted in my life! It was so good, that we went back so that others with us could taste it, too. (And of course so that we could get more!) You have to go upstairs (via elevator) to get it. And if you'd like you can sit down up there and enjoy it. And, enjoy it you will! And, the chocolate is pretty (very) good, too!
  • Awesome yummy chocolate. The cafe is upstairs and you can emerge it from the street.
  • Poor service thinking personnel at the shop. Waiting, asking nicely, asking again, waiting some...so no mini chocolate cake for my friends birthday. 😔
