  • When the intense cold of Berlin seems to want to put an end to your desire to tour the city nothing better that to make a getaway to this place. Chocolate, cakes, chocolates and other treats in a beautiful building located in one of Berlin's most beautiful districts. The service is exquisite, excellent service and reasonable prices. On the upper floor is the cafeteria and the shop in the bottom. There if the price is rather more prohibitive.

  • to be inserted in a visit to Berlin ... Apart from the ground floor with a ridiculous amount of Pralines, chocolates etc. then the sculptures of the main monuments in Berlin not to be missed. We have concluded a visit to climb upstairs for a chocolate (flavor ottimo...ma don't expect our classic thick hot chocolate)

  • the cafe on the second floor is excellent. The chocolate they sell downstairs make a great gift to bring back home
  • The skill probably lies in their ability to craft really exquisite chocolate rather than its taste. That's not saying their chocolate is poor but rather, you will be paying for the layout and visual sensory.
  • Cakes were cold in the middle. Nice setting but think they trade on their name a bit.
  • Like a modern Willy Wonka's... Hard to decide what to get... Awesome statues made entirely of chocolate...
  • I visited this place over ten years ago and had a very different experience on my return. Having made a point to return - remembering friendly staff, samples to try, and the spectacular chocolate sculptures - it was a bit of a let down. This is still a German chocolate institution well worth a visit but it was a much more impersonal shopping experience.
