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.

  • We overlook the tea, but it was full ... Luckily within the wonderful shop invaded Pralines and immersed in chocolate aroma, single-portion takeout pies are on sale! We chose the chocolate mousse: a riot of cacao from start to finish without ever being cloying ... not surprisingly this is one of the best chocolate shops in the city. We enjoyed at the hotel accompanied by black tea, great workaround in order not to lose a taste that characterizes the city. Recommended!

  • 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.
