  • For chocolate lovers, is playing at home. Seems to return children, immersed in a colorful and fragrant atmosphere, pampered by guys who do when cartons of chocolate, ingredients are strictly chosen by you. Its cold outside has accorded very well, so we went back again the next day.

  • Nice decorated shop with awesome chocolate sculptures. Here it's really craftsmanship and quality, then the prices are of course also then. Everything oozes quality and is super nice presented. Friendly and professional service. A must-see for chocolate lovers.

  • A nice shop with a large selection of different types of chocolate. You can also see some of the sights in Berlin made entirely of chocolate. Upstairs is a nice serving of heavenly hot chocolate, fine pastries and a little food. Do you like chocolate so make a visit here.

  • 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.
