  • It's nice with some good history of chocolate. I expected it to be better as a museum actually, but good to visit and see. Their shop is good though  more »

  • Very nice place to have some chocolate or buy them as a gift to your friends and parent in hometown. I came here in the Christmas season, so there are a lots of food stalls surrounding the factory. You can enjoy even more fast food with a reasonable price. You should come here when visiting Cologne. Highly recommend
  • There's free chocolates at the entrance! Very nice place to visit, and watch them make chocs in moulds. There is machine inside so the room is filled with aroma of chocolates. Intoxicating! After all the walking, sit in the resto with a great view of the river, sip some more chocolate!
  • A comprehensive history of cocoa production and consumption to the present day. Get to see how chocolate is made with working machines and taste that really same chocolate. Interactive exhibits for kids. Toilet and cloakroom facilities. You get to order your own chocolate bar (for €4.90). They appear to have some sort of tour tasting/cooking session, which seemed worthy. Good views of the river. The cafe attached has had mixed reviews, but the hot chocolate was nice.
  • I think the €12,5 is worth it. At the end of the tour, you can taste the chocolate fountain. You will see how they make chocolates. Its really a wonderful experience. It just I dont know the nearest parking so we walk a bit far
  • Excellent history of chocolate, including its place in the history of Cologne. As one of the primary points of import of the cocoa bean into Germany. Actual historic chocolate making machines are shown for each step of the process and samples are available to test. Excellent coffee shop and of course a souvenir and chocolate emporium! Checoit the chocolate liqueur !
