  • It is a good place to visit, you can see all the real-time chocolate manufacturing process. A little expensive but it is worth visiting it.

  • Very very expensive, not sure if it was worth it. the ques were ages for the samples and the museum was highly boring, you could find better things to do. Still go to the caffee.  more »
  • All chocolate history, from plantation to chocolate factory where chocolate is made and packaged. You can see a small rain forest and many pictures and video of chocolate production. Not bad, but you ...  more »

  • Didn't visit the museum itself, although it did sound very interesting, but the café was spectacular. Around 10+ different types of hot chocolate, and all sorts of chocolaty wonders to eat. Whilst non chocolaty food was available, why would you?! Nice views over the Rhine as well. Will definitely visit the actual museum next time I'm in Cologne.
  • Great place to spend a couple of hours, lots to do and learn about with German and English translations on everything. The museum is over 3 floors which for the price you pay is very good. The part that takes you round a working factory section is very interesting and there is also an area where you can create your own chocolate bar which is a really nice thing to do for a little extra cost.
  • Lovely Charlie and Chocolate factory experience. Was given samples and able to make my own combination chocolate bar. Would have been better if we were told about cafe as we were hanging around upstairs waiting for our chocolate bar to be made when we could have been having a much needed sit down and snack.
  • Fab fun loads to keep kids of all ages engaged. Not overly expansive. Free chocolate as you go round. Great service in cafe and can pay by card
  • Lots of knowledge and information about chocolate with a large scope, from its botanical origin and gastronomical history to the social issues regarding its consumption and trade, as well as the depiction of modern manufacturing phases. You could spend a whole day in this tour. However, I would say the processing steps could have been more explanatory and didactic.
