  • After a cold morning stroll through the city, at the museum. Very cool to see how chocolate is made and then modified to chocolates. A must: chocolate milk drink in the cafe next to the museum!

  • People who like chocolate (who's not; if she would go not just to the hip) this interesting Museum is in the Cathedral City of Cologne don't miss. In addition to the different manufacturing processes, molds and flavors too much about the history of chocolate in experience can be brought. It cannot be tried not only to a chocolate fountain, but also chocolate in different expression bought. The walk from the Cathedral, through the old town of Cologne and past the Rhine (about 20 minutes) is highly recommended. Cologne shows in a beautiful and ancient side.

  • The entrance fee is slightly too expensive but what makes up the chocolate fountain. What also is a top idea, make chocolate itself. Whether with jelly beans or dried berries... also great as gifts

  • The museum is quite good for whom interested in chocolate, the history and the making of it. Three floors of enjoyable tour inside, in addition to the ability to see in production chocolate, which you can buy from the shop inside the museum.
  • I have been here thrice and I still feel like making a trip here every time I go to Koln... The place is fascinating for the ones who go first time - you get to see exactly how chocolates are made in a factory with real equipment and real factory workers doing it in front of you... You can get customised chocolates made... design your own chocolate with whatever ingredients and flavours you like... And the chocolate shop inside is like a wonderland... You can buy so many varieties and types in there... There are some great deals after Christmas on the leftover Christmas-themed stocks... and you may otherwise too find some great deals going on all-year round.
  • It worth it a lot. Very beautiful and very close to the cathedral by feet. 6.50 euro if you show a student card.
  • I don't think it's worth visiting! The price is 6.5Euro, and 1Euro fur cloakroom free. Go to the Ludwig museum, that is wonderful!
  • How can you hate the place where you can get to see chocolate all over it. Nice Museum which give details about the chocolate production right from the Cocoa beans and the process of the chocolate making. You can see live chocolate production and also can buy them.
