  • Be sure to stop by and see how chocolate is made but most importantly save time to browse in the gift shop. The prices are good and the chocolate is unlike anything that can be purchase in the USA 
  • Nice place but offers nothing more, tells the story of chocolate, has a mini factory where they make a sweet, but I expected more!

  • In the Café, there's a super cake and everything the Schokoherz. The service was also impeccable and quickly yet it is hard to get a table.

  • 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.
