  • Old family factory of sweets and jams, which a few years ago was opened to tourism. It is located at kilometer 167 of route 1, Montevideo - Colonia, town Creek. (just 10 kilometers from Cologne). Besides being a beautiful place, it has animals and games for children. Most notable in addition to be able to buy their products (which has free tasting) is the Museum collection which has its owner, Emilio, registered in the Guinness book as the world's largest collection of PENCILS. There are also thousands of key rings, antiques, and other interesting things. He is no charge for entry. At the end don't forget to visit the Jetty Creek a few blocks away, an interesting place.

  • We love the collections, a guide will explain everything. ... Then there's a tasting of cheeses and sweets .... At the end we lose track of time. If you have time is worth the visit.
