  • I highlight the Museum of PENCILS and key chains as the Pearl of the promenade (ideal for children). They have sale of sweets, preserves and rich cheeses. The sale attended by his sympathetic duseno. I recommend the dulce de leche! Good prices, except for the cheese which was not cheap to us (in the area of Cologne achieved more economical choices) also ate at the buffet offered roasted, salads and desserts. Suggestion: improve the presentation of the salads. The roast was not warm as it should eat.

  • Excellent! We have traveled to Cologne before but we had not visited this Museum, lucky recommended us it because it was fascinating. A sentence arrived at the closing and did not have a guide or we could meet their additional services, but the incredible collections! Brought us memories of things we had in our childhood but which we do not conserve today.

  • Museum's different collections: pencils Guinness record. Homemade jams with tasting area. Sale of local products, typical of Cologne and memories. Restaurant of home-cooked food at very affordable prices. Excellent free barbecue, salads and desserts buffet. Social, corporate events, weddings, and very good birthday.
