This is not a workshop, therefore unless you're interested in the history of chocolate, it may be a bit boring. The chocolate shop is very good, reasonably priced and fantastic selection of biscuits and chocolates which make fantastic gifts.

Incredible place. Very good reception. We learn a lot about chocolate. Panels on the history of chocolate is wonderful. A single circuit. To go absolutely. Finish the day with a great cup of hot chocolate. The same delight in summer. Warum nicht ? Yes.

Situated beside the river Rhine which runs through the centre of the Chocolate factory comprises of a large shop selling chocolate in all its guises and flavours and an attraction based on chocolate which is educational, interesting and tasty as well.

Really interesting experience, wonderful insight into the history of everything chocolate, including its marketing, its provenance, different types of beans etc, but sadly it was horrendously packed full with a long queue down the stairs even half an hour before opening time.

Fantastic chance to watch how chocolate is made. After being given a mini square of chocolate, you'll walk through the museum and watch how it was made. Also, the ability to create your own Lindt chocolate in front of your eyes, just specify type of chocolate and what you want on it. 45 minutes later, your own unique bar.

We went to the museum on a very, rainy Sunday. Too crowded at the ticket counter. Very unorganized lines ( 2). A pretty long wait. A great place when you have kids. An educative museum for them. We had more fun across the street at the Mustard Museum! Plus their crunchy bockwurst was an welcoming snack!

On the way to the Chocolate Museum, across the street, we were accousted by two men posing as police. They asked to see our credentials, opened my purse, and stole two $50.00 Europs from my wallet. It was a devastating experience. We were in Cologne on a river cruise.
