I really expected to eat a lot of chocholate for free here. And that wasnt the case... There is a lot of information about the production/origins/culture/making of chocolate. But... read more

If you love chocolates, then the chocolate fountain at the end of your tour - where a sweet lady gives you wafers dipped in warm, flowing chocolate - will be the highlight of your tour. Everything else is well presented and informational. I really just kept going to her for more delicious dipped chocolate wafers! ;-)

The right place if you (like me) love chocolate and are interested in the history and making of of this godsend...Location is very charming, being situated on a finger-shaped peninsula on the Rhein river. They even organize "maitre chocholatier" courses, chocolate-tequila tastings and build-your-own chocolate service.

More of an advert for Lindt than a museum. It's a nice enough way to spend a bit of your afternoon but you only get a tiny amount of actual chocolate on the tour. The gift shop is full of weird and wonderful chocolate flavours though.

I really expected to eat a lot of chocholate for free here. And that wasnt the case... There is a lot of information about the production/origins/culture/making of chocolate. But not a lot of tasting. A bit expensive, but very worth it if you never been to something like that.

The museum has information on how cocoa beans are harvested, the culture that produced and consumed chocolates, and the production process from bean to chocolate. The factory floor exhibit is very cool! Its store is also a chocolate lover's heaven. I'm sad that I didn't find the Lindt bunny that my baby niece loves. Such a classical piece too! The... More

An educating, chocolaty experience where you are taken on a journey through the history of chocolate onto actual viewings of how chocolate is made. It's fascinating watching this process and you are rewarded with a taste of a giant chocolate fountain with a wafer dipped in chocolate! Mmmmmm

Was not worth the long walk to queue and walk around this place, expensive to get in, very busy but it was just machines and a bit of history

We loved the Chocolate Museum! (9 euros entry fee) So many interesting things to see in the production process of making cholocate including working machines. A great interactive history of chocolate around the world including shipping, etc. Interesting exhibits. Free tastings and a great shop for purchases of this world-famous and favorite treat. It is a very popular museum so... More

can get very busy and the Q outside over new year was hours long, it was so busy that we sat and waited in the restaurant for 40 minutes before they told us to move inside, as there was not enough staff, where there was no seats!! We offered to go to the counter and order there, but they would... More

If you're the kind of person that love to know how things are done, this is a must attraction in town. You can see real people working in a small scale real chocolate production line. And yes, you might have a souvenir small chocolate bar from some gentle people around. And you can buy some more in the Museum shop.... More
