Wonderful chocolate shop

This is such a wonder in the heart of Berlin. Who would not want to go into a shop that had a chocolate three foot high Faberge egg with 65 kilos of chocolate. A wonder in Mitte.

This place was recommended by the guide book and it is a must visit for chocoholics. There is a shop on the ground floor with some stunning chocolate model buildings. Take the lift to the first floor and there is a restaurant where you can eat some of the chocolate creations. Coffee was good but the hot chocolate was too... More

A must see for any chocolate fans, visit the shop for amazing chocolate sculptures and gifts. The cafe was busy being Saturday afternoon but we were seated quickly and had the best hot chocolate ever! Great place to escape from Berlin's ever changing weather.

We've received a recommendation from a local friend - and we've definitely enjoyed! The place is a chocolate shrine! All possible shapes, small and huge sizes - all made of chocolate. It felt like a museum - where you can eat / buy all the items! On the second floor they have a cafe - we've ordered 4 different deserts... More

The coffee was good and the chocolate cakes were intense! They´re not very big... but I couldn´t finish mine. As a couple we shared one cake because the chocolate was so rich. We had to line up (4 people) for about 20 minutes on a Sunday afternoon, but it didn´t bother us. Not the cheapest and not a real "Kaffee... More

If you are going for chocolate you have to be here. You will get sweets for every taste in a Shop that looks like back in 1880, but with a service, witch meets high standards - but still in cosy and friendly atmosphere! Not only the Shop in basement has to be seen, also the little restaurant - or better:... More

Going to the restaurant upstairs is just an add-on (the view over Gendarmenmarkt ist really very niche) - the real experience of a lifetime is the ground floor assortment of chocolates: white, milk, dark, darkest; plain, or filled with mouth watering pralines, fondant, ginger sticks, you name it. Also some delightful tins, which you can fill up with whatever you... More

This is t h e luxury chocolate shop for Berlin tourists if you want to bring a souvenir home, e.g. for your at home caring neighbours. And you see some model buildings in Berlin in chocolate large version. But do not expect you find cheap offers, it is more the high level end. Americans love it, they bought a lot... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
