Fun place to see

Had fun checking out the chocolate museum. Spend about 2 hours there but could have used some more time. Very interesting to learn about chocolate and check out the samples.

Located on the river Rhein it offers freat views from the inside as well. There is a cafe from which you can enjoy. Admission is 9 eur but it is totally worth it. It is very informative. You will find out a lot about chocolate history, production of choco, tyoes and varieties etc. You can have free samples inside the... More

Absolutely 10/10 attraction to visit during your stay in cologne. Theres a great gift shop, an indulgent chocolate cafe (though its expensive), a large museum part documenting the history of chocolate, the process of production, fairtrade incentives and cultural meanings attributed to the product. The second part is like willy wonka's factory! There are an abundance of machines where you... More

As a recognised chocoholic I can recommend this place from start to finish. First we had morning tea at the cafe. The cheesecakes, other cakes and many delicious drinks from col to hot chocolate and many types of coffees were fabulous and we hadn't even started! Then we moved through the various rooms in the museum reading interesting bits of... More

I visited here recently while on a trip to Cologne with my boyfriend. It was a 9 euro entry fee each (which works out to around £8ish), which isn't bad considering the museum itself is on three levels and includes free samples in that price too. The museum is quite informative and also interactive for those who learn differently to... More

This is the famous Lindt chocolate factory line, somehow called a museum (no doubt - to lure in the tourists). Ticket is 8 Euros (expensive for what it is). The "museum" is located on a peninsula on the river. It includes some limited and boring information about the process of making chocolate, some old chocolate vending machines and wrappings of...

Not impressed by this place at all. I suppose if you had young kids with you to entertain its OK for an hour but I wouldn't really class it as a museum. In fact the best thing about it was its coffee shop-restaurant, the coffee and cake was pretty decent but that is about the only thing I enjoyed.really.

Visited here with a school group. Personally, I found the initial section concerning the 'history' of chocolate did not capture my attention, or that of many of the pupils in our group. The manufacturing section was of much more interest and there are some great views across the Rhine from this section. The coffee shop, which we visited at the... More
