Even if you don't visit the actual exhibits in the museum, stop in during your trip to Cologne to grab a hot chocolate at the cafe. They have a kid's size as well which is perfect if you have a little one with refined taste. The raspberry cake was also very good. As for the museum itself, it's hard to... More

Ultimate place. I would suggest you to visit it once if you have any plan for the same. We all enjoyed it. The place is more tempting then the name

I had no idea what to expect here but since chocolate is one of my essential food groups I had to give it a go. The museum is located in a striking glass building on an island in the Rhine. Admission is 9 euros and you get a free square of Lindt chocolate with your ticket. The entrance hall is... More

We have visited before the lindt chocolate museum in Switzerland, so maybe we were expecting something similar with this lindt one in Cologne, but it was completely different. It's a bit boring, specially the first part of it. Get's better on the second part, once you can see some chocolate being produced and even get some taste. the view from... More

A chocolate museum? Well, yes, and it was really interesting! Lots about the history of chocolate eating and drinking and a production line to follow round and watch. Then there's the shop - a chocoholic's delight. and the cafe where they serve the most amazing cakes (chocolate of course) and many different varieties of hot chocolate and sundaes etc. We... More

The first part is really geared towards kids. However, when we went upstairs I was surprised to see that they were actually making and packaging chocolates here. Also, this museum is located on a fantastic piece of real estate with a great view of the river.
