  • A great place to kill a few hours. There is so much to learn and there are interactive parts as well. Go make your own chocolate bar before you see most of the museum as there can be a 45 minute wait. There is a cafe on the ground floor that looked excellent, but we didn't eat there.
  • I have been twice here. Really nice, I really enjoyed it, the smell is something you must experience. You see the workers doing chocolate bars life in front of you. You can even order your custom made bars which btw are the best you will ever taste. Beside they also got their own shop and cafeteria down at the entrance with so many goodies to choose from. Absolutely a must go if you are in Cologne!!!
