Chocolate Museum is located in the Cologne quarter of Altstadt-Süd. It is opened every day and price entrance is quiet expensive for a museum (EUR 11.50 for Adult and EUR 7.50 for kids)..... The museum explains the history of cacao and chocolate around the world....More

A bit pricey, but interesting visit. Lots to see and interaction. Don't get to taste as much as we thought!! ( not like Cadbury World) the chocolate fountain is massive and there is a great shop at the end. Cafe has scrumptious treats too

Right on the river among the new developments and interesting star wars like apartments. The place smells you'd expect a full on chocolate box. You get to try, eat, make and have made chocolate. You get to see how it is made, watch the lovely...More

When our Cologne (Koln, Koeln) guidebook mentioned the Chocolate Museum, my wife, a confirmed chocoholic, was surprisingly unenthusiastic. She thought it would be more about milk chocolate and less about her favorite dark chocolate (it is not). But it took little coaxing to take the...More
