The Chocolate Museum is definitely a very interesting and worth seeing thing when you are in Cologne. I would definitely order the tickets in advance, you avoid a long waiting time at the cash desk and we have also booked a guided tour that I can highly recommend to everyone. You are informed about the important things and thus learn a lot about the production and processing and see a little more than the visitors who "just" walk through. A successful experience!

It was my second time there and I would visit it again on my next stay in Cologne. A nice journey into the history of chocolate. It is there for both young and old. While your own chocolate creation is being completed, you can enjoy the view of the Rhine over a cup of coffee.

Visiting this museum was one of the best step for our short vacation there in Köln. My family and myself we were very surprised about this type of presentation, this line process to produce chocolate there was more than interesting. Thank you Chocolate Museum!

Very well explained. The little film is also very well made and the time travel is really fantastic. I have to do it again.

Good value for money lovely staff very informative
