What people are saying about The Cologne Chocolate Museum

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 2,471 reviews

Very nice visit. Appropriate price. The strong point of this activity is being able to see the production line. Furthermore, being able to taste melted chocolate with a nice wafer that is dipped at the moment does not hurt. A chocolate is delivered at the beginning and end of the tour. I would do it again.

A great ride through Cologne We were asked what we would like to see and where we would like to get off, very accommodating. Our rickshaw driver was very informative, he knew a lot and was super friendly. Since we paid 40 euros per person, we thought it was bad to tip. It's definitely worth a trip

Great for children (and busy with children), lovely shop downstairs and a restaurant to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate afterwards. Yum

Very clean and posh looking cruise. It on time and staff was friendly. It's highly recommended cruise company.

Informative and entertaining tour with our great guide Till. Gladly again!
