Chocolate Museum

Like a ship made of glass and metal, the chocolate museum is located in the Rheinau harbour, directly in front of the old town, near the Cologne Cathedral.

The landmark of the Chocolate Museum is the Chocolate Fountain. The fountain was specially constructed for the museum, an artistic structure filled with 200kg of warm, liquid chocolate. The Maîtres Chocolatiers awaits you there an dat the three-metre-high chocolate fountain you can taste the fresh Lindt milk chocolate.

Chocolate Fountain & Chocolate Factory

But the museum produces its own chocolate and the chocolate fountain is not the only enticing highlight. Glass-sided machines also allow you to follow the manufacturing process step by step. In the Chocolate Museum the guests can see how this delicious chocolate is made from cocoa beans. The production of chocolate bars to packing, can be traced in detail through the large windows. A single board system, as well as the truffle production and hollow figure productions can be viewed here. Around 400 kg chocolate are processed daily in this mini-sized production.

The tour of the nine exhibition areas is a journey through the 4000 square metre of the culture and history of chocolate. You begin at a large model cocoa tree and then pass through a 10-metre-high tropical greenhouse as you follow the journey of cocoa. The museum shows you the 5000-year history of cocoa and brings together its chronology and range of subjects under a single roof. Also a nostalgic journey through the chocolate advertising of the early 20th century allows you to discover many eye-catching and entertaining promotional concepts, packaging and vending machines.
