Step into the Chocolatarium for an immersive experience, perfect for all chocolate lovers. Smell the roasting cacao and see how it is transformed from bitter beans to sweet, smooth chocolate.

    The tour was extremely informative all about chocolate. You were welcomed with a warm drink of thick chocolate, followed by a brief history around the popularity of chocolate around the world. Plenty of samples to taste, plus you make your own chocolate bar to take away. Can’t ask for more! Brilliant

    It was a nice and learningful experience. Thanks to Crow who did an extraordinary job with her enthusiastic and openminded way of telling you everything special about the history and the making of chocolate. You can see and feel that she really loves what she does. After a little bit of theorie, a selfmade decorated chocolate by yourself and a tasting from historic to present times you end up in the shop, where it is absolutely worth it to spend a little more time to get a nice and tasty souvenir ;) Thanks a lot for the tour Crow :) Zara and Patrick from Luxembourg
