  • Cologne: Chocolate Museum Entrance Ticket

    2. Cologne: Chocolate Museum Entrance Ticket

    The Chocolate Museum is located in Cologne's old town, on the Rheinau harbor peninsula, surrounded by river on both sides. It can be easily recognized by the Malakoff Tower, which is located directly in front of the museum.   The museum houses a collection that traces 5,000 years of chocolate history. The 4,000-square-meter space contains exhibits that shed light on the origins and the culture of chocolate and how it has developed through centuries.  The treasure trove looks into pre-Colombian, Maya, and Aztec ways of using chocolate at the time when cocoa was a drink dedicated for Gods. From America cocoa travelled to Europe, where it became accessible only to wealthy classes. Cologne's Chocolate Museum will show you how chocolate became a treat for everyone and how media and advertising campaigns started spreading the news about this sweet snack.

    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!

    We accidentally booked the tour not knowing it was in German. The tour guide was German but still did the tour for us and did a great job. The scooters were very nice and fun! I hope they add a English tour guide in the future. I wish the pickup location was closer to the other side of the river. It was too far away from all the attractions.

Ralph was an amazing tour guide. Got to see the history of cologne with light humour and brilliant scenery. Ralph was really inclusive and made the tour suit us and the other guests. Would definitely do it again.

cool tour on an easy to drive scooter. We had a lot of fun with a great guide! Unfortunately we had only booked the 1-hour tour, next time we would definitely book 2 hours
