Chocolate Museum (Schokoladenmuseum)
Chocolate Museum, Cologne

The Cologne Chocolate Museum provides an exciting insight into numerous aspects of history and modern times of chocolate and cocoa. Situated on the Rheinauhafen peninsula on the left banks of the Rhine directly in front of the Old Town near to Cologne cathedral, the Chocolate Museum seems a futuristic ship, made of glass and aluminium. Visitors reach the museum from the Rhine promenade over an old revolving bridge.

A tour of the exhibition extends over three floors of the museum and takes you on a journey through the 3,000 year history of chocolate – from the food of the Gods for the Aztecs to a modern industrial product.

Hours: Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm. Saturday and Sunday 11am - 7pm.

Admission: Adults 7.50 €, Concessions 5 €.
