  • Cologne: Chocolate Museum Entrance Ticket

    1. 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!

  • Cologne: Search for Historical Traces of the Romans

    5. Cologne: Search for Historical Traces of the Romans

    More than 2,000 years ago the Romans founded an early settlement in the area of Cologne’s city center, which received full city rights in the middle of the first century as well as a new name: Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium. The Romans built a city wall, a street network, a water supply, a sewage system, and established residential areas, businesses, temples and stately buildings. With these measures, the Romans created an urban infrastructure, which still influences Cologne's cityscape today. Even the main shopping streets align with those from 2,000 years ago. Depending on availability, you will explore the Ubiermonument and/or the excavation underneath the monastery church Groß Sankt Martin.

The Chocolate Museum is definitely a very interesting and worth seeing thing when you are in Cologne. I would definitely order the tickets in advance, you avoid a long waiting time at the cash desk and we have also booked a guided tour that I can highly recommend to everyone. You are informed about the important things and thus learn a lot about the production and processing and see a little more than the visitors who "just" walk through. A successful experience!

It was my second time there and I would visit it again on my next stay in Cologne. A nice journey into the history of chocolate. It is there for both young and old. While your own chocolate creation is being completed, you can enjoy the view of the Rhine over a cup of coffee.

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!
