The Schokoladen Museum is a chocolate museum located in Cologne, Germany. It was opened on October 31, 1993. This museum has three floors that showcases chocolate history and its production. The main chocolate partner company are Lindt & Sprungli.
Not to miss at Schokoladen Museum:
1. Chocolate Fountain – a gold colored chocolate fountain where you get to try chocolate dipped wafers.
2. Tropicarium – greenhouse inside the museum, its houses cacao trees.
3. Vintage chocolate vending machine – For 1 Euro coin, you get to dispense a Lindt chocolate bar.
4. Create your own Lindt chocolate – For 4.90 Euro customize your own Lindt chocolate bar. The staff makes it for you, and it takes about 35 minutes to complete.
Schokoladen Museum is a fun place to visit, you get to learn about the history of chocolate and other information. However, I do wish they had more chocolate tasting (like in Cailler Chocolate Museum). I only got 2 free chocolate tastings – 1 small chocolate bar (at the entrance) and 1 chocolate dipped wafer. So, I just bought myself a customized Lindt chocolate bar, which was amazingly delicious (milk chocolate with nuts and more chocolate stuff).
