A self-guided tour of the Schokoladenmuseum takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the history of chocolate, cocoa production, and chocolate-making around the world. Walk through a tropical greenhouse with live cacao trees, see the chocolate-making process through glass-sided machines, and watch demonstrations by master chocolatiers in the workshop area. Guided tours, workshops, and chocolate tastings are also available.
The museum is a popular inclusion on Cologne city tours, and hop-on hop-off bus tours stop right outside. For the best value, opt to combine your ticket with a sightseeing cruise along the Rhine River, a ride on the Schoko-Express train, or entrance to the Odysseum science and technology museum.
