It was my 4th time there, always in the winter - love that city !
Never had visited the Chocolate Museum though.
Let's have a look, shall we ?
Beautiful medieval buildings on the way...
Outside the museum: many kiosks and open air shops selling wool accesories, honey, mustard and... yes, you guessed right: chocolate
Inside the museum.
To be honest, I first thought it was very boring, with info and lots of data, historical facts and interactive stuff for kids.
Because we first had strolled during the morning around Cologne, when I arrived at the museum I was already tired and thirsty. The museum is not immense. However, it is bigger than I had expected and if you really want to enjoy and read about everything then you need to save hours for it. There is a restaurant inside the museum with sandwiches and pies, called Harbour Terrace - quite busy.
Then upstairs it gets really exciting.
You see the production of real chocolate, a fountain, wrapping paper, machines. Then your visitst gets much more "real".
It takes some time andpatience though.
Very pleasant, it really stimulates your mind.
In a nutshell, that was it.
A lovely museum in a beautiful location, near downtwon Cologne.
There is more, of course, much more to see in the Chocolate Museum.
But then this would become a much too long post !
