The cultural history of chocolate
The Chocolate Museum Cologne, housed on a peninsula at the Rheinauhafen, is the perfect place for all those who like to nibble and learn more about the origins of chocolate. It is the most visited museum in Cologne with 650,000 visitors annually.
The chocolate manufacturer Hans Imhoff founded the museum in 1972, with the dream of creating a museum entirely dedicated to the history of chocolate - and with a chocolate fountain from which chocolate gushes out incessantly!
This dream became reality and since then chocolate fans from all over the world have been flocking to the museum. The most important exhibition in the history of cocoa and chocolate in the world is housed on over 4000 m². Both the 5000-year-old cultural history of cocoa and the production of chocolate are illustrated here.
In addition, you can experience how chocolate is made at close quarters in the glass chocolate factory. At the end of the tour, the chocolate fountain awaits you - taste it for yourself!
