  • Very nice place to have some chocolate or buy them as a gift to your friends and parent in hometown. I came here in the Christmas season, so there are a lots of food stalls surrounding the factory. You can enjoy even more fast food with a reasonable price. You should come here when visiting Cologne. Highly recommend
  • There's free chocolates at the entrance! Very nice place to visit, and watch them make chocs in moulds. There is machine inside so the room is filled with aroma of chocolates. Intoxicating! After all the walking, sit in the resto with a great view of the river, sip some more chocolate!
