The Chocolate Museum is located in the Rheinauhafen in Cologne, right on the water or on the Rhine. In and at the Chocolate Museum numerous events and events. Thus we find there, for example in winter a great Christmas market is held, and in the summer you can watch there on the outside area also films in the open air. A great summer cinema lures in good weather often to hundreds of visitors. An antique market and the Midsummer Festival lure also. At the door Wolters holds little train, so you can even conveniently take the little train along the Rhine to Cologne's old town.

The chocolate fountain

One, if not the main attraction of the chocolate museum in Cologne is certainly the chocolate fountain. Previously, there should still keep your mood a waffle or the like into the well. Nowadays the area is cordoned off around the fountain and you have to queue at a snake to get a fresh waffle with chocolate by the posted staff. Probably some school visits have this regulation made necessary :)
