This was one of our favorite activities in Cologne. Other plans fell through so my adult daughter and I chose this as a convenient spur of the moment activity. Great choice. It is a 3 part activity, all sitting, which was a relief for our feet. The historical aspect is fascinating and the VR event was amazing. Relax, don’t feel self conscious about looking around. You’ll understand when you go.

Great to look round the museum and small factory - also to taste some of their wares and see how some of the moulded chocolate items are made. Made all the better by 'YourGuide' selling the tickets cheaper than at the venue. I could order the tickets in their reception area and immediately get in cheaper :)

Really nicely done. Great circular route through the zoo. Small highlights everywhere. If you don't get in the Christmas spirit. Just great. Should you have seen

This museum is definitely worth the visit if you've ever so much as TASTED chocolate! The exhibits and interactivity was as interesting as it was informative.

It was really cool to walk around and see chocolate being made! The staff were friendly and there’s lots of opportunities to get some chocolate!
