To quell both your curiosity and your taste buds, head over to the Chocolate Museum or the Schokoladen Museum.

Chocolate Museum, Cologne Reviews - Write a Review
Great place to satisfy the curiosity of how chocolate is made. It takes you through the history and process of making chocolate from the cocoa beans cultivation to packaging of the finished product. You can also view the machines and see the production process step by step. They have a section where you can experience the tropical rainforest. You also get to taste a waffle dipped in chocolate at the chocolate fountain.
Enjoyed our time here but can see how people would get bored easily. I think it would be a great place to take kids, they have kid friendly reading throughout the museum marked by a monkey on the sign. We found it interesting to see the machines and how everything comes together. There is a lot of reading throughout the museum. Some rooms we read it all, others we skimmed through. Ticket price did seem a little high for the amount of time spent here.
Nice museum. I loved the part where they have recreated a rain forest. This one inclusion in the museum lifted the whole experience to a new level. Wafer with chocolate offered was very good. I felt the prices in the shop in the premises were very high and unjustified given that the premises also houses a chocolate factory
Won't be missing a lot if you skip this! Once you enter, all you see are sections where you can read about how chocolates came about and information about plantation in different countries. There's no way to sugar coat it but it was a section where my kids just got BORED. It wasn't interesting or interactive in any way. Well, I mean what do you expect in a museum (not all museums are interactive) but there's just nothing catchy for the kids except for the samples probably. Then you move to the section where you see how chocolates are being done inside this machine. Again, nothing interesting at all. Then on the other floors, you will see more moulds and other types of chocolates. My kids even enjoyed the Heineken Experience in Amsterdam that this! My point being, we expected this place to be fun and we thought we would see unique and interesting items for the kids but it was the total opposite. Even the gift shop was not great. The stuff they are selling are something you can get from ordinary grocery or convenience stores. For 11.50 it is expensive because you don't really get a good experience.
Chocolate museum is operated by Lindt. A small working production plant is inside the museum. Museum experience - amazing. All information regarding birth and production of chocolate is displayed in the museum. Entry fees for tourists. Students get discounted entry passes.
