In fact the Imhoff-Schokoladenmuseum is with 650.000 visitors each year the most visited museum of Köln and one of the ten most visited museums in Germany.

It was opened in 1993 after twenty years of planning. Chocolate producer Hans Imhoff, owner of the well-known company Stollwerck found different interesting historical items when his company moved. It was then decided to find a place to create a museum. When you visit the exhibition you can learn a lot about the history and the production of chocolate.

And you can taste some chocolate from a chocolate fountain. The production partner is Lindt & Sprüngli from Switzerland, in the museum shop you can by sweeties from Hussel.
