Chocolate Tour & Tasting

Tour Overview

Experience the best highlights of Cologne—the Cathedral & the Chocolate Museum—on one single guided tour! This 3 hour experience includes a city walk, visiting the major attractions like the Dom and City Hall. Discover one of Germany’s most storied cities with a rich 2,000 year history. 

Then groups will walk to the Chocolate Museum to learn and taste the magic of chocolate production. Art of Touring has an exclusive partnership with the Chocolate Museum that allows our tour guides to lead groups inside the museum.

Groups will learn all about cocoa and the global journey cocoa goes on before it becomes the delicious bars of chocolate we know and love. Visit a working chocolate factory to see the bean-to-bar process in action. The tour culminates with a private chocolate tasting where groups will sample 4 different types of chocolate.

Cologne’s Altstadt does not spread out over a large area, so this walking tour is appropriate for all skill and fitness levels. The route can be adjusted to accommodate gentle walkers or families with young children. The museum is handicap accessible with lifts and elevators. 


Minimal hills or elevation


Each of our tour guides takes a slightly different approach to their walking tours of the Cologne’s Altstadt. They highlight unique stories and perspectives, giving each tour an individual flair. Every tour will stop at Cologne’s key locations, including the Altermarkt, Cologne Cathedral and Fishmarkt. Smaller stops, such as the Farinas Fragrance Museum or Hohenzollern bridge, will vary by guide.
