Autor: Katharina Hogrebe

On 31 October 2018, the Chocolate Museum in Cologne turns 25 and will be celebrating with the first ever “Chocolatiers’ Market”. From 14 to 18 November 2018, 50 chocolate specialists from Germany and abroad will be demonstrating their skills and displaying their products in front of the Museum. Chocolatiers and manufacturers from Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Belgium, Poland, Lithuania and Ecuador will be presenting a wide variety of creations such as hand-made chocolate bars, pralines, chocolate creams, even chocolate beers and chocolate drops with flavours such as spicy and exotic. Vegan and sugar-free sweets will also be available. Another programme highlight will be the art of cocoa painting, and visitors will be able to find out how they can make their own chocolate confectionery.

The museum, which was founded by the Cologne businessman and “chocolate king” Dr. Hans Imhoff, attracts around 600,000 visitors every year and is one of the most visited cultural institutions in Cologne. In an area encompassing more than 4,000 square meters, the exhibition presents the history of chocolate from the “ambrosia” of the Aztecs through to the modern industrial product. As well as information about the cocoa plant, it displays exhibits from the pre-Columbian cultures of Central America together with an important porcelain and silver collection from the Baroque period and numerous old machines from the age of industrialisation. The exhibition highlights are the tropical house open to visitors in which a cocoa tree is growing among the other vegetation, a large chocolate fountain, and the glass-fronted chocolate factory.
