The Chocolate Museum is a food production facility. Therefore Dogs are not permitted inside the museum.
The museum is located between the old town and the Rheinau harbour.
The Chocolate Museum is easy to find, conveniently located on the riverbank of Cologne’s old town. Located on a pier head at the Rheinau harbour peninsula, the river runs past us on both sides.
You can reach us the easiest on foot. Starting from the old town and the cathedral, head south along the river (upstream) and once you’ve passed the ships at the jetties we’re just a short, direct walk ahead. The museum is approximately 500 meters from the "Kölner Pegel" – a small building located near the Deutzer bridge indicating the current river level in Cologne.
The Malakoff Tower, which stands directly in front of the museum, serves as a handy point of orientation. Even at a distance, the Chocolate Museum is easily recognizable.
Follow the main road along the Rhine embankment. As you approach the museum this road becomes the Holzmarkt.
Our address is “Am Schokoladenmuseum 1a”. As many satellite navigation systems do not recognise this address, we recommend that you type in either “Holzmarkt” or “Rheinauhafen”.
Parking is available very close to the museum. Use the underground carpark “Rheinauhafen”. There are three entrances on the main road along the Rhine embankment: one in the vicinity of the “Südbrücke”, another in the building of the law firm “Luther”, which is in near the tram line crossing, and a third at Bayenturm near the harbour offices.
The underground car park is very long so drive to the end of the red zone and use the final staircase, 1.01. An elevator can be found at exit 1.03.
Further car parks can be found in the “Maritim” hotel and beneath the Heumarkt. It is only a short walk (500m) from there along the Rhine embankment to the museum.
With the “Schoko-Express” mini railway
Even the journey to the Cologne Chocolate Museum can be a special experience – with Wolters’ “SCHOKO-Express”.
The “SCHOKO-Express” runs daily every 30 minutes from the “Burgmauer” (besides the Cologne Tourist Office) near the Cologne cathedral (Dom). The train travels through the old town, along the Rhine embankment, until it reaches the Chocolate Museum, where you can make a stop to visit us. After your visit, you can jump back onto the “Schoko-Express” and travel back through the upper old town towards the cathedral.
With the open-top double-decker bus
Turn a sightseeing tour into an experience aboard CityTour, Cologne’s open-top double-decker bus. You can hop on and hop off at the Chocolate Museum.
Discover Cologne with Stadtrundfahrt.com
Discover the city by land or river, by bus or boat.
Combine your visit to the Chocolate Museum with a panoramic tour aboard the Rhine’s “white fleet”, the passenger ships provided by KölnTourist.
By bus and train
You can reach the Chocolate Museum from Cologne Central Station using the bus line 133.
This bus line connects the Chocolate Museum to the city’s rail network, providing connections to the stops Chlodwigplatz, Ubiering and Heumarkt. Multiple tram and underground lines can be reached from these stops.
The "Schokoladenmuseum" taxi stand can be found directly in front of the museum on Holzmarkt, the main road along the Rhine embankment. In the event that no taxi is available, just call one of the following Cologne taxi companies:
Cologne’s first rickshaw stop is located directly in front of the Chocolate Museum by the historic swing bridge (Drehbrücke). The rickshaw drivers inform you about the notable sights you’ll encounter along the fascinating and diverse trip.
