Discover Cologne and its vibrant as well as historical districts of the old town with our CHOCOLATE-EXPRESS with destination “Chocolate Museum“. The first part of the round-trip starts at the Cologne Cathedral. The Mini-train runs through Cologne‘s small streets surrounded by the typical small houses, local breweries and some of the most beautiful Romanesque churches of the Old Town District before the first stop is reached – the “Chocolate Museum“ located right at the newly restructured Rheinauhafen Waterfront district at the Rhine River.

This young district – the former harbor of Cologne, features a variety of inviting bars, restaurants and cafe shops. Museums, galleries and impressive futuristic looking architecture like the three crane buildings, called “Kranhäuser” right beside historical landmark monuments, make the Rheinauhafen District definitely a place to visit.

The second part of the round-trip runs along the Upper Old Town District and features Cologne‘s historical buildings such as the “Gürzenich“ – the former market hall, the City Hall of Cologne and many more sightseeing features, before it returns to the Cologne Cathedral.

A single trip to the “Chocolate Museum“ is available as well but neither includes the second part of the round-trip nor the return to the Cologne Cathedral.
