Towards the end of a day's exploration of Cologne, including a lengthy visit to its amazing Cathedral, we made our way to Rheinau harbor directly in front of the old town. Here we went to a special destination, the Lindt Schokaladen (Chocolate) Museum.
We crossed the old swing bridge and approached this attractive modern building. The museum has exhibits on everything you could ever want to know about chocolate but unfortunately we did not have time to explore it that day. Instead, we were there for a cup of their famous hot chocolate served in the museum's Chocolat Grand Café. It was delicious!
And with windows all around the Café, panoramic views of the Rhine are terrific -- but nothing beats the hot chocolate!
