Hamburg is the German chocolate capital. Every year 150,000 tons of cocoa are imported to Germany via the port of Hamburg. When you have a sweet tooth you can see for yourself how the bitter beans are turned into sweet gold at the CHOCOVERSUM.
And the best thing is: you can taste and try out everything! Each tour starts at the Chocoholic-Checkpoint, the 1,43 m chocolate tasting fountain and for the next 90 minutes you will learn everything about cocoa - from growing the beans to trading and processing. The different topics are covered at several stations and complemented by impressive exhibits and photos. Every production step is demonstrated live at the original machines while visitors can taste and smell for themselves to see how melting texture and taste evolve. The absolute highlight is creating your individual chocolate bar with top-quality ingredients that you can take home after the tour.
After your tour you can indulge in our chocolate shop where you can buy everything that has to do with chocolate. Our selection includes everything from pralines to Danish spiced chocolate and from body care products with cocoa butter to chocolate beer and chocolate mustard.
