At a chocolate tasting at Chocoversum by HACHEZ your taste buds will succumb to a dark temptation of a special kind: Chocolate. During a 90-minute guided tour you will gain insights into the cultivation, varieties, extraction and processing of cocoa into chocolate. The highlight of the tour is the chocolate factory, where you can make your own chocolate bar according to your own preferences. Have you always wanted to try gummy bears in chocolate with chilli flakes? You can do it here! Of course you can also try different chocolate forms at all stations of the tour. Yummmm!

A touch of exoticism blows through the Spice Museum in the Speichertsadt. Here, you can sniff exotic spices from all over the world: Cocoa from South America? It's there! Coffee from Guatemala? Sure, no question about it. Saffron from India? Logical! Haven't you heard yet? Then you shouldn't put off a visit to the spice museum any more. In addition to much information on the topic, you can of course also touch and try here. Delicious!

Between 1850 and 1934, Hamburg was the gateway to a new world full of possibilities and a new life on the other side of the Atlantic for 5 million people. The BallinStadt Emigration Museum offers comprehensive insights into this eventful epoch of the Hanseatic City. One of Hamburg's most popular museums is now located on the old harbour grounds, where travellers had to wait up to three weeks for their departure. The stories of emigrants, their personal fates and also the challenges before, during and after the journey are presented in a varied, interactive and especially vivid way.
