fine chocolates, this store may even be worth a trip to the city! When you first set foot inside the doors, you're greeted with an overwhelmingly delicious scent of chocolate. How I wish these smells could be bottled! Part of this is due to the giant candy carvings that are rotated to match the season. Since it was the spring, I saw a several foot tall bunny as well as handcrafted chocolate versions of the Brandenburg Gate, the TV tower, and an "active" chocolate volcano that bubbled and spewed real melted chocolate! Luckily these sculptures are in plain view so you can even peek through the windows after closing. They are works of art, and photography is encouraged! The shop boasts the "world's largest praline counter" with over 200 different types of pralines. There are also what seems like miles of gorgeous truffles (almost too pretty to eat -- ALMOST) and mini tortes. For the kiddos, you can select from pre-wrapped candies shaped like teddy bears and more, and there are lots of classy looking gift boxes to purchase as souvenirs for friends and family back home. My favorite area of the store is the by the pound chocolate almond bark, so delicious and the perfect way to get just the amount you want without having any waste. This works like a department store and you can either purchase your selections at each individual department counter or collect them in a basket and pay all at once before you exit. This is a chocolate lover's paradise and is not to be missed.

Wow! This place is heaven. The world's largest chocolate shop did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in, you are surrounded by unbelievably huge statues made of chocolate, all sorts of treats to suit every taste imaginable, and to top it off, you are treated like a VIP, especially when choosing individual chocolates at the counter.

My first visit here was just before Christmas 2016, and although it was busy the atmosphere was wonderful. I chose to purchase a box of chocolates that I chose individually from the counter and the selection of unusual flavours was amazing. Prickly pear, balsamic, sea buckthorn to name a few. I like to try new flavours so this was enjoyable for me.

I did venture upstairs as I fancied a few moments to relax in the cafe and have a hot chocolate however the que for a seat was long (to be expected a week before Christmas). This said, whilst I waited in line, I was treated to free chocolates by the chocolatier which were just DEVINE!

Don't miss this place when visiting Berlin! Just don't

Not exactly a museum, but this chocolate shop is of course the best shop in Berlin, but also the place where you can admire exact replicas of the most famous monuments of Berlin, all made of delicious chocolate. Weird, funny and tasty too (but do not touch the monuments, please).

This is billed as the "Largest Chocolaterie in the World" It has a restaurant, cafe and shop with a tremendous array of chocolate items. They also have demos and a dinner show. If you like chocolate you have entered the mother ship. Don't forget to see the large sculptures made entirely out of chocolate.

Fassbender & Rausch make some delicious chocolate. Fassbender opened his shop in the mid 1800s, Rausch in the early 1900s -- they joined forces in 1999 to form the "Largest Chocolaterie in the world". Do your shopping downstairs, and visit the giant replicas of Berlin's sights (Reichstag, Fernsehturm, Brandenburg Gate) made entirely out of chocolate. Afterwards, pop upstairs and indulge your sweet-tooth in the cafe. If you want to eat in the restaurant you'll likely need a reservation.

This was a fun stop on my tour of Berlin, with really cool chocolate sculptures and of course TONS of chocolate to buy. A definite attraction for chocolate-lovers, but great for anyone. After all, how often do you get to see a Titanic model in chocolate??

Vergiss Nutella! Bei Rausch findest du Schokoladensorten, von denen du noch nie zu Träumen gewagt hast. Außerdem gibt es alle möglichen tollen Schoko-Skulpturen zu bestauenen: Vom Fußball bis zum Brandenburger Tor. Unbedingt eine heiße Schokolade trinken - am besten mit Chili!
