Maestrani’s Chocolarium

The Chocolarium chocolate museum by Maestrani centers on smelling, tasting and enjoying chocolate.

The name Maestrani has stood for exquisite chocolate creations since 1852. At Maestrani’s Chocolarium – the Chocolate Factory of Happiness – the history of chocolate is brought alive in a fascinating Experience World for young and old alike.

Whether independently or on a guided tour, guests can explore the interactive zone and discover where chocolate comes from and how it is produced. They also have the chance to view chocolate being produced live. What’s more, sampling is actively encouraged! At the end of the tour, for a small surcharge, a show confiseur will mold a fresh bar of chocolate, which guests can decorate as they wish.

Besides a movie theater, a cafe and chocolate molding courses, during which guests can make their own chocolate creations, sweet-toothed visitors can purchase their favorite chocolate products from the factory shop.

“He who sees the world through the eyes of a chocolate lover will find true beauty and happiness.” Aquilino Maestrani, founder and chocolate pioneer, 1814-1880
