All aboard the Chocolate Express – Cologne

Created: 06 February 2017

With its pretty riverside setting, characterful cobbled streets and superb selection of bars and restaurants, Cologne has much to commend it. For sweet-toothed visitors, however, a major draw has to be the city’s World of Chocolate Museum, easily reached on foot or by hopping aboard the delightfully named Chocolate Express (Bimmelbahn) mini train. A three-night break over Easter costs from £500 pp (two sharing) including rail travel from London to Cologne, B&B and a Köln card, giving free transport in the city and discounts at an array of museums, galleries, shops and eating places.
