HISTORY OF THE BRUSSELS CHOCOLATE MUSEUM
Opened at the end of last September, the Belgian Chocolate Village is the new temple of the Belgian chocolate and a must-see visit for all chocolatiers who cannot miss the opportunity to learn all the secrets of one of the most typical Belgian products.
Located in the Brussels neighbourhood of Koekelberg, near the great Basilica of the same name, this new chocolate “city" is the largest Belgian museum today to be dedicated to chocolate and one of the largest ones in Europe.
THE LARGEST MUSEUM OF CHOCOLATE IN BELGIUM
This 900 square metre space, located in the premises of the old chocolate and biscuits factory Victoria in Koekelberg, now houses the museum Belgian Chocolate Village. Thus, it recovers the "sweet" past of this historic site with the reuse of its rooms, where chocolate becomes once again the star.
The museum offers visitors a journey through the history of cocoa, its periods and key continents, the different steps that are necessary for the manufacture of chocolate, its healthy uses or its diversity. There is even a tropical greenhouse in the museum, with a cocoa tree and other exotic plants that coexist in the same habitat. Additionally, there is a tasting room and a chocolate atelier. Children will also enjoy the visit with special activities planned throughout the museum tour, which will make the walk an interactive meeting.
Next to the chocolate museum you will find the outlet of Godiva in Brussels, a perfect place to buy an excellent chocolate with a cheaper price than in the city centre.
