Berlin - Chocolate

You cannot go to Berlin and not visit Fassbender & Rausch, the Worlds Largest Chocolate House.  Not only do they have an amazing array of sweets to buy but they have some amazing chocolate models.

Upstairs there is a cafe with scrummy chocolate cakes.

And it really was scrummy


  1. Okay, you got me on this one - didn't know about it! Looks fantastic, though - I'd love to see the models!

  2. Oh, forgot to ask - do they replace them from time to time or are they the same ones all the time? Does chocolate go off...?

  3. The large models are very shiney and look very sickly, not sure if they cover them in something to keep them.

  4. The models just look out of this world & can't believe that you ate that cake!
