For well over a century, this confectionary has been providing Berliners with sinfully delicious chocolates, pralines and truffles. Their large Gendarmenmarkt shop offers loose chocolates and handmade treats, as well as divine boxed selections of nearly every variety imaginable. Customers can also admire scale models of the Brandenburg Gate, the German Bundestag and even the Titanic—all created from rich dark chocolate, of course.
Those who prefer their chocolate in meal form can head upstairs to the Schokoladen-Restaurant—billed as the first of its kind in Europe and where talented chefs host cooking seminars and dinner shows surrounding themes like “Viva Arriba” and “Treasure Island Tobago,” sourcing cocoa from specific regions. Fassbender & Rausch’s immense selection of sweet delights ensures that even the most discerning chocolate gourmand will find something to satisfy their appetite for the royal bean.
