The Imhoff-Stollwerck Chocolate Museum, Cologne, Germany
Germany isn't known for its chocolate, but its people have always had a penchant for the sweet stuff - at the turn of the century, Germany was processing more cocoa beans than any other country in the world (19,242 tonnes to be precise).
This Cologne museum was opened by a former locksmith and chocoholic, Hans Imhoff, who grew up just a few metres away from the city's Stollwerck factory. The museum is home to a vast range of vintage vending machines and rare chocolate boxes, along with a three-metre-high Lindt chocolate fountain (pictured).
