The Museum of Chocolate. The Museum of Chocolate is located on the peninsula in a big house, officially it's called Imhoff-Schokoladen-Museum. There the whole history of chocolate for 3000 years of its existence is showed. The museum was opened in 1993 and at those times it was the 1st museum of chocolate. In the end of the excursion you can always try the exhibits by dipping a waffle into a chocolate fountain. But keep in mind that on Mondays the museum is closed.
The City Hall. The first documental record about the City Hall as 'The Citizen House' belongs to the period of 1135-1152. When the city got the status of a free city-country, it was decided to build a tower on the City Hall. The tower has late gothic style and it's decorated with more than 130 stone statues. It is the building, where the well-known 'Platz-Jabbec' takes place (it's a cut out face, which opens its month and shows to everyone its tongue every time the currants go). In 1569 William Fernukker added a Renaissance outhouse to the front. This City Hall bower was saved during the world war; unfortunately we can't say the same about the building of the City Hall, which was destroyed by the fire. Its reconstruction became the symbol of the revival of life. In 1950 the Cologne craftsmen created the 'workshop of builders and stone dressers for the City Hall reconstruction'.
