There are many chocolateries, but this one is special. Only seasonal fruit and herbs are used for the pralines and truffles, made lovingly by hand. Artificial colours and flavours are taboo! The love for the product, which you can taste in every bite, gave the owner the title of ‘Vize German Chocolate Master 2015.’

TV presenter and chef Dave Hänsel has been touring Germany’s weekly markets with food stands for years.

Eisfeld in Cologne is part of a completely new culture of indulgence that works with sustainable, seasonable products without artificial additives. And the ices taste so irresistibly good that there’s sometimes a large queue in the summer time. But don’t worry, the friendly staff work quickly and the ice cream is well worth the short wait!
