10th Annual Schokoladenfestival in Tübingen

chocolART in Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg is the biggest international chocolate festival in Germany. From the 1st till the 6th of December you can attend chocoMarkt, chocolateROOMS, chocoFAIR as well as to see the chocoART exhibition. Festival has an event program that can be found online. The streets in the old city center where the festival takes place are quite narrow, so be prepared for the squash.

Festival attracts many tourists and Germans from all over the country. The chocolate is tasty, but overpriced. 🙂 The best part though is that the entrance to the festival is free of charge, and you are allowed to take pictures and try some chocolate.

In the evening, when the sky is dark (on the day I visited it was 5pm), the special lights come up. The old buildings by Rathaus are covered with the colorful  lights that makes the atmosphere of the festival a bit magical. In my view, this is the best time of the day to visit the festival. Give it a try!
