The Belgian Chocolate Makers

Did you know that chocolate contains dopamine, serotonin and endorphins?

These are substances that have a positive effect on your stress level and mood. If you are looking for a new chocolate experience, a corporate teambuilding, a walking dinner, a private chocolate workshop, a kids birthday party or a birthday to celebrate, an unique bachelorette  party or simply an original family activity during a public or premium workshop, then book an entertaining event with us in the biggest chocolate workshop in Brussels.

I am waiting to welcome you at The Belgian Chocolate Makers !

A great place for visitors

For many years we work with a lot of tour operators operating in Belgium and in particular in Brussels to propose to their clients some exciting moments at our place. We organize visits for several travel agencies including Liebigschule GieBen, American Express Travel Services, IDEAL Meetings & Events, Appina Travel, Behringer TouristikBravo Discovery, CTS ReisenFocus Flanders, Reisen Gansberger, Grimm TouristikReise Touristik Travex, SIR Touristik, Stadtfuehrung and many more…

During the visit, we welcome the tourists with a hot chocolate and start with a short movie explaining the origins of the chocolate and why Belgian chocolate is famous. Our Chocolate Master is then proposing a demo about tempering and the tourists can understand what is this essential method and why it is necessary to have a tempered chocolate.

After that demo, the tourists can taste many different chocolates and finally enjoy our store. A fantastic way to experience a great chocolate moment with us !
