If you're a chocolate lover then Tübingen in South-West Germany is the place to visit this winter. From December 5th - 10th 2017 this medieval German town becomes Europe's capital of Chocolate. The chocolART festival celebrates everything chocolate, from tasting to making and much more. Visitors can see chocolate in all shapes, sizes and flavours. Of course, you can make your very own chocolate and meet chocolate makers from Europe, Africa and North and South America to truly get a full chocolate experience. As well as this you can also enjoy chocolate in many other ways, such as able to enjoy chocolate drinks, therapeutic chocolate massages, painting with coca and even cosy down and watch some chocolate-inspired theatre. In the chocolateROOM on Tubingen’s marketplace, top chocolatiers will be creating intricate chocolate sculptures for all to admire. And if you fancy learning a bit of history you can join in with the chocolate workshop where children and adults can learn about the journey from bean to bar. It's not just milk chocolate that will be focused on at this festival. There will also be exotic chocolate, organic chocolate, as well as fair trade, vegan and sugar free chocolate. There will be something for everyone! The city of Tübingen during this time will be transformed into a winter wonderland. At night, you should take a stroll through the old street, which will be magically lit up. During the chocolART festival on Saturday December 9th the shops in the city will be staying open until 11pm. Tübingen is known for its one-of-a-kind shops which include goldsmiths, jewellers and potters. This gives you the perfect opportunity to get those special Christmas gifts!
