More than 100 years of chocolate delights – Costa Rica’s jungle at the Gendarmenmarkt

The Berlin chocolate manufacturer Rausch has been reinventing itself for more than 100 years and continues to claim the highest quality. At the Gendarmenmarkt, visitors to the Festival of Lights could enjoy the world of chocolate with all their senses. During the festival, a colourful jungle motif adorned the façade. A luminous hint of the origin of the fine cocoa used by Rausch. Inside, the world’s largest chocolate house presents its excellent creations on three floors. The plantation world awaits visitors on the first floor. Here, Rausch makes the subject of fine cocoa chocolate a sensual experience. With modern technology and exciting stories, the company awakens the desire for background knowledge on cocoa and pays tribute to the precious natural substance. The jungle motif was also very fitting, because the guests of the house can find themselves in the middle of Costa Rica in the adventure exhibition and today more than 50% of the country is covered with jungle again. For Berlin visitors, Rausch offers popular motifs of the German capital in chocolate on the ground floor in front of a multimedia wall as a perfect photo motif. You can see the Berlin chocolate skyline with Brandenburg Gate, television tower and Victory Column. In the Rausch Deli guests during the cold season can warm themselves up with a hot drinking chocolate and enjoy sweet, but also hearty chocolate creations. One can enjoy the view of one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, the Gendarmenmarkt, in the chocolate café, while in the glass patisserie chocolatiers produce the finest variations of fine cocoa from the company’s own plantations.
