As it is World Chocolate Day I would like to show you some chocolate shops in Berlin. Lets celebrate chocolate especially the chocolate shops in Berlin, which makes this sweetener accessible to us.
Bring Berlin back home with a box of pralines or specialty candy from one of Berlin's top chocolate shops. These boutiques offer exceptional chocolate and can be found only in Berlin. Chocolates make great Valentine's Day and anniversary presents, but you can also enjoy something sweet while you are discovering Berlin.
Here are my Top 5 chocolate shops in Berlin. If you want to get to know Berlin and more hidden gems, you can also pick of one my maps, preferable my BertaBerlin map.
With a PARS praliné you hold a very special delicacy in your hands, which stands for sensual seduction, as well as for a moment of pause. For enjoyment to unfold in all its dimensions, the ingredients are invaluable. The praliné is produced in the spirit of a sustainable agriculture. Except for few ingredients they get all the ingredients from farmers in the Berlin area. With PARS pralinés the artist Kristiane Kegelmann creates (abstract) individual chocolate with exciting flavor compositions by hand. At the moment you can get this gems in her chocolate shop online, but soon they will be available at KaDeWe.

Dubenkropp Pralinen & Schokoladen is a chocolate shop with a glassy chocolate atelier, where you can buy very delicate handmade truffles, enjoy a tasty hot chocolate or cappuccino in a warm atmosphere or take a workshop.

Preußisch süß („Prussian sweet“) combines my love for chocolate as well as my sociological interest in Berlin. The 22 chocolate flavors try to catch the character and spirit of Berlin‘s different districts. Here you can figure out, how Moabit, Kreuzberg and other districts of Berlin taste like! To make the choose easier the chocolate bars are named like „Kreuzberg“ or „Prenzlauer Berg“. My personal highlight is that the chocolate bar „Wedding“ is partly out of beer!

Cookies & Co

Just by looking at all these chocolate options, here you can enjoy something sweet while you're touring through Berlin. Chocolate and cocoa is from Callebaut and comes from Belgium. My favorite in this shop is the chocolate shot (cold or hot chocolate in a cookie form). Only in Berlin.
