Chocolate walking tour of Antwerp

Why do you sometimes feel the urge to bite into a bar of chocolate? A glossy chunk of happiness that melts on your tongue ... During this tour, you’ll discover the fascinating story of the origins of chocolate and the wonderful qualities ascribed to it. You’ll find out more about the rich history of this product: from a valuable currency in the time of the Aztecs to a delicacy enjoyed at the royal court and the ideal gift to win the heart of the one you love. The history of the ‘praline’, the chocolate invented by a Belgian in 1912 and still made using traditional methods, will also be explained. We’ll call in at some specialist chocolatiers, including The Chocolate Line in the Palace on the Meir, Neuhaus in the Wilde Zee, Marcolini and chocolate maker by royal appointment Mary. On the way, you’ll get the opportunity to try some delicious Belgian pralines.
