Who doesn’t like chocolate? Zaandam is also called the Walhalla for chocolate lovers. This makes Zaandam the perfect place for Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate factory with a roller coaster. Chocolate is tasty and healthy to eat. Chocolate has been around for hundreds of years and is available in all shapes, sizes and flavours. On September 13 is a day devoted to this amazing sweetness with the World Chocolate Day.
There is also a World Chocolate Day that is celebrated on July 7, the day on which chocolate was first introduced to Europe in 1550. The true enthusiast naturally has no objection to these days in honour of this world’s most beloved product. Zaandam is not the only place where you can enjoy delicious chocolate. You can also enjoy this delicious treat in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Utrecht and Rotterdam.
There are many chocolate stores in Amsterdam. Here you can find the real Amsterdam sights made in chocolate into the most delicious bonbons. Even places where you can completely immerse yourself in chocolate and enjoy chocolate fondue in the dark. The Chocoa Festival Amsterdam takes place every year in February, a two-day festival that is all about chocolate. Here you can discover everything about chocolate and you can participate in tastings, workshops, attend presentations and meet your favourite chocolate makers. As you can see there are quite a lot of places where you can celebrate World Chocolate Day in Amsterdam.
In Eindhoven, Hilfrawa, in particular, is highly recommended for lovers of this brown gold. This is the smallest chocolate factory in the Netherlands. This family business is very popular in Eindhoven. In addition to sausage rolls and cheese, you can also find delicious chocolate in this city.
You can also find various places in Utrecht where you can optimally celebrate World Chocolate Day. The Dom Tower is the most famous landmark in Utrecht. But there are also many chocolate stores where this special attraction can be found edible. If you visit the city by train or go shopping in Hoog Catharijne, you will immediately come across various stores filled with chocolate.
Coffee, tea and more than 20 different chocolate can be found in the large store nJoy Chocolate. You will find the first chocolatiers within a 10-15 minute walk from Inntel Hotels Rotterdam Centre and Mainport.
If you are not coming to one of the above cities on September the 13th during World Chocolate Day, you will have to wait until July 7, 2020. But it is already a nice prospect and you can already start with good preparations.
