Fassbender & Rausch

Fassbender & Rausch

Welcome to the first chocolate restaurant in Europe. Here, the entire menu, rather than just the usual last page, is devoted to chocolate products. Hence, the meal starts and finishes with dessert. Next door is a chocolate shop which, among other things, is the world's largest. You probably won't find such a wide range of chocolate sweets anywhere else. Fassbender & Rausch prides itself at using only the highest quality cacao from Papua New Guinea, Venezuela, Ecuador, Trinidad and Tobago, Peru, Madagascar and Costa Rica.

Fassbender & Rausch is an institution with a history, its beginnings reaching back to1863, when Heinrich Fassbender began to make the tastiest chocolate in Berlin. Wilhelm Rausch opened his first pastry goods shop 27 years later. Finally, in 1999, Berlin's contemporary chocolate tradition commenced with both families joining forces under one name in one of the most beautiful corners of the city the Gendarmenmarkt. Sit down, drink a cup of coffee and taste an unbelievably diverse bouquet of chocolate flavours. Fassbender & Rausch has a bit of a frivolous aspect to it as well, with chocolate models of Berlin's Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and the "unsinkable" Titanic in a much smaller form. There are also some sweetly banal things, like the city's symbol - a large bear.
