Experience chocolate

Our shop is in one of the iconic historical buildings in the heart of Ghent, just around the corner of the Gravensteen castle. Dating back to the 16th century, this building is the perfect place to experience chocolate in an authentic setting. Three mouth-watering chocolate experiences are waiting for you…

Private chocolate tasting Ghent

– A fully private and personal experience: one of the two founders of the Chocolade Ambassade personally leads the tasting, fully committed to your group.

– Different chocolate makers in one place: with so many chocolate shops in Belgium, it can be difficult & time-consuming to find the right quality. During this tasting you will try chocolate of different top chocolatiers, from all over Belgium: an easy way to discover which style of chocolate fits you best.

– 3 activities in one: as you will learn a ton of facts about Belgian chocolate & cacao, this tasting is the perfect alternative (or addition) to visiting a chocolate museum. Afterwards, there is also an opportunity to do some chocolate shopping if you wish to do so.

– In the heart of Ghent: the Chocolade Ambassade is located in the historic centre of Ghent, around the corner of the Gravensteen castle & a 5-min walk from Graslei & Korenlei. This means the tasting can be easily combined with a day of sightseeing.
