Emphasizing the art of confection, the shop's selection combines craftsmanship with imagination – milk, white and dark chocolate cordially meet every worthy kind of nut, fruit, spice and even flower. Constantly seeking out and developing pieces, the owners ensure that there are always new delights to discover on the shelves. Every Christmas, Winterfeldt Schokoladen designs its own new and modern take on traditional advent calendar. A business unquestionably built and run on love of chocolate, the aficionados behind the store are extremely generous in sharing their knowledge and even offer occasional classes.
