“Mustard ... what else?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

The Senf Museum is conveniently located immediately across from the Lindt Chocolate Museum and likely gets most of it's business from curious foot traffic associated to that attraction. As museums go, it's not much more than a few old mustard presses with a big storefront where one can buy copious ... mustards, what else?

We naturally tried all the assortments of mustards and were delighted enough with them to have purchased 4 different types, with one as a gift for a fellow 'senf-lover.' Oddly, several (if not most) of the mustards were not produced on site, leaving us to wonder if there aren't other Mustard Museums out there waiting to be stumbled-upon.

As mustards go - they really are quite good. My uber-favorite is without compare the Cayenne Mustard ... mmmm so spicy. The Kolsh Bier-made mustard was good as well, and the local favorite, the "Historisch Senf" rounded out our selections.

Save room for a Bratwurst and stop by on your way out of the Chocolate factory ... after all, who else can say they've stopped at a historic Mustard Museum?

“Nice little stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

We were visiting our friends in Cologne and they suggested we go to the Mustard Museum. When we arrived, we had just missed the last tour of the day. It was fun tasting all the different mustards and walking around the little shop. We bought some to take home with us and also some as gifts. The sausage was also very good. Nice little visit, but you don't need much time there if you don't go on the tour.

“Wanted to do the tour but couldn't...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

My husband is a mustard fanatic, so we thought this would be a nice, quirky tour on which to go. However, when we arrived we were told that the tour is only in German (with a less-than-perfect English audio guide to accompany it). Plus, they don't give tours unless they have a certain number of people.

Too bad because it seems like it would've been interesting.

In the end, we bought some of their homemade mustard and left.

“Good Mustard --But that's it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

After reading reviews, we were excited to go to the museum. However, after getting there we were unable to communicate with the people working there except to try and buy a couple of the delicious mustards.
