Third generation Edouard Hirsinger is one of the most famous chocolatiers in France. All the delicious chocolates are made on the premises with some very inventive recipes and chocolate works of art. Fabulous range of cakes and pastries too. A visit to this beautiful shop is usually a hugely expensive experience. Just before Easter or Christmas, the offerings are simply jaw-dropping. Snacks and drinks are also available all day for consumption at small tables outside, but under the arches. A small museum is open by appointment and well worth a visit to learn about fine chocolate production.

Useful information: Open all day till 19.00. Museum entry: €3 credited if sufficient purchases made (hard to resist)!
