Ger chocolART: Europe's Tastiest Festival

Swiss pralines and Belgian truffles, pairing beer with chocolate and cooking with chocolate: there are dozens of ways to seduce your palate at Germany's largest chocolate festival - chocolART in Tübingen in SouthWest Germany.

At the end of November, this historic university town, just south of Stuttgart, celebrates the arrival of winter with the six day chocolART Festival (Nov 29-Dec 4). Devoted to chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, this annual gourmet gathering takes place on the ancient main square of one of Europe's prettiest towns. With its old Town Hall and half-timbered houses, it looks like the setting for a fairy tale. At night, colourful pictures projected onto the old buildings make it even more magical.

Germany's finest Meister-Chocolatiers are on hand with delicious examples of their craft, as are Master Chocolatiers from ten more countries around the world, including Belgium, Austria, France, Switzerland, Italy and even Colombia. In all, some 100 specialists in the art of making chocolates will be on hand.

But chocolART offers more than just dark and milk chocolate. There are chocolates flavoured with chilli, anti-stress pralines and even cheese matured with chocolate! Local restaurants offer Chocolate, Dine & Wine menus, while tasting sessions pair chocolate with malt whisky. Workshops give master classes on making pralines, cooking with chocolate and making marvellous things with marzipan - even how to paint your car with chocolate!

SPECIAL for grown ups: chocolate not only melts in the mouth. At the Hotel Krone, relax with a chocolate massage, the perfect stress buster in the run up to the festive season!

SPECIAL for children: Ritter Sport (a SouthWest Germany company) has a mobile chocolate factory for children!

For a sweet alternative to Christmas markets, think Tübingen, think chocolate, think chocolART.

November 29 through December 4.

Hours: Tuesday to Friday 10am-8pm; Saturday 10am-midnight; Sunday 9am-7.30pm.
