Hot chocolate in the Burg Café Bad Belzig

“You should definitely try the hot chocolate in the Burg Café Bad Belzig in Eisenhardt Castle! ”I didn't have anyone tell me this twice after our hike in the Hoher Fläming Nature Park. Hot chocolate always sounds good, especially when it is made from real chocolate. In any case, this is what the host praises. After a look at the cake counter, chocolate does not only play a role in this tiny café in drinkable form.




The Burg-Café Bad Belzig

First of all, we have a hard time finding the café. Our navigation device points us to Wittenberger Str. 14 in Bad Belzig. There stands the imposing Eisenhardt Castle, which is still surrounded by a moat today. In the gate a door leads to the museum entrance. There you can also pay the entrance, if you want to climb the castle tower. We are after ours Hike through the castle park of Wiesenburg Castle and on the Art trail through the Fläming however tired. Therefore we give ourselves the ascent. Instead, we are looking for a good cup of hot chocolate, which was announced as particularly delicious. Of course we do not want to miss that.

When we enter the castle courtyard, we immediately notice the set tables in the square in front of the castle hotel. However, we don't see any guests there. Rather, a young man is busy cleaning the tables. When asked where the castle café is, he points to an inconspicuous little house on the other side of the castle courtyard. There are a few people sitting at a few tables in front of it. All are occupied. So we try our luck inside the café despite the sunshine that still warms the castle courtyard in mid-September.

Plush, cozy atmosphere in the Burg Café Bad Belzig

The two rooms that the castle café offers its guests are tiny. Inside we have a choice. We can either sit on a plush sofa or have an entire room to ourselves. There is a table with numerous chairs. However, I wonder whether these are ever documented. Because it's tight in here. It will be difficult to fill all the seats. Once you have sat down, you have to wait until the room empties if you want to go out again. However, since no one but us wants to go in here, we take a seat on the two chairs at the entrance.

Just as in the other room, it exudes an atmosphere of bygone times. A thick blanket lies on the table, waiting for the artistically carved chairs to score. The lamps on the walls are reminiscent of Art Nouveau times. The candlestick, which stands in the middle of the table, fits in with this.

Nostalgia in the Burg Café

The innkeeper looks in briefly: "Have you already ordered?" We deny and order two cups of hot chocolate. We have to choose cakes at the cake counter. Here, too, it quickly becomes clear that chocolate is not only served in a drinkable form in this café. I order a piece of chocolate cake that looks particularly tempting.

It only takes a few minutes and the landlady brings us two thick-walled cups, which alone are worth a visit to the café. A porcelain elephant stares at me as I turn the handle towards me. I only know cups like this from flea markets or old antique shops that sell everything from the past. I find her wonderfully quirky.

Immediately afterwards, the landlord comes back a second time and puts a huge piece of chocolate cake in front of me that makes me swallow. I'm glad we only ordered one of them. So Petar can help me to consume this calorie bomb.

The finest hot chocolate at Burg Café Bad Belzig

And then comes the moment of truth. The first sip of hot chocolate from the elephant cup! What a poem! Now I'm no longer surprised why everyone raves about this cafe. Melted chocolate runs thickly down my throat and warms my palate. It leaves you with a feeling of happiness, as chocolate is always said to do. Until now, however, I have never felt this as intensely as I did at this moment. Pleasant well-being spreads through me and I could sit here for hours just to sip this divine chocolate. You can taste the fact that real chocolate is used in every sip. The usual cocoa milk doesn't flow through my mouth here. Instead, a thick chocolate crema caresses my tongue and flows gently and slowly down into my stomach, warming it pleasantly. It almost feels as if she wants to make me aware of every inch of the way through this pleasant feeling.

Hot chocolate recipe - make it yourself with real chocolate

Since we rarely get in Brandenburg Since we got a taste for the Burg Café in Bad Belzig, we often make our own hot chocolate. With real chocolate, because that's the only way it tastes so tempting. At Good kitchen we discovered a simple recipe for it:


  • 250 ml of milk
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • half a teaspoon of brown sugar
  • 50 grams of dark chocolate


Break the chocolate into pieces.

Heat three tablespoons of milk, brown sugar, chocolate chips and cinnamon in a saucepan until the chocolate melts.

Stir until the chocolate has melted completely. Then add the rest of the milk and slowly heat it up. Then pour the chocolate into a large cup or tall glass and sprinkle it with a little cocoa. If you like it very seductive, add some cream to the hot chocolate beforehand.

Conclusion: a must for chocolate lovers

The Burg-Café Bad Belzig is a must for all chocolate lovers! If you're in the area, don't miss out on this treat. The café may be tiny and a little quirky, but the taste of this chocolate is unique and worth a visit.

  1. Sounds very tempting. Especially now that it's already cold outside, I can't think of anything better than drinking a real hot chocolate (where else can you get that) from an elephant cup (which is probably unique) in a Burgcafe.
    Thanks for the tip

  2. Moin your two,
    real? Can you go there? In Brandenburg? Did not you take the chocolate with you? Well, next time I'm back in Berlin, I'll have to make a detour to Belzig. The only time I was in Belzig was during a bike tour from Dessau via Wittenberg and Brandenburg to Spandau. Then I cycled down the Fleming, through Belzig, and on. There was no time for a stop.
    Well then, let me get inspired.

    1. The cafe is quirky nice, but the chocolate is absolutely delicious, Götz. Something special!

    1. Tiny and quaint I would call the cafe, Michaela. And for chocolate fans a must! : D

  3. Oh how delicious! That looks fantastic. The cake and the chocolate and then in this rustic atmosphere, I have to go there!

    1. From the café itself you should not promise too much, Nicole. But the hot chocolate is really unique: D

  4. That sounds so seductive, that I would like to try this hot chocolate right away. Something similar I once experienced in Barcelona and not forgotten until today. A great tip, thank you.

    1. Hello Victoria, yes, this hot chocolate was really something special: D. She has tasted much more intense than what you usually get pretended. She was really delicious! LG, Monica

  5. that's nasty ;-) I'm always on sugar in November, so at least on things where I know exactly that industrial sugar is in it, but I love chocolate and everything related to it and the article now wakes but the desire for something sweet ,

    Nice photos, thanks for that.

    1. Give up sugar for a whole month? That would be very difficult for me :), but I try not to overdo it. I once told a nutrition specialist that it was all about versatile food. And I try to keep it as good as possible throughout the year. I treat myself to a cup of chocolate once or twice a year, when it comes up.

  6. If I'm really a chocolate lover, I do not think so.
    The area but I find really magical and you magical, as always the appropriate pleasure travel tips.

    Best regards,
