Andy Warhol Afternoon Tea
The name Andy Warhol is considered the epitome of Pop Art. With his art he has shaped an entire era. His brightly colored portraits of stars are world-famous. But did you know that during his 1980 trip to Germany, Warhol took photos of famous German landmarks, which he later transformed into works of art? Among them is a picture of Cologne Cathedral. He took the picture from the window of our beautiful Cathedral Suite Number 205, where he stayed during his stay in Cologne.
Inspired by Warhol's great works, such as the famous Campbell's Dose, Executive Pastry Chef Fabian Scheithe has created a very special afternoon tea for you.
Did you already know?
In 1988, a good year after Warhol's death, one of his works broke through the $1 million mark for the first time at Sotheby's in New York. "210 Coca-Cola Bottles" sold for $1.4 million at the May promotion at the time.
44 EUR per person including a pot of tea of your choice and our selection of classic English afternoon tea
