Enjoy the sweet and savory delicacies of a classic English afternoon tea in the historical ambience of our Grand Hotel. Executive Pastry Chef Fabian Scheithe has perfected the British tea ceremony for you:
He brought the recipe for his scones from London. The original English scones are served with clotted cream, homemade jam and lemon curd. Furthermore, you enjoy a selection of hearty and sweet accompaniments such as sandwiches with pickled salmon or cucumber and cream cheese, mini cakes and tartlets. The range of sweet delicacies changes seasonally.
