Afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental Munich
The days are getting colder and therefore it is going to be more difficult to find outdoor activities. I mean, who wants to freeze outside in the cold? But what to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon in Germany, when everything is closed? Well, what about a glamorous afternoon tea with delicious petit fours?
To be honest: There are not many places that hold a good afternoon tea in Munich. But at least, there are a few. I tried the afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental Munich and want to share my experience with you.
The Afternoon Tea at the Mandarin Oriental Munich
The afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental takes place every day from 2 pm to 6 pm and actually comes pretty close to a traditional British tea time. Sofas, cosy chairs, etageres with petit fours as well as pretty porcelain ensure that the ambience is nice. And from Friday to Sunday, you can also listen to the relaxing sound of a pianist.
From Monday to Thursday, you have to reservate at least 24 hours in advance if you want to visit for afternoon tea. This is not mandatory from Friday to Sunday. However, I recommend to reservate on these days as well, as there are only very limited places for tea time.

The Petit Fours
They serve delicious sandwiches, scones and other petit fours with your afternoon tea. And the best: You can drink as much tea as you want. There are many different sorts of tea availble and you choose from their card or seek advice from the lovely service staff.
The afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental in Munich costs 45 Euros per person. But if you visit at the late afternoon and eat everything from your etagere, you most likely won’t need much for dinner.
What to wear for Tea Time
Of course there is no specific dress code for the tea time at the Mandarin Oriental. However, I like to dress up for such special occasions and believe that a pretty but not so formal tea or afternoon dress is the absolute perfect choice.
