Chalet, Mandarin Oriental Munich

Back by popular demand, the wooden chalet will be making a return to Mandarin Oriental Munich’s rooftop for the winter season. And what a way to thaw from the cold! A veritable alpine cabin has pride of place on the top floor of the luxury hotel, overlooking the city with Alps as the backdrop. Inside the chalet, warm up with classic Bavarian cuisine served by staff dolled up in staff wearing traditional Bavarian Lederhosen and Dirndl.

On the menu? Original "Almhütt’n" Brotzeitbrettl 
with home smoked ham, sausage, cold roast meat, white savoury pudding; Vienna-style escalope with parsley potatoes and cranberries; oven-warm Kaiserschmarrn with raisins and sugar or apple sauce. Beat the winter blues with Bavarian music, lots of brew, and dancing on top of the benches.
