On the 6th December, the German Gymnasium was first opened. This charming location will be open close to Kings Cross in London until the end of February. The Gymnasium has transformed their terrace into a magical world, which has been formed in partnership with the German airline Lufthansa as well as their drinks partners Monkey 47 and Fever-Tree Premium Natural Mixers.
The terrace has been inspired by the well-known and much loved mystical stories that were told by the Brothers Grimm and has been adorned with winter foliage, magical twinkling lights, and filled with warming throws and decorative details the evoke nostalgic visions of eight of the brothers’ best loved tales. The scenes created at German Gymnasium include Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, The Golden Goose, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Hansel & Gretel.
The eight tales have also been put into motion through the German Gymnasium’s own edition of the original 1812 folklore. The team have also recreated a cocktail list in order to celebrate the tales and their legacy, using some of the finest ingredients. The menu includes a range of bold serves which are full of flavour. The Little Red Riding Hood is served in a wolf-adorned and includes Monkey 47 Gin, Lillet Blanc, Byrrh and Fever-Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale. There are also a number of smoother drink options, such as the Cinderella, which is Lillet Rouge, Rinomato bitter infused coffee beans and Fever-Tree Smoky Ginger Ale, served with hand carved ice.
As an addition to this festive, German experience, the Executive Chef Bjoern Wassmuth has created a number of traditional German winter food classics to enjoy while on the terrace such as Roasted Fresh chestnuts as well as a selection of Germany’s favourite sausages which include the Currywurst and Bratwurst which have been turned into Hot Dogs.
