In designing the brunch entertainment, Benjamin Ickies looked for truly unique music, yet fun and upbeat. The Weimar Cabaret genre was the perfect answer. Its style and sound have long held our fascination, though few authentically reproduce it. By delving into the 30s & 40s Berlin cabaret songbook, his rotating cast of musicians and singers bring to life the works of Marlene Dietrich, Zarah Leander, Mariko Rokk and more. Sixties europop (Adriano Celentano, Hildegard Knef) and more modern rock (think Falco and Nena) round out the afternoon. Add to that Zum Schneider's one-of-a-kind selection of Hofbrau Traumstein, Andechs beers and their critically acclaimed restaurant offer up a refreshing brunch experience like no other!
