We read that there was a brunch at Restaurant Lesage in the Volkswagen factory on Sundays and thought it would be a fun experience. We asked our server at one of it's sister restaurants Palais Bistro about it on Saturday night and he offered to make reservations for us for the brunch-which was so incredibly nice. The brunch came with a tour of the factory, but unfortunately on such short notice there was no English tour available for us...so we said we would take the German tour. We arrived at Lesage approximately 45 minutes earlier than our reservation and they graciously took us to our table early, but we had a tour reservation that started at a set time so we ate so fast to be ready for our tour...finally I asked if we could come back to our table after the tour to eat some dessert...and they said absolutely. Well unbeknownst to us, when you make a reservation for a table..it is yours for the entire time of the brunch hours.....I think it was 11-3....that would have been good to know. Anyway the brunch was very nice-I can't say that the food was "exceptional" it was good-but the experience was exceptional-the space is beautiful, the tour was fun-it would have obviously been more worthwhile in English and probably even more interesting during a work day-but it was definitely cool. The brunch was expensive but included the tour-I am not sure how much the tour alone costs....but I will say when people ask us what our favorite parts of our trip were...we say the Volkswagen brunch! Also there was a piano player who was amazing and really made the afternoon a real treat. I have been told that reservations are quite necessary-especially if you want the tour in a language other than German you must call a few days ahead of time.
