"The Reason You Come to Germany: Beer" Old Town/Altstadt Tip by DrewV

Old Town/Altstadt, Heidelberg: 37 reviews and 68 photos

  Roten Ochsen
by DrewV

Look -- whether you realize it or not, you're in Germany to drink. That's what the Germans do, and you want to blend in. What better place to taste the fermented goodness of 'ein bier, bitte' than a pub that's been around for three centuries? I give you the Roten Ochsen (Red Ox).

Now, I imagine this place can get pretty touristy, but when we went (a particularly chilly March) the students were on spring break and the tourists were home, so it was just us and thirty proto-typical German bier-und-brat guys.
