A warm welcome to Brauereigasthof-Hotel “Roter Ochsen”!
Welcome to our traditional brewery restaurant and hotel. We welcome you to dine and stay with us in the middle of the historic old town of Ellwangen. Our house is located directly on the Kocher-Jagst cycle path. The family business, which was founded in 1542, officially received their right to brew beer in 1680. Our inn is a historic building which was built step by step, era by era, using the foundation from the original former ale house! It was eventually converted into a brewery inn – yet still, the former ale house’s character and charm have remained!
Open: 7:00 AM – midnight
The hotel does not close.
Closed: The restaurant is closed on Sunday from 3:00 PM onwards and on Mondays.
Our long-standing family tradition and original guest rooms allow the guests to feel at home at the Red Ox. Having a Red Ox beer and some Swabian cuisine in our ‘red room’ or our ‘beer chamber’ is one of the best ways to spend a day. There are also other special beer dishes on our menu. For families or groups, our ‘green chamber’ with its painted oak barrel floors or our ‘white chamber’ will offer the right setting.
Entrees: from 7,50 € – 19,90 € Snacks: from 5,- € – 9,90 €
Not only our beer, but also our cuisine will make you feel at home in our inn!
