We went here on the strong recommendation of a local. When we went in the older male/husband owner said no but we didn't quite understand. We waited and in a few minutes the older/Wife owner sat us. We are glad we didn't understand and waited....More

Recommended to us by a local-excellent value for money. Sauerbrauten and pork cutlet very tender and good. They offer smaller portions which are really regular size for me. Would definitely try again.

Went for lunch after receiving recommendation from a local tour guide. We seemed the only tourists enjoying our meal with locals. If you are looking for a local schnitzel or sausage with sauerkraut this is a very good choice.

Zum Ochsen is run by an old couple and is a popular place for locals to eat. The old lady who serves the food is a classic old german woman who doesn't smile much. The food is as German as it comes and is priced...More
