Aussenansicht Roter Ochsen Ellwangen
The Roter Ochsen is a cosy brewery inn rich in tradition with a hotel right in the centre of Ellwangen, former residence of the Prince-Provost.

Two sharp gables characterize the outline of the family business which was established in 1542. Then named Rotochsen-Taverne, the inn developed into the court’s alehouse (Hofbierschenke) and later also became the royal posthouse.
In 1680, the royal brewer was officially granted the brewing rights.
