Fodor's Review

Mark Twain rubbed elbows with students here during his 1878 stay in Heidelberg—look for his photo on one of the memorabilia-covered walls. Zum Roten Oschen is popular with students and local residents for its hearty meals at reasonable prices and friendly atmosphere, and has been operated by the same family for more than 170 years. A pianist plays German and international favorites, starting at 9 pm.
