Overall Ochsenbraterei Decor & Vibe

I love this tent.

During the day at lunch hour, it’s actually one of the most bustling tents thanks to its delicious ox specialties, but the atmosphere becomes even more magical at night when the lights dim to a cool blue and the band dishes out top modern hits and beloved classics.

To me, it strikes the perfect balance between fun party vibes and classiness. If you’re like me and want a place to belt party songs at the top of your lungs (but NOT get thrown up on), this is a fun tent where the food is delicious!
