The signature drink in Frankfurt is Apfelwein

Sachsenhausen in Frankfurt has friendly atmosphere and more than 100 bars serving locally produced cider

FRANKFURT: This is a city with creative cuisine and gourmet kitchens, five-star restaurants and trendy eateries, but in Frankfurt traditional apple wine pubs are the speciality.

Apfelwein, also known as stöffche or ebbelwei, is a type of cider that has long been considered the signature drink of the Hessen region. In and around Frankfurt in particular, you can find lots of inviting cider houses and beer gardens where apfelwein is served the old-fashioned way in a blue earthenware pitcher called a bembel.

Historical tram. For a special treat, take a tour through Frankfurt on the Ebbelwei-Express, a sightseeing tram that has been transporting tourists and locals wanting to celebrate ever since 1977 – drink included.

With plenty of music and local cider, the party soon gets into full swing. In Sachsenhausen, with its friendly atmosphere, narrow cobbled streets and more than 100 traditional bars serving locally produced cider, you’ll quickly make new friends. The people of Frankfurt love nothing more than to sit or stand side by side with visitors in the quaint bars and traditional inns of Sachsenhausen’s old quarter.

Culinary mile. No visit in Frankfurt is complete without a visit to Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse and Kalbächer Grasse, connecting Opera Square with Rathenau Square, referred to as the Fressgass, Frankfurt´s culinary mile.
