Apple Wine Express Tips (7)

Ebbelwoi Express - Apple Wine Express

The "national" drink in Frankfurt is not beer; it's apple wine, or as the locals call it "Able- Voy". This beverage is can generally only be found in the German State of Hessen, where the keltering and pressing of this wine is an age old tradition. Frankfurters try to get their guests to try it, and the leading producer of Frankfurter Apple Wine, the Possmann Company came up with an idea of introducing the Frankfurt national drink to the tourists of the world - the "Able-Voy Express", an old tram that has been painted in bright colors.
For 5 Euro you can take a tour through the city and get a glass of geniune Frankfurter Apple Wine and a pretzel. You can order more if you like it. A word of caution to the unschooled palates of the world - order a "Zus-ge-spritz-ter" (Apple Wine + 7UP)

Oh, the tram only runs on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Ebblewoi Express

If you are in Frankfurt on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, why not go for a ride on the apple wine express?

You can get on at one of many stops in Frankfurt (including the zoo, the main train station, and Lokalbahnhof in Sachsenhausen) and ride for about an hour round trip. Tickets cost 5 Euro for adults and you get your choice of apple wine or apple juice and a bag of pretzels.

It is a bit cheesy, but fun!

See the website (address given below) for a PDF of the complete schedule.

Apfelwein

I thought the Apfelwein tour was the biggest waste of money!!! I have lived in Frankfurt for three weeks, and this past weekend, my friend came and visited. I decided to take her on the Apfelwein and we were really disappointed. First of all, the station is impossible to find, because it is just a regular Strassenbahn stop to the right of the zoo (no signs!) Once we found the bus stop we had to wait, because one tram was full.

When we finally boarded the tram (30 minutes later), we were given a choice of what we wanted to have to drink and a bag of pretzels. A little while later, we were given a brochure with where we were going. I thought that this tram would be like other trams I have taken (Washington, D.C., for example) where they tell you what buildings are and a little history on the buildings and the town, but there was nothing! Plus, you don't get a second drink, and on this particular day, I needed the refreshment!

I think the price went up, because I am pretty sure I paid €6 for it.

I would not recommend it, because you really do not get your money's worth. Just walk around the city a couple days, stop at a restaurant and get some Apfelwein, get a guide book and it would be so much better!

Apple Wine Express - original way of sightseeing

For lovers of old trams not only San Fransisco is the place to be, but also to some extend Frankfurt. The so called "Ebbelwei Express", in High German: "Apfelwein Express", in English: "Apple wine Express" is a method of sight seeing or getting an impression of the city. It travels for about an hour to both sides of the city across the river Main, but only on Saturday, Sunday and some public holidays. Start and Finish is the station "Zoo", but you can hop on or off at several other stops.

Ticketprice is 5Euro, 2.50 for kids. Applewine, applejuice, sparkling water will be provided as well as pretzels.

The train can also be hired for 2hours+ for company parties, weddings, evening celebrations etc.
