The experience was pleasant, but you can basically cover the same route using Frankfurt's excellent public trams (without the pretzels and wine, of course).

The colorful trolley has been in operation for decades. Onboard, in addition to seeing the sights, you taste two of Frankfurt's specialties - Brezels and Ebblewoi (pretzel like you never tasted before and fermented apple juice - a taste you acquire after drinking a glass or two!) Good with kids or even on your own. A must in Frankfurt!

This is a fun way to sightsee in Frankfurt during a visit or stopover. The ride provides a bag of pretzel snack and apelwein (for adults) or apple juice (for kids). The atmosphere on the ride is fun and great way to meet the locals or visitors.

If you have an hour to spare jump on board to have a nice pleasant tour of Frankfurt on a charming little train. Great ambiance helped along by the apple wine and pretzels included in the price. Go on the website to donwload route and timetable - this helped us. We got on at Romer Square.

Old streetcar decorated (we thought it looked like the artist got his inspiration from the Beatles "yellow submarine") and set up to see the sites. Go with a friend, as it can be loud with the chatter. variety of people - families, young couples, old couples, tourists and locals. Ride is 50 min, with a 10 minute break at the... More

We were part of a large group and spend a few enjoyable hours touring Franfurt drinking beer and apfelwein. However one needs to walk around Frankfurt to really appreciate the beautiful buildings and churches

In one hour you get to see some of the main attractions in Frankfurt. During your ride you can enjoy a bottle of applewein and pretzels, which is included in the fare. To be honest, I prefer the local beer but if you visit Frankfurt some applewein is a must. In short, good value and a fun way to see... More

My friends recommend this attraction to me and I'm really pleased they did. The Ebbelwei Express (applewine express) is a cool way to spend an hour and see some of the major sights of Frankfurt while enjoying their very own home industry brew, Applewine. The tram trip takes about an hour and costs €8/person (which includes a 250/300ml bottle of... More
