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

I had one day to spend in Frankfurt and chose this is my one tour as it sounds fantastic. I'm sure it is, but it would have to show up for me to know. I checked with the tourism office and they had already heard of this complaint but could not comment as it is part of the public transportation... More

This is a fun concept: you get on an old tram, have a bottle of traditional applewine (ebbelwei) and some pretzels and watch the city go by. Good if you just want to sit and relax with your friends or are tired of walking. Not really as much fun as you might expect. The service was friendly and you get... More

For 7 euros, you get to ride in a circuit around the main part of Frankfurt, but there is no narration or anything, so for that, take the 12 euro bus tour that has narration in a variety of languages through headphones. On the other hand, you can get off or on at any of the several stops, and you... More

7 Euros to ride around a crowded tram, and drink a bottle of apple wine. I was expecting a little naration with the ride, maybe a little history, info on traditions, etc.

This is the first time I felt the need to review an attraction that I have not experienced in person! I'll tell you why. We had chosen Frankfurt as the base for our Weihnachtsmarkt tour of Hessen. As tram lovers, it would be impossible for us to miss this tram. But there were a lot of things to consider, its... More

I would definitely recommend doing the tour when in Frankfurt, you can pick the tram up at various stops around the city and can purchase tickets on the tram. For 7EUR you receive a beverage and a bag of pretzels, plus the warmth of the tram for an hour. It's a good way to see the city without having to... More

They follow their route precisely, so you can use it for transit. And you get off your feet with a cold drink and cheerful German music to see the city. Lovely!!
