There is nothing cool about touring the city getting drunk at the same time. It is neither typical German nor typical for Frankfurt. Made for tourists and upnoxious to anyone living here.

Beware, do not take this train if you are looking for a guided tour. It really is just the above ground train where you can drink and sightsee at the same time. You can buy an all-day train pass for less and really see more of the city. There is absolutely no tour information given out on the train. We... More

Most people don't even know about this small train that goes through Frankfurt. It is a funny experience one should have tried it! When you get on the train you get half a litre of German apple cider and some pretzels - the ride begins! See Frankfurt from a different view while enjoying some local specialities.

You can drink here a beer and see the interesting part of the city traveling on that tram. Fantastic idea!

The thing to do is to take it only when it is going in the right direction to a place you want to go to

Why this isn't done in every city is the question I've been asking myself since yesterday. It's One of the most fun sight seeing tours we've done so far. Way less tiring than the walking tours that are everywhere. Actually after a week of train hopping and walking kilometers and kilometers each day a tram ride and some cider could... More

The Ebbelwoi Express is an antique tram that does a tour of Frankfurt and serves ebbelwoi (apple cider) as you ride along. It is very popular and very difficult to board at weekends and holidays. Patience is required. The Ebbelwoi Express operates in clockwise and counterclockwise directions so if one is full, cross over the road and catch one going... More

With this funny tram you can see the whole city and enjoy a nice glas of apple wine. A very experience.

Innovative way to get a tour around Frankfurt: this old tram is turned into a travelling "Kneipe" - a small bar where you can enjoy riding around the city and drining the traditional for the region Apfelwein, or apple cider.
