We much enjoyed the hour's ride! The tram is lovingly decorated, the apple wine and pretzel "picnic" a nice touch and the round tour just the right amount of time. The music, whilst authentic, does get a bit much after a while :-) Also would...More

Really enjoyed this. It’s just a tram going around the city but for a couple of € you can drink the local cider. Loved every minute

We were recently treated to a journey on the Ebbelwei Express whilst in Frankfurt, & we really enjoyed it. Ebbelwei, or Applewine (cider), is a local delicacy & this, combined with a city tour on an historic tram with traditional music, is a great experience....More

It took an hour and 3/4 to get on here. It's okay to see the sights and have a wine. Once you done it you've done it

Would recommend this for adults in December, in the evening when it is dark to see the very festive Frankfurt and to appreciate the architecture. Tram is heated and comfortable and the cider and pretzels were a nice touch.
