“Who can resist such a fun tour”
Review of Ebbelwei Express

Ebbelwei Express
Ranked #29 of 473 things to do in Frankfurt
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 October 2017

We got on at the main train station and then had to stand for a stop or two before we got a table but this was so much fun. For us 8 Euros which includes the Apfelwein and bag of pretzels was a good deal! I didn't hop on and off but even better if you can. It was kitschy especially the old german music but so much fun!

The tram departs from the tram station at Zoo. There is a sign on the platform where you need to wait, as well as the schedule. The tram will arrive first on the other platform but stay where you are as it will turn at the roundabout and come back to pick up people. It's better to board the tram at his departure point - we took it on a Saturday and it was already full at the third stop. You can sit and there is a little table to put your bottle (water, juice of apple wine) and you also receive a little bag of pretzels. The tram rid is about 1 hour and goes around Frankfurt. We really enjoyed it and laughed a lot because there are also typical songs played on the tram. It's a bit expensive but it's worth the experience.

Every traveler knows the sightseeing tour buses in big cities, which have a fixed route with fixed stations where you can get off, explore around and then get onto the next bus. But here you are not doing it with a bus, you are riding a trolley! "Ebbelwei" is a word in the hessian dialect, which translates to (high-)German "Apfelwein" which translates to English "Cider" - and it's one of the many specialties here. Included in the ticket price are a small bottle of Ebbelwei (or apple juice or water) and some pretzels. Then you can ride around the city, visit the zoo, the opera, the main train station and many other significant places of the city. Different from the buses: there is no tour guide, just audio. Google for the timetable and fare price

Choose to ride the Ebbelwei express while enjoying glass of beer with your friends and family. A round trip in the city is an add on.

This is nothing special. It's a tram that pass some interesting sights of Frankfurt. You can better walk around the city.
On the tram you can drink apple-wine, apple juice or water. They serve some mini pretzels.
