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.

This is not Frankfurt nor Germany, but tourists love this special tram with alcohol served on board. You might want to go to a real place instead of this trash.

This is basically a tram that goes around the city and you can watch while you ride along. Don't expect anything extraordinary from either drinks or food but you will be rewarded with an original tram ride through the city and the more or less...More

It looks like a kid's train. It serves pretzels and apple juice, and I think also wine and water. It was perfect for us because we went as a family, we did not want to spend too much on a tour, nor did we want...More

We were very excited to see the Ebblewei Express pulling into our tram stop, especially since our walking tour was cancelled at the last minute. We boarded, full of excitement and cheers-ed our first Frankfurter ciders with massive grins on our faces. Before long we...More

How on earth do I describe this attraction? A preserved tram with a twist. It includes apple cider and pretzels as part of the fare (or apple juice or water). It plays piped German drinking music throughout the journey. It has bottle racks with bottle...More

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...More

I would think slim if just turning up. We were lucky having a free table for the 2 of us - it was busy! They do hire out trams for Private parties. We saw a single tram unit with people partying. Maybe that's an option? Have... More
