Try an apple wine at Apfelwein Wagner
Despite all of the great beer and wine produced in the region, Frankfurt's favorite libation is apfelwein (apple wine).
Sachsenhausen on the south bank is renowned for its apfelwein taverns, none better than Adolf Wagner, established in 1931 and still owned by the same family.
Braeburn single variety apfelwein, created from fruit grown just outside of Frankfurt, is the house specialty.
The tavern also serves traditional German dishes like pork knuckles, schnitzel, sausages, potato salad and sauerkraut.
It's a sprawling place with several distinct bar areas, and both indoor and outdoor seating during warmer weather.
