Wine TastingFrankfurt

Enjoy a fascinating Frankfurt tour with apple wine on a Main cruise with The River Cruise Line. The exciting city of Frankfurt nestles on either side of the Main river in Germany and is the largest financial centre in continental Europe. It’s also home to some of the world’s largest trade fairs including the Frankfurt Motor Show and the Frankfurt Book Fair. Unlike the city centre, which was destroyed during the second world war, the old town of the Sachsenhausen district is partly preserved with cobblestone lanes, small squares and fountains. This is the centre of the apple wine quarter, where traditional taverns line up one after the other and visitors sit on long benches with wooden tables, sipping apple wine from ribbed glasses. Our specially themed tour, which covers happenings on both sides of the Main River, tells the story of Frankfurt apple wine, its traditions in Old Sachsenhausen and the production process, finishing off with a glass of apple wine in a traditional tavern.

Facts:

• Frankfurt is dubbed ‘Mainhattan’ because of its position on the Main river and its skyline which bears a strong resemblance to New York’s Manhattan

Highlights:

• Visit Old Sachsenhausen, which nestles along the edge of the Main and is filled with taverns and fountains
