Apple Wine and Dine

Frankfurt am Main

“Apfelwein” (apple wine) used to be a poor man’s drink. It was alcohol made accessible by fermenting one of the most plentiful fruits: the apple. The result is a vibrant, flavorful wine that reflects Frankfurt’s joie de vivre and exquisite cuisine. Apfelwein’s accessibility and appealingly complex taste make its enjoyment universal. Wine, dine, and redefine your taste with our picks from Frankfurt’s best apple wine bars and restaurants.

Adolf Wagner (Apfelwein Wagner)

2 saves

Frankfurt am Main, Germany • Recommendation • 

Adolf Wagner’s charm comes from its loud and boisterous regulars. Wining and dining is positively casual in this energetic “Apfelweinwirtschaft” (apple wine bar). Get the Pork Knuckle with Fried Potatoes, eat it as bearishly as you can, then down your Frankfurt Cider. There’s no judgment here, only a good time with great people!

Zur Buchscheer

1 save

Frankfurt am Main, Germany • Recommendation • 

Zur Buchsheer’s apple wine is fermented the traditional way, resulting in a full body and a strong taste. Apfelwein has spurred many variations (sweet, sparkling, and cranberry-infused among others) because of its popularity, but Zur Buchseer’s cider screams authenticity. Take your time and really savor the flavors of your cider in the restaurant’s quiet and relaxed atmosphere.

Frankfurt am Main, Germany • Recommendation • 

Walk into Klapper 33 for the apple wine experience on a budget, eclectic music, and eccentric decor. The pub is practically a work of art with walls full of disarrayed vintage ornaments (and a functioning dart board that blends in with the theme). Prepare to be greeted by friendly staff and a laid-back atmosphere that will make you linger and have a good time. Their notoriously clean bathrooms are a bonus, too!

Atschel is a culinary paradise that only gives you the best from appetizer to dessert. The restaurant takes German cuisine seriously.
