Adventure according to schedule: the unique Ebbelwei Expreß

The legendary Ebbelwei Expreß offers an adventure of the special Frankfurt variety. On this unusual Frankfurt tram in original style with delicious “Ebbelwei” (apple wine) and friendly people, passengers can relax and watch the world go by in a convivial atmosphere.

Because the Ebbelwei Expreß also passes various tourist sights in Frankfurt, it has become a firm favourite among visitors to the city. However, even long-established residents love their Ebbelwei Express: a cosy, mobile meeting point where you can enjoy tasty treats and beautiful views.

The classic pleasure ride takes place on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. Punctual and regular: the Ebbelwei Expreß runs along the normal transport lines. You can start the 1-hour trip at any of the 23 Ebbelwei Express stops. However you can’t split the trip into various parts, as your ticket will cease to be valid if you get off.

By the way: If you listen to our Ebbelwei Expreß Podcast on your smartphone or mobile music player, a trip on the Ebbelwei Expreß will be an experience for the ears as well as the eyes. You can choose standard German or even be authentic and listen in the local Hessian dialect.
