No sojourn in Frankfurt is complete without a quick visit for a glass of the renowned Frankfurt Ebbelwei&. 1390 onwards, Frankfurt boasted a city wall with nine towers that also enveloped the district of Sachsenhausen. Sachsenhausen remained a village until the end of the 19th century, serving as Frankfurt's fish, fruit and vegetable supplier. During the Middle Ages, beer and wine were the beverages of choice. Then, in the middle of the 16th century, the Rhine-Main area went through a bit of a climatic change, which negatively influenced wine production from hereon in. As a result, many vineyards were transformed into fruit orchards. During the Goethe era, more and more wine taverns made the transition to apple wine pub.
