IDEE #9: Apple Wine
Apple wine has been Frankfurt's beverage of choice for more than 250 years. The best place to try this cider-like drink is at one of the city's rustic apple wine restaurants, where it is poured from the so-called "bembel", a traditional earthenware jug. The IDEA behind this grey jug with its blue tendril pattern is symbolic for Frankfurt's time-honored apple wine culture. Traditional meals go well with Frankfurt apple wine - commonly referred to as "Äppler". And because apples are known to be very healthy, we here in Frankfurt like to say: An Äppler a day keeps the doctor away!
