    End the day on a pub crawl in Alt-Sachsenhausen

    Order an apfelwein, Frankfurt’s quintessential cider, during your pub crawl

    A pub crawl is ideal for experiencing Frankfurt’s vibrant nightlife. Beer may be a staple in Germany’s drinking culture, but don’t miss out on apfelwein, which is fermented apple juice with an alcohol content of 4% to 7%. For a more local experience, we love exploring Schweizer Straße in Old Sachsenhausen. This tree-line commercial street houses plenty of pubs and taverns that brew their own apfelwein, but beers and wines are on their drinks list as well. You get to meet like-minded travellers during the pub crawl, with a local guide taking you to some of the city’s most popular nightlife spots all night long… or until no one can walk in a straight line.
