Alcoholic Beverages

On the subject of beers, wines and ciders.

Another one of Germany's great traditions are certain alcoholic beverages and Frankfurt is no exception. The elaboration of certain places has made the beverages very famous and now they are a main part of the city's gastronomy. The beer is evidently in first place. There are known to be more than 5000 types of this beverage and their brewing dates back to the year 1515. You can take advantage and try the typical brands like 'Becks', 'Paulaner' and 'Königpilsener'. It's also a good idea not to miss the opportunity of tasting the wines from this city. Although they're not as popular as the beers, they also have a great tradition which dates back to the Middle Ages. It's said that the cultivation of wine began in a castle called 'Vollrads', but no one has been able to verify this. We recommend that you take advantage of your visit to taste wines like Saar, Riesling, Trollinger, Neckar and Rhine. By the way, did you know that the cider of the region has to be the cheapest drink in the district of 'Sachsenhausen', according to law? Make the most of it and enjoy yourself!
