Cider festival in Frankfurt

Frankfurt's penchant for apfelwein – the local cider – has always played a major part in the city's way of life. So much so that the locals and visitors honour the signature Frankfurt drink with a festival dedicated to apfelwein featuring a varied programme of live entertainment. Between 9 and 18 August 2013, producers from across Hessen and Europe will be serving this popular drink in all its wonderful varieties alongside culinary specialities in a marquee on Rossmarkt square in the city centre. Festival-goers can sway along to live music from popular regional bands or enjoy a cider cocktail while a chilled-out soundtrack adds to the easygoing atmosphere.
