This old neighborhood inhabited almost exclusively by fishermen and winegrowers until the 19th century was miraculously saved from the disaster and destruction of the war, thus it is reminiscent of the old Frankfurt that disappeared during the war.
Here you will find half-timbered houses with wooden beams that are home to the so-called "Apfelweinwirtschaften" or "Epelwoi pubs", that is to say, premises or pubs. And this area is especially known for these places where Ebbelwoi or apfelwein are served, an apple-based drink, like cider, which is highly appreciated here.
In Alt Sachsenhausen you will find most of the aforementioned taverns. The streets where they are most concentrated are: Rittergasse, Paradiesgasse and Klappergasse. Not for nothing is this whole area known as "Ebbelweiviertel." This neighborhood is very quiet, although on Friday and Saturday nights it can be a bit noisy, due to the gathering of visitors. If you want to stay in a place very close to the historical and touristy, this is your place.
