The Best Beer Gardens In Frankfurt, Germany

Sophie Williams

One of Germany’s greatest national treasures is their love of beer. The home of the ‘Beer Hall’, its no wonder that visitors sometimes visit just for this homegrown drink. Frankfurt is not as renowned for Beer Halls as Munich, but we’ve rounded up the best contenders offering traditional, authentic beer gardens with a relaxing ambience.

1. Zur Sonne

Zur Sonne

Established in 1768, this historic tavern prides itself on its ancestry and is the perfect place for some authentic Frankfurt beers. The scenic house is ideal for relaxing in a cool, spacious ambience, but the best part is the huge garden. Perfect for summer, Zur Sonne can hold 350 people in its beer garden, and in true tradition provides snug wooden seats typical of Frankfurt. Zur Sonne offers draught and bottled beers, as well as ‘Apfelwein’, the traditional cider that is a must have while visiting Frankfurt.

This former outhouse is in a great location in Innenstadt, providing the perfect spot for a warm summer’s evening. The decor is detailed yet simplistic, and its slighty out of the way location means it also attracts the locals, providing a well-worn, authentic feel. Pair the good beer selection with some classic German cooking from a well-prepared menu.

3. Solzer


Frankfurt is famous for its ‘Apfelwein’, translating to ‘Apple wine’ a somewhat cider-type beverage. If you’re keen to try this local staple, then the Solzer Apfelwein tavern is the perfect place to go. It’s one of the largest Apfelwein Taverns in the Bornheim quarters, producing the drink fresh each day to its own secret recipe. The large beer garden is complemented by the cozy traditional tavern for those cooler evenings.

4. Schoene Muellerun


Schoene Muellerun

Located near the zoo, this pub is perfect for an afternoon refreshment. Smaller than classic taverns, it’s cozy and low-key and has a nice local atmosphere. There’s a small paved outdoor area on a quiet side street, brightened up with red umbrellas and plenty of plants. Priding itself on traditional ‘Apfelwein’, this is a nice place to taste the Frankfurt specialty without the other tourist crowds. You can tell it’s authentic; just look out for the Bembel, the typical applewine-jug.

5. Dauth Schneider

Dauth Schneider

Wooden benches and long tables line the outside of this small tavern in true German style. Large beer barrels decorate the surrounding areas, giving a good indication that this is the place to be for al fresco beers and Apfelwein. To add to the traditional feel, there’s a menu of homemade specialties, all reasonably priced and offering a nice complement to the local and international beers. It’s a classic in the city and the area is nice for a postprandial stroll.
