There’s nothing like going back to your roots. So on a trip to Germany to visit relatives, I had no qualms about indulging in some of the heartier flavors of my family’s homeland. One of my favorite stops: Frankfurt’s Sachsenhausen neighborhood. Located south of the River Main, Sachsenhausen avoided most of the Frankfurt bombings during WWII, so many older buildings are still intact. The neighborhood is known for its museums, but also—and I think, more importantly—for its apple wine (or apfelwein) taverns, which line Sachsenhausen’s cobblestone streets.
