Zur Schönen Müllerin - cider tavern, German restaurant in Frankfurt

The Zur Schönen Müllerin is a Frankfurt classic cider tavern where locals and visitors go for typical Frankfurt food and apple wine.

Once upon a time, back in 1896, a man called Hermann Müller and his wife Johanna started an apple-wine business with adjacent restaurant. Since Johanna was so beautiful, everyone called her the Schöne Müllerin (the beautiful miller-maid).

Sadly, Johanna has left us already, but fortunately, since 1988 the charming Torsten Dornberger and his jovial staff keep alive the tradition. The ”Schöne Müllerin” is still today very much what it has been for the last 100 years: a neighbourhood tavern with excellent Hessian and Frankfurt cuisine and a really good apple-wine, but in the meantime, a more mixed public joins the locals  - a really nice and fun crowd!

Torsten has received many awards for his inspired cooking, which occasionally may also result in some daring crossover creations. The "Frankfurter Grüne Sosse” belongs to the best in town. The "Hessenschnitzel” (Schnitzel filled with apples, sauerkraut and bacon in an apple-wine sauce) is an absolute must and for the pork medaillons "Pavarotti” in gorgonzola sauce many a guest will sing a few "La Traviata” arias.


Whether in the picturesque and cosy restaurant or in the summer garden, apple-wine is what one drinks. But since it takes getting used to (whereby it is every effort worth!), you may have a Pilsner Urquell or choose one of the fine German wines.
