Museum Embankment, Frankfurt

(4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
This river embankment is called Museum Embankment because of its large concentration of museums. Set off on a walk by the Main and pop into a few museums. The most famous of the bunch is the Städel art gallery. Visit the Ikonen Museum to see its collection of Russian, Bulgarian, Greek, and other religious icons, or try the Deutsches Filmmuseum to learn about the development of movie-making. Many of the museums are home to trendy restaurants or cafes. If it's a clear day, have a bite to eat in the Museum Angewandte's bistro, which offers view of Metzler Park. The lawns by the riverbanks make an ideal picnic spot. Using our international travel planner, Frankfurt attractions like Museum Embankment can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Nice river view, good place to relax from the vibrant inner city life. On the weekend it could be a little crwoded due to a lot of promenaders.  more »
  • The museum embankment is known for the museums, of course, on the other hand it is main river just at the weekend a popular promenade, both above and below at the. The weekend is often even a flea market - but especially with professional sellers. And there's also a good way to go and drink or eat.

  • The museum embankment is located on the southern bank of the main in Frankfurt Sachsenhausen between Eiserner Steg and get leg bridge. Dominant Museum is the collection of Städelsche Art Institute, a short Städel, with its impressive collection of paintings of different periods. In addition, several museums of film, about architecture, communication to the ethnographic museum have their home on the Museumsufer. The historical Museum, the Schirn Kunsthalle, the Museum of modern art, all appropriate to pay tribute to the Jewish Museum and still much more that a weekend is certainly not sufficient, are located north of the main.
