Museumsufer, Frankfurt
(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
This river embankment is called Museumsufer 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 Museumsufer can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Walk along the River, nice and quiet, much more animated Saturday morning when is the flea market (alternate weeks). It allows a panoramic view on the other side of the River, especially the skyscrapers. I do not consider to be an essential trip, unless you go to one of the museums that fill this street.
