The streets along the bank of the Main river make for a lovely stroll. They also offer very easy access to several museums, which is an added bonus. Having said that, this feature is not unique to Frankfurt, and I wonder why do locals think so highly of it. Not that it's not a nice place, but come on, it's... More

It is just wondeful to walk along the Main river in summer or sit down for a cool drink. The "Museumsuferfest" is the highlight of the year.

Located on the south side of the Main are many museums (Architecture, Culture, Communication, Stadel, Sculpture and more), so one could easily spend a significant amount of time viewing a variety of places. This is also a really nice spot for a scenic and panoramic view of the Frankfurt skyline and walking between these museums is very easy.

I visited Frankfurt 3 times but i missed this place in my earlier visit. The Musemsufer is located near and along to the river.

Strolling along the Museumufer is an outdoor delight and provides access to multiple museums of various types. This is one of the most interesting, enriching, and enjoyable aspects of Frankfurt, and can easily occupy a full day or two.

Along the Museum Embankment runs the River Main. There are many benches, a walking/jogging/biking trails, and beautiful views of the surrounding nature. What a lovely place to relax!

The scenary was very pleasant and relaxed. People were cheerfully talking, running, playing etc. and we really enjoyed the landscape, the ducks in the river, the cheerful atmosphere around us!

Took a long, relaxing walk on a sunny day, such a great area with visual stimulation. You can't go wrong spending a few hours in this area.

We bought our museum surfer ticket at the design museum and then used it to visit the Staedel, DAM, world culture and a couple of other museums/galleries it is good value for money but you can only but a two day pass and museums shut on monday so get your timing right or you'll waste money!
