This stretch is one of the best walking areas in Frankfurt, with the museums on one side and the river on the other side. You can enjoy views of the Frankfurt skyline from here. Relax along the riverside, or stroll around at your pace. You can see the different type of bridges across the river. We started our walk from... More

I live in Sachsenhausen and I find myself along the Museumufer at least three to four times a week. It really is one of the best "attractions" in Frankfurt. If you're here, just wander along, take a side track or two...get lost...walk around...you'll always be able to find something to do or something new to see.

The Museumsufer is located on the banks of the river passing through the city.This is one of the best attractions in Frankfurt city specially during spring and summer time as to walk down through the river side by visiting the museums is very nice and interesting.Recommended to make a tour at yr own.

As we had no knowledge of the greater cultural sights and facilities to visit during our short stay our strategy involved first doing the complete 45 minute hop-on hop-off bus trip before we began to hop off hop on. We visited several museums and enjoyed it very much. We had a snack at the communications museum which we found fine... More

Regardless what season you are at Frankfurt (Main) the path along the river is wonderful. You can see all the brdges, walk under trees if you want and yuo path the many museums long the river. I do not know any city in the world where you have that many museums as you have in Frankfurt. Some of international standards,... More

Allow yourself to get lost in the neighborhood. This part of town was less affected by the WW II bombardments, so the architecture is more "German traditional".

Lovely area to walk along, by the river. All the Museums are along this street so it is a pleasant area and lot's to see. But also just nice to walk along.

best historical buildings were chosen to house classical collections; new buildings by excellent architects like Richard Meyer and Hollein; city decided also to start "minority"-museums like the Jewish museum or the Museum of icons.

It;s a beautiful street to walk along in a good weather, and in rain you have choices of museums to find a shelter and spend a quality time in a cultural environment.

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
