I simply love the Museumsufer, especially in summer! The actual embankment (ufer) along the Rhine is perfect for enjoying sunsets and drinking Apfelwein, and the museums along Schaumainkai are conveniently located right next to one another. Winter or rainy days are much better when spent visiting the museums in Frankfurt!

It's the avenue by the river main where you can find lots of museums. I would sugest to walk along it, and stop in the museums that interest you.

During the day you can have a nice walk by the river. At night you get a magnificent view of 'Mainhatten'. It's a nice and romantic walk.

Pros: No cost, easy to reach Cons: Hmmm...can't think of any The Museumsufer is a wooded trail alongside the south side of the Main river. This location is home to a number of museums, giving it its name. Regardless of whether you plan to visit the museums, it makes for a terrific walk and view of the city across the... More

The path along the river can still be enjoyed in winter, even with the trees having dropped their leaves. Nice views of the skyline as well

You can keep on walking and walking and will not tire a bit. Many museums all along. But I find the lush green parks and trees all along more fascinating,

A great concept. Place as many museums as possible all along the banks of the river Main in between old town Frankfurt and Sachsenhausen across the river. Easy to spend a couple of days touring the various museums. Worthwhile.

Nice walk along the river that flows through Frankfurt. The trees create a sort of tunnel that guides you through lovely views of the city alongside the river. Beautiful night walk.
