Culture pure in Frankfurt. Dozens of museums open their doors, shows, workshops, art, music speciality handwork is on view all along the river on both banks. A yearly extravaganza ending in a massive firework show. Don't miss the dragon boat racing and, of course, plenty to eat and drink, this is, after all, in Germany.For a non-mainstream music entertainment I always go to the RadioX stage (below the Holbein foot bridge), always something new and interesting to hear.

The Frankfurt Museumsufer is a tree lined walk along the Main River on one side and multiple museums and restaurants on the opposite side. The museums range from film, architectural, Art at the Stadel and many other delights. The places you can eat at range from fine dining to Spanish Tapas to trendy cafe bars along the Main river. This area also hosts multiple festivals to include the Mainufer Fest held around late August or early September.

Various museums as the name suggests, but also appealing restaurants and bars, and because of the location on the banks of the main river with various parks and old trees, a lot of nature for a city location

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.

This is a place full of great museums and a beautiful landscape. If you don't like museums, go to appreciate the nature outside

One of the nicest stretches of riverbank. I live just 40m back from the Museumsufer next to the Staedel Museum. Great place for jogging, cycling and visiting all the museums that line the river. Also lots of bars (some on boats) and restaurants along the way. Great for picnics too on the lawns by the river bank. Plus the annual Museumsufer Festival on the last weekend of August that attracts up to 3 million visitors - with free music and dance performances, artworks, and food from all corners of the world. Great place to live, great place to visit.

Museumsufer refers to the stretch of Schaumainkai, the central Frankfurt street south of Main River.

A darn good idea by a smart guy to locate a number of museums in one location. Off hand there are the Staedel Museum, Architecture Museum, Communication Museum and Museum of Applied Art located here and even an old church, the Dreikonigskirche thrown into the mix for good measure.

Even if museums are not your cup tea, walking along the street itself is an exhilarating experience.

Didn’t know it had a name.
To me just was ( and always will be) a pleasant walk under the trees along Schaumainkaj and or a stroll in the riverbank by the Main.

By the Stäedel Museum there is a guide post sign with pictures of the different museums. Use it.
There are many museums now, so a little self-perp wouldn’t hurt.

On a nice day, people watching and museum hoping can be fun.
Be aware of the bikers when on the river walkway; they go fast, so make no sudden lateral moves without looking both-ways first.

The Museums Ufer has an impressive variety of museums and galleries, Frankfurt am Main has earned a national reputation as a city of the arts. Every year more than 2 million people visit the city’s approximately 60 exhibition centers. Galleries also present a comprehensive range of contemporary art from the areas of painting, photography, and sculpture.

A prominent attraction is Frankfurt’s Museum Riverbank, one of the most important locations for museums in Germany and all of Europe. Renowned exhibition centers such as the Städel Museum (Städel Museum), the German Architecture Museum (Deutsches Architekturmuseum), the German Film Museum (Deutsches Filmmuseum), or the Jewish Museum (Jüdisches Museum) can be found along the bank of the Main river. And every year many museums invite people to two special cultural events: the “night of museums” and the Museum Riverbank festival.
