Lovely walk

A really nice walk along the river with great views of the skyline, and with open grassed areas as well as shady spots, it's an ideal place to relax on a summers day.

This is a great area to wander, especially on a sunny day. Lots of museums along the river. Flat path and very enjoyable.

Very nice place in the city. Walking on the rivercoast makes lot of fun. You can admire the cityline but also nice churches and museums on the other side of the river.

The path by the river is really great if you like to have a walk and be able to see the city. You can also sit there and just relax, but the Museumsufer is also great for a run. Enjoyable again and again.

You will have a weekend to enjoy all kinds of museums at a great price of 7€, foods and drinks and several live concerts, throughout both the river banks. Be sure not to miss the sunday night fireworks.

Was lucky to be in the area during the three day festival where entrance to all the museums is free. Situated all along both sides of the river is bands, food and stalls selling goods.

Currently as I'm writing this post there is a fair/event in Frankfurt with many food/drink/merchant stalls setup along the river. It makes this area very busy but is a great event. Before it was open it was less busy and a very beautiful place to walk around, go for runs and sit and enjoy the weather. Personally I love the... More
