“Worth a visit on Saturday morning.”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

My wife and i visit the flea market which is held every Saturday morning by the river Main. We found several interesting old items and we bought two old watches for our collection. If the weather is good try an easy walk

“A haven of peace away from the busy city”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Mainkai and Untermainkai are havens of peace away from the busy city, it is a lovely area to stroll, watch the barges plying the River Main and catch a glimpse of the Mainhatten skyline from the riverside. There are several cafes dotted along the promenade to while away a couple of hours. A visit here is recommended whilst in Frankfurt.

“Away from stress”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Mainkai is a great possibility to skip away from the stressy business city. While sitting/ walking relaxed you will see a lot of businessmen going out of their offices to take a break. The area is nice, very calm, nice river views, there are some places to eat/drink/sit, so no problem to stay here even for some hours. But even if you would like to swich from the crowded rushing city to the nature for half an hour- this is the place. Then you can go to Römer and meet the crowds again:). From Mainkai you can make the river ride along Frankfurt, there is a place not far from Römer ( take the direction Dom- big old cathedral). The Mainkai doesn't offer something really spectacular, this is just a nice promenade. But good for romantic " easy walking"

“Easy stroll on a sunny day”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

It was a pleasant walk on a sunny day. There are also several nice eateries by the water and so it was possible to sit outdoor and enjoy an easy morning there.

“In winter, it was dreary”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Even on a cool, dreary day in winter there were a lot of bikers and joggers on the path along the Main River. In the evening, the museums and churches across the river are lit up, some in various colors. I felt safe as I walked along, watching the boats and barges.
