Culture

Frankfurt’s cultural scene is unique – in its abundance, its diversity, its excellence and its vivacity. It features history and tradition, science and curiosities, new insights for insiders, entertainment for children as well as plenty of distractions for all those not keen on culture! The city’s museum embankment, home of the world-famous Städel Museum, is a cultural location unlike any in all of Germany. Here, in the smallest of spaces, one finds greatest thematic diversity. There’s also the museum quarter of the new old town, featuring the Historical Museum Frankfurt, Schirn Kunsthalle, the Museum of Modern Art and several others.
