Frankfurt’s series of riverside museums, the Museumsufer Frankfurt, is among the world’s most important museum ensembles. Avantgarde and old masters, spectacular exhibitions, exciting local history, Goethe and his creative heirs, world culture and financial culture, design and the prehistoric world – these are but some of the marvelous array of themes covered by Frankfurt’s museums in an ensemble of buildings quite unique in Europe.
Twenty-six museums conveniently located in close proximity to each other and within walking-distance of the city centre form the heart of Frankfurt’s museum scene. The Museumsufer Frankfurt (Frankfurt Museum Embankment) located between Eiserner Steg and Friedensbrücke comprises 13 museums by the river alone and just as many and more in the vicinity. Museums further off joined the association.
In addition, Frankfurt is known for an attractive series of cultural events. Not only the Night of the Museums in spring, but above all the Museum Embankment Festival in summer is a true highlight: As one of the biggest cultural events in Europe it attracts large numbers of visitors to its riverine setting every last weekend in August for a major celebration.
