Museum Embankment, Frankfurt

4.7
This river embankment is called Museum Embankment because of its large concentration of museums. Set off on a walk by the Main and pop into a few museums. The most famous of the bunch is the Städel art gallery. Visit the Ikonen Museum to see its collection of Russian, Bulgarian, Greek, and other religious icons, or try the Deutsches Filmmuseum to learn about the development of movie-making. Many of the museums are home to trendy restaurants or cafes. If it's a clear day, have a bite to eat in the Museum Angewandte's bistro, which offers view of Metzler Park. The lawns by the riverbanks make an ideal picnic spot. Plan to visit Museum Embankment during your Frankfurt vacation using our convenient Frankfurt vacation planner .

  • Very worthwhile, firstly a short walk and secondly the museums, which are all nearby. Here you could certainly spend 2 days without getting bored! If you have time, it is certainly worth visiting 2-3 museums.

  • The museum shore in Frankfurt is one-sense. On the southern bank of the Main, 9 small and large museums of different orientations line up for a few kilometres. From the world-renowned "Städel" with its valuable art collections to communication, architecture, film or icons, the spectrum is enormous. But also the northern bank of the Main has a lot to offer. Here you will find the Jewish Museum and the Historical Museum with the Children's Museum. In addition, there are other museums on both sides of the river, such as the Schirn, the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. To my knowledge, such a density of museums is unique in Europe. The waterfront promenade is not a highlight, but invites you for a leisurely walk with a view of the skyline.
