The Museum Embankment Festival, or “Museumsufer Fest”, is an annually held festival on the banks of the River Main, and it attracts more than 3 million visitors annually.
It is structured as a tribute to the city’s museum landscape, uniquely combining art, theatre, music, dance, and cuisine.
When you come to the festival for the first time, you will be impressed by how big it is, and it takes some time to get an overview of it all.
You can explore one kilometre on each side of the river Main and even one more kilometre with sales stalls on the road above the promenade.
The program for all stages is presented on the festival’s homepage, and it can be wise to mark your favourites in advance.
You’ll also have an opportunity to visit all participating museums, for a low price, during the Museumsufer festival.
They will remain open well into the night, and if you want to visit them, you’ll need to get the special Museum Embankment Festival button.
It can be bought in the Tourist Information Offices, the central train station, and Frankfurt museums.
