Museum Embankment, Frankfurt

4.8
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 .
