"Museumsuferfest: My favourite Frankfurt event" Museums Tip by christine.j

Museums, Frankfurt am Main: 82 reviews and 125 photos


Each year, usual during the last weekend in August, the Museumsuferfest takes place. This year it was held earlier, because of the world cup. You can buy a button, 4 Euro in 2006, and this will grant you entrance in almost all museums of Frankfurt for the time of the fest. A huge saving!
In addition, there are stages where all kinds of music are played, the museums give guided tours, boat races are held on the river, rides for the kids are put up etc.
You can also try lots of different food. Frankfurt is most international city in Germany with the highest percentage of non-Germans living there and it seems as if every country has a food stall selling their national specialties.
So you can eat your way around the world.
The name means "Museums bank festival", because most of the museums are situated at the bank of the river Main. But when you split it up, it means "muse around the bank festival".

Address: Along the river and in the centre
