Frankfurt celebrates Museums on the Main

Two million people visit the Museum Embankment Festival every year in the banking city of Frankfurt. The event is now taking place again from August 25th to 27th.

It’s counted among the largest and most spectacular art and culture festivals in Europe: the Museum Embankment Festival (Museumsuferfest) in the heart of Frankfurt. It’s therefore no surprise that around two million people are drawn to the Main every year when the museums on the river’s north and south banks open their doors until well into the night.

In front of the impressive backdrop of the Frankfurt skyline, a rich and varied spectrum of stage presentations, colourful live performances and culinary specialities from all over the world complement the programme of the three-day museum festival, which ends on August 27th at 10 pm with a glorious firework display.

Here you can view the programme for the Museum Embankment Festival 2017 online or download the programme booklet in pdf format.
