The Frankfurt Museumsufer is one of the most important locations for museums in Germany. The diversity and quality of Frankfurt's museums make the city particularly well known among art connoisseurs.
Am Sachsenhäuser Mainufer, between Iron Bridge and Peace Bridge, there are 13 museums that were rebuilt or newly built by world-famous architects during the term of office of Hilmar Hoffmann, the former head of the Frankfurt Department of Culture, between 1980 and 1990.
These are Städel Museum (Städel), the Deutsches Filmmuseum, the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, the Museum für Kommunikation, the Museum für Angewandte Kunst (MAK) and the Skulpturenmuseum Liebieghaus.
This flagship art and culture mile cost the Main metropolis a lot.
Originally 1993 only as a temporary replacement for the temporarily dismantled restoration < link www.frankfurt-tipp.de/freizeit/s/freizeit/der-eiserne-steg-eine-der-bekanntesten-fussgaengerbruecken-deutschlands.html _blank>Iron Bridge, the Holbeinsteg as a postmodern, colourful "cantilever chair" quickly won the hearts of Frankfurters.
And so the hanging construction of steel cables, struts and masts by architect Albert Speer simply remained in place.
In addition, the Holbeinsteg represents the optimal connection from Frankfurt city centre to the Museumsufer, and has long been an integral part of the cityscape.
There are three more highlights on the Museumsufer:
· the annual Museumsuferfest
· the annual "Night of the Museums"
>· the flea market that takes place every second Saturday
On the last weekend in August, the Museumsufer celebrates itself at the three-day Museumsuferfest. On both banks of the Main there is an exuberant folk festival atmosphere.
A diverse, multicultural programme with numerous stage performances, live music, dragon boat races and artist performances will be presented to the over two million visitors.
This will be accompanied by culinary delights from all over the world and, as a rule, with lots of sunshine! The weather god seems to be a friend of art and culture ;-)
