Banking on history
Frankfurt doesn't just respect history, arts and culture - the city fairly well revels in them. Frankfurt stands out as one of the top cities in the world when it comes to museums, boasting no less than 40 dotted throughout the city. The best museums in Frankfurt can be found in the Museum Embankment district, close to Altstadt and hugging the banks of the Main. Whether you're interested in gothic art and architecture, film, avant-garde art, ancient sculpture, music or the life and works of Goethe, you'll find a venue to suit your interests. Must-see museums include the Archaeological Museum in the Carmelite Monastery which features exhibitions devoted to Frankfurt and its surrounds since prehistoric times, and the German Film Museum, dedicated to showcasing the origins, present and future of film and celebrating German and international filmmakers.
Get to Museum Embankment from your apartment hotel along Europa-Allee via Frankfurt Hbf. Take the S3 line and alight at Wiesbaden Hbf. Enjoy the picturesque walk through Altstadt to the banks of the Main.
