This is a lovely area to walk and a good place for photos with the wide river, buildings and bridges. It was all very clean and well maintained and although a short, easy walk from the old town, the views are certainly a contrast.

I love to take friends from abroad to the Mainkai, especially the Museumsufer and watch the opposite skyline, it is a view to kill for and it is an amazing scene during daylight as well as at night with the illumination on the bank skyscrapers. So come here twice.

i didn't see such sky scarpers in my trip in Germany packed together. The place is very fantastic during the night with the lights over the bridge and lights from the high rises is so romantic but you need to be along the the Rhine river or one of the restaurant next the river.

I never saw Mainkai free of people--walking, biking, fishing--always people. With the views of the Main and the Frankfurt skyline, I don't blame any of the people utilizing this street. How can I, when I used it as much as possible.

Very lively place where people are walking around, exercising and hanging out. The Frankfurt skyline is fantastic. Try picking a nice sunny day if you are lucky ;).

This open space is one of the many reasons Frankfurt is a beautiful city. Take a walk along the river, take some pictures, or just hang out and people watch.

or just sit and watch the Main with your partner. Bring your own food or buy something in one of the cafes around.

This is the street alonf the river Main where you can best see the skyline of Frankfurt. It's even nicer at night when the buildings are enlightened. During the summer period many people sit in the grass and enjoy the sun and a drink where boats stop nearby and serve food and beverages.

If you are staying or just transit few hours, take a train and visit the city. This is one of the beautiful streets you have to visit, so close to the bridges, streets, ferries, shops, restaurants, etc etc...
