How To Get Here
Art + Culture in Frankfurt
Frankfurt never stands still. Street festivals with more than 3 million visitors each, exhibitions with worldwide reputation, concerts from classical to extraordinary. You love culture? You will love Frankfurt.
Cultural Hot Spot: Frankfurt's Museum Embankment
A unique interaction of different arts: With 26 museums the Museum Embankment Frankfurt is one of the most important and diverse museum locations in Europe. And, all of Frankfurt's museums are located close to each other. Old Masters + modern art, film + photography, architecture + design... Here culture comes alive. The museums in Frankfurt now draw in 2 million visitors a year. Recently the Städel Museum and the SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT gained international attention with exhibitions like "Botticelli" or "Edvard Munch - The Modern Eye". Apart from Frankfurt's museums, the riverbanks of the Main are ideal for strolling. In addition, we recommend wandering through the Sachsenhausen district, enjoying the inspiring atmosphere of the local cafés and letting the art and cultural scene of Frankfurt sink in.
Thanks to the proximity of Le Méridien Frankfurt to the Main riverbanks, many museums can be reached within a few walking minutes. Thus, you can also discover the whole art scene of Frankfurt even if you are short on time.

The Städel Museum is one of the most important art museums in the world as well as the oldest and most significant museum founded in Germany. Over three floors pieces from 700 years of art history are exhibited - Old Masters, modernism, contemporary art. Thus, the museum lets the development of art come to life for the visitor.

Leisure & delights - discover Frankfurt
Frankfurt outdoors: guides & tours
A city walk through Frankfurt is always an exciting way to discover the contrasting architecture and be inspired by the atmosphere of the city.
In addition, the Frankfurter Stadtevents offer a new perspective - it is an online portal with a wide range of theme guided tours, e.g. through different districts, on skyscrapers or in typical locations.
Or discover Frankfurt by boat. Different boat cruises on the Main river offer an inspiring view - along the MUSEUM EMBANKMENT up to the architecturally interesting new building of the European Central Bank.
Eat & drink: enjoy Frankfurt
Unexpected: Many museums in Frankfurt have fantastic cafés and restaurants. Our tip: Experience the fine, international cuisine at Holbein's, the Restaurant at the Städel Museum. Or discover the local food: You can enjoy real Hessian specialties such as Handkäs' or Schneegestöber in the district Alt-Sachsenhausen with its rustic apple wine pubs.
Another tip is the Münchener Straße - directly around the corner from Le Méridien, the City Hotel in Frankfurt. Here, international specialty restaurants stand side by side. But also the Turkish, Indian or African supermarkets offering typical delicacies are worth visiting.
Sights you should have seen.
Standing on the Römerberg and looking at the 600 years old city hall, the "Römer", it is not far to one of the city's most beautiful lookouts: After having climbed 328 steps you have a fascinating perspective over Frankfurt from the tower of the Imperial Cathedral - historic half-timbered houses in the foreground and the skyline in the background as well as the course of the Main river through the whole city.
Do you want an "easier" way to see an incomparable view? In this case we recommend taking the elevator to the 55th floor of the Main Tower in the financial district.
Located in the center, near the main station, Le Méridien Hotel Frankfurt is the ideal starting point for the curious and the discoverers: Within a few footsteps you reach the Main riverbanks - with its renowned museum embankment. Or be inspired by the fascinating atmosphere and the culinary diversity of the trendy neighborhood "Bahnhofsviertel".
And: Le Méridien Frankfurt itself is a part of the city's cultural life - including the UNLOCK ART program.
