City of art

Frankfurt am Main

Nowhere else in Germany do celebrated cultural institutions vie for attention with such a spectacular skyline. Frankfurt attracts connoisseurs of both the fine and the performing arts. The museum embankment along the banks of the Main makes Frankfurt one of the leading museum locations, not just in Germany but in Europe.

The mix of distinguished museums, outstanding company collections and highly acclaimed exhibitions, supplemented by a range of first-class stage productions, is without equal across the country.

The Städel Museum has its origins in a private art collection and is now one of the main attractions of the museum embankment. The Deutsche Bank Collection brings together important contemporary artists, and Frankfurt Opera has been voted 'Best opera house in Germany' by critics several times.

Alongside such prestigious institutions, Frankfurt's creative talents, artists' groups and gallery owners all contribute to the vibrant local arts scene. Two studio complexes offer artists ideal conditions for their workshops.

The city of Frankfurt supports this diversity with the largest annual culture budget in Germany, making it the country's undisputed city of art.
