Frankfurt/Main - Museum Quay Festival
Frankfurt's museums lining the Main's riverbanks put on a multi-faceted program with many attractions. Spread over three days, it features a non-stop program of cultural events to please all ages and also takes in numerous major museums, theatres and concert halls across the city.
A firm festival favorite is the dragon boat race, bringing Chinese mythology to life on the River Main. Seeing out the weekend with a bang, the festival saves the best for last and usually ends with an impressive riverside display of fireworks and music on Sunday evening.
