Thanks to its varied and comprehensive cultural offering, Frankfurt am Main enjoys an excellent reputation at both the national and international level. The highlights of the Frankfurt cultural scene undoubtedly include the ‘Museumsufer’, where 11 well-known museums are lined up like a string of pearls on both sides of the Main. Around 50 other museums and exhibition halls, including, for example, the Schirn Kunsthalle, are situated in the immediate vicinity or in a central location.
The Main metropolis offers many renowned stages: the Frankfurt opera house has already been awarded the title of ‘Opera House of the Year’ for its overall artistic performance. And the Frankfurt theatre sets new accents in local and national cultural life with its own high-quality productions as well as top-notch co-productions. In addition to these two municipal theatres, a lively free theatre scene has also established itself with more than 20 venues. Foreign-language productions are offered primarily by the English Theatre and the International Theatre Frankfurt. The Old Opera House in Frankfurt, with its world-renowned late-classical façade, is an important concert and event venue far beyond the boundaries of the Rhine-Main region.
We would like to introduce some museums and theatres to you. Further information on exhibition centres, private galleries and theatre life in Frankfurt can be found on the English-language portal of the City of Frankfurt am Main. The portal also has an overview of other cultural topics, of institutions and initiatives as well as events and current trends. For example, you can get important information about Frankfurt’s music and literature scenes, architecture projects, activities in the area of new media and about Frankfurt as a city of film.
