The spectacular festival of art and culture on the banks of the Maine River is one of Frankfurt's most popular outdoor attractions and arguably the city's most popular festival. The Museumsuferfest attracts artists and musicians from all over the world and there are a series of stages showcasing great music of all kinds as well as numerous world-class exhibitions. One of the main focus points of the festival is, of course, the collection of fine museums along the river bank, all of which put up special exhibitions and offer special deals to the public during the weekend of the festival. Stalls along the picturesque riverside offer a wide variety of food and drink making this festival a fun culinary experience as well. Apart from the concerts and dramatic performances of all kinds there are many events organised around the festival including workshops, lectures, discussions and the like. A fireworks display on the last evening brings the festival to a close.
