My husband and I spent the whole Saturday in the museum. It contains a wonderful art collection, my favorites were the Flemish paintings. Unlike some other exhibitions of art, the collection on the show in Städel is not crammed, so you can really enjoy each piece of art. The light in the museum is very pleasant and favorable to the...

This museum is best saved for a rainy/cold day when it's impossible to enjoy the outdoors, because you will be spending about 3 to 4 hours in here. You'll want to stay that long for two reasons - it's pretty darn expensive to get in, and the collective is remarkable. We skipped the audioguides but the museum has write-ups in... More

Amazing collection of arts and painting rivaling the national museums of old. Spent half a day appreciating the arts and had a round of coffee in between.

As per the title the museum cannot be faulted on content, design and layout. Visit! However, some staff members were unnecessarily very rude and unhelpful. The entrance to the building was littered with firework debris and broken glass and we visited on 9 January!

A nice collection where I focused mostly on the top floor, the old masters. It is a good size museum, lots to see but you aren't dead tired after going through it. And I like the architecture of the main hall/stairs. Cool exhibit in one room where they hung the paintings so that you could see the back of it... More

Seven hundred years of art in one location --- the Staedel Museum of Frankfurt. The collection is amazing --- slightly different than other art museums. The collection features top-notch artists and pieces. This museum can easily compete with The Louvre or the Metropolitan Museum of Art or, indeed, any other highly acclaimed museum of art in the world. We spent... More

You might be thinking that this is a provincial art gallery with a few second rate masters and some local artists. Think again. This is an amazing collection with some jaw-dropping paintings that would be looked on with envy by the trustees of the Louvre, the National Gallery London or the Metropolitan in New York. My favourites were a fantastic... More

Before coming to Frankfurt, I was in The Louvre. Even though the art collection in Staedel is not as diverse as that in The Louvre, it is still rather impressive. The museum has 2 upper levels and one lower ground level. Each level features art pieces from the different time periods; the higher you go, the older the art pieces... More
