Staedel is the 'old' art gallery on the river in Frankfurt. There are many “collection” of different galleries. All of the collections are good, interesting and nice. I really enjoyed the photography exhibition

First of all, recognition to the Staedel Museum for allowing visitors to take photographs of the artwork. Second, the artwork included detailed information in both German and English, and of course the employees of the Staedel all spoke fluent English. The Staedel has a reasonably good collection of works for a museum of its size, especially by German artists, but... More

We visited the Staedel on a lazy Saturday and enjoyed it thoroughly. There is a Vermeer along with the famous painting of Goethe in Italy. The enjoyed the modem section's Beckmann works too. The building was super clean and well-lit. probably one of the best lighting schemes in any art museum I've ever visited. I'd visit again.

Lots to see! Nice array, but make sure you're ready to take them all in. You can was spend 2 hours, even if not stopping at every painting.

This is the 'old' art gallery on the river in Frankfurt which is part of a long 'collection' of different galleries and museums. The space itself is beautiful, quiet and well-laid out. The permanent collections are good and we also saw a photography exhibition which was very interesting.

This is a great art gallery. It has three great collections under one roof: Old Masters, modern (19th and 20th century) and contemporary (late 20th, 21st century). The highlights for me are the modern collection and in particular the Max Beckmann and Max Lieberman pictures and the gallery housing the contemporary art (which is mostly tosh but set in an... More

I have been to the Staetel many times and this June was no different than past experiences. They had a wonderful exhibition as well as a lovely permanent collection. Make sure to give this visit enough time to take it all in or better yet go over multiple days so you can really absorb the art. The cafe and restaurant... More

Good collection. They basically have a piece of every artist necessary to show a wide range of art through the centuries. Manet, Monet, degas, the old Dutch amsters, Italian masters, etc. I really enjoyed the photography exhibition.

The entrance cost for this museum is minimal and it is nicely laid out. There are some beautiful works of art and is worth a visit if you are in Frankfurt.

Lots of great artwork covering pre-renaissance to today. I especially loved the Warhol of Goethe using inspiration form the Tischbein original in the same gallery. I covered the museum in three easy hours and did not feel that I missed anything.
