If you like arts, especially paintings from different historical periods, it is a must go. Paintings from the 14th century to actual time and many famous artists are there.

I visited this Museum as I like art. Very impressive collection of paintings, nice gardens and I recommend it to anyone who likes art. Don't expect a "second Louvre", but certainly it worth the money (12 Euro). The expected visiting time is approx. 2 hours. Very clean place, and I would suggest purchasing and using Frankfurt Museum Card.

With works from many master artists including Durer, Vermeer, Boticelli, Rafael, Degas, Rodin, and Renoir, it is easy to get lost in the museum for a couple hours. I am not a fan of Frankfurt as a whole, but if you are in the town and have time to kill, this is a great place to do it. Make sure... More

We went for the Nolde (among others) exhibition and on a weekend. The exhibit was excellent, but the experience was not. We probably should have gone on a weekday.

Concentrated on the early works which are absolutely stunning. Well organised and well lit pictures. Not enough seats to rest on to appreciate the works. Breadth and quality of the collection is world class.

3 sections: Old master painting (1300-1800), Master Art (1800-1945) and Contemporary Art (1945-Present) + Temporary exhibition + Garden which remains opened after the museum closure. The garden at the back of the building have some few art pieces but is also the ceiling of the great architectural extension where is the Contemporary Art. Definitively worth taking the walk around the... More

Good historical survey, some English labelling. Cafe very reasonable. Frankfurt Museum Card is probably best way; it's €18 for 2 consecutive days for all of Frankfurt's museums. Staedel is €12 single. Unlike Cologne this does not include public transport on first day. If you intend to do a couple of days museum visting I'd suggest the card and then Tageskarte... More

The most important museum in frankfurt is the städel. The names of the artists that take part in the gallery speak for themselves, thus it's seriously worth the price of the ticket. Also, the maintenance is excellent.
