It is nice place, even if only for a coffee ... or a walk around the area. Last time I just went for the coffee shop, with a nice atmosphere about it ... parking can be difficult.

An excellent collection with major artists represented. The underground development for the contemporary collection which is integrated with the skylight studded lawn and the mirror installation on the adjacent wall is world class.

We visited the Staedel Museum for the first time on a very hot Sunday afternoon. There were not too many people about as the "Iron man" competition was being held in Frankfurt and the river banks were crowded. It is a beautiful and well-curated collection and we particularly enjoyed the contemporary section in the new lower extension.....a wonderful space. It... More

Loved the collection, loved the Museum shop and it has also a nice café. You can find in there all important painters, although not the most known paintings are represented... Of course, it is not a Louvre or Prado. But I enjoyed it very much!! Count at least 2-3 hours.

Wasn't impressed at having to pay for an audio guide (they were free in all the museums I visited in Berlin) but it was informative. I would have spent longer in the museum if it had not been so unbelievably hot!

We were disappointed, especially with the low number of Masters paintings. I also have to agree with an earlier review about the rude security guards.

This museum restaurant serves everything from light snacks to full meals. The setting, in a former courtyard, includes an outside area. Tables are well spaced. Good selection of wines by the glass and well prepared food. Worth a detour, not just if you are visiting the superb mueum (which you should!).

We visited the Staedel in Frankfurt on a weekday in June. There were no lines for tickets, no overcrowding, etc. that other reviewers mention, so perhaps we were just lucky. In any case, whether one is a fine art fan or not, this museum is a fantastic place to visit. I leave the details of that experience to the other... More

I love going to museums, but specialy when I can touche and interact with the pieces of art there. Beside, it's really beautiful, with a different architecture. It really worth a visit.
