The focus on Goethe and the lovely restaurant in the premises - Holbein- delightful! Masterpieces well displayed and without the general rush that one sees in the museums around the world. Plus the location that brings you right to the river where you can stroll along the Maine.

Spacious, bright, uncrowded. Only drawback was cost of entry €12, although I did receive free entry to the sculpture museum a short walk away. The Holbein Restaurant within the Staedel is quite good too.

Another great German museum not to be missed. The setting for the contemporary art collection in the basement is beautiful and should not be missed. Old Masters collection on the top floor includes works by Vermeer, Rembrandt,Tiepolo, Holbein, Durer, Grunewald and van Eyck. On the first floor you will find works from 1800-1945 with key works by the major Impressionists... More

This contains an excellent collection of European paintings from the 14th to the 21st century, with an emphasis on German and Netherlandish (both north and south) art from the 15th through the 17th century. There are also French, Italian, and Spanish works, and a smattering of paintings from the New World, among them a striking head of Goethe by Andy... More

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!
