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.

Although I live in DC where I'm spoiled by the free museums, I feel this museum is well worth the entrance fee. The collection of work is priceless. I spent the whole day admiring work and I hope to go again. I don't want to spoil the experience by talking about specific pieces but if you're in Germany and you... More

Spacious with lovely modern extension housing interesting post 1945 collection. The museum is well set out and entry at this time of year provides free entry to the sculpture museum nearby. Comprehensive old masters collection on top floor. The cafe on the ground level was open but I recommend the lovely cafe in the sculpture museum as an alternative -... More

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
