I was drawn to the Museum for the Robert Campin exhibit I saw advertised in the airport and in a flight magazine. I had a 10-hour layover and used the time to await the museum's opening, in the snow! I was a bit disappointed that most of the paintings were reputedly not by Campin, but by his protégé, Rogier van... More

Very rich, yet not overwhelming. Worth the visit. You'll get to know some of the German artists that are overlooked in museums elsewhere in the world. The café is also extremely relaxing, yet slightly expensive for a museum cafe.

The staedel has been renowned for Albrecht Dürer, Emil Nolde but the real gem is to be found underground in the permanent Contemporary Art Collection. And apart from sporting a very nice Café / Bistro it is a mere 15 minute walk from the nyt acclaimed Bahnhofsviertel with a nice variety of bars, Clubs, restaurants and other outlets.

Located along "Museum Row" the Staedel is a very good traditional art museum. Both their permanent collection (which includes the works of many of the first photographers) and their temporary exhibits are first class. While smaller than the Museum of Fine Art here in Boston or many of the NYC museums, the Staedel holds its own. It is easily reachable... More

Amazing works of art with plenty of descriptions in English. Super affordable to get in. Also has a LOVELY restaurant, Holbein's, attached to it. This is no typical sandwich shop; you can have a truly memorable culinary experience to accompany the culture richness of the museum's treasures. A lovely way to spend a cold or rainy afternoon.

The highlight of the museum for me was the Max Beckmann room, and the entire modern section (through 1945). The museum is bigger than you'd expect, so allow several hours. 1945-present is in the basement, Modern and Old Masters are upstairs.

Wow, what a great museum. I mean when you see one you have seen them all; not so, this is well worth a visit. I was pleasantly surprise how much I enjoyed this museum. Also, great locker system for your heavy coats which is only 1 or 2 euros which you get back when you leave. I just can't remember... More
