This is a private collection with many gems. I don't think I've been to a museum that had as so many Symbolist paintings. I assume there are so many because they were contemporaneous with the collector's (Stadel) acquisitions. There are also many Northern and Italian Renaissance works. The two Botticellis are exemplary. If these don't interest you, there are many Medieval, and 19th-21st century works, including photographs.
The museum is located on a "museum row" along the riverbank, so you can make a day of it.

Visited the museum on New Years Day. I don’t think there was too much open in the city and the museum was popular with people queuing outside for tickets. There was also a long queue for the ladies toilets.

You can’t take any bags round the museum and need to leave these in secure lockers ....you will need a €1 coin for each locker (you get this back).

Entry was €18 which although ‘pricey’ enabled me to see an incredible Van Gogh exhibition assembled from around the world. The rest of the museum contained some other wonderful art including Monet, Cezanne, Vermeer etc. All the paintings were very accessible.

The ‘cafe’ is closer to a formal restaurant with nice table cloths, table d’hote menu and pricing to match. There was a bit of a queue, so we didn’t go in.

The admission cost and crowds put me off a bit, but it undoubtedly has a very good art collection.

Buy your tickets online. If not you will have to wait for a possible opening that requires 10 others without a ticket.

Once we were in, it was a great time. We focused on Rembrandt exhibit. The audio guides were a great help in explaining the story behind the artist, paintings, his students and his teacher.

If I could, I would rate this museum 3.5. The museum features Contemporary Art, Modern Art and Old Master Paintings. I really enjoyed the exhibit by Andreas Muhe, that featured some very interesting pieces with Angela Merkel, and some art from a series he did on the Chernobyl disaster. The Old Master's Painting exhibits were not air conditioned on the day we visited. The areas featuring the Contemporary and Modern Art were both air conditioned. I didn't feel the museum was worth it for 10 Euro admission price. AND this was advertised as a 'Special Price'. The museum Store is nice. The cafe is quite expensive.

Currently has an exhibition on Renoir and Rococo, which you really shouldn't miss. Art over 2 floors and many centuries. It's got paintings by very well known and not so well known artists. Only drawback is the restaurant is not very friendly, and also very expensive.

This museum really does have art that spans 700 years of history and is very well laid-out (easy to climb stairs and well-designed galleries). Keep a look out for some coffee table art books left on the benches which are actually a catalog of the main painting exhibits throughout the museum. You can easily look up in the book, for example, paintings by Rembrandt, see a picture of them, and then quickly physically locate them in the museum. Very clever!

I have been to the Staedel Museum many times -- they have a wonderful permanent collection, and frequently have wonderful special exhibitions as well. I most recently had the good fortune to visit the special exhibition "Making Van Gogh", which focused on the particular love that German museums, galleries and private collectors had for Van Gogh and his art at the turn of the Twentieth Century, and Van Gogh's strong influence on early Twentieth Century German Expressionist artists. The exhibit was beautifully curated and arranged, and the explanations in the wall text and the audio guide were great. One of the best art exhibitions that I have ever seen!

Great museum to spend a couple or half a day if you are feeling ambitious to see much of the pieces here.

The building itself is simple but pretty, the focus of course is the art inside.

I think it’s great way to get to know a city and see what kind of art and culture that’s key and important to the citizens. Plus you just get to see some cool art that’s not in our DIA museum back at home.

All shops were closed in Germany this Saturday so we had to find something to go. The Stadel Museum was a great choice. A good introduction to European and German art from the fifteen century till now. Please ensure you go to the basement for the modern art exhibition and enjoy the nice surroundings and not just the art.
