Terrific small art gallery with representation from all eras of Western art (to modern art). Changing collections worth a look. Shop and cafe are surprisingly large and worth allowing time to visit.

The museum has a wonderful collection which is not very large nevertheless, you can spend a really good time discovering peculiar pieces of the greatest masters of all times. Is perfect visit for a short staying in Frankfurt. The restaurant and the shop are very nice, I couldn't find books in english or maybe I didn't look for carefully.

Spending there nearly four hours, I still feel that I should had spared more time.. By mixing the old/classical and modern it gives the audience to travel in time. The current exhibition- Battle of the sexes- is also very impressive. It promises a very pleasant day for art lovers.

The Staedel has an excellent, if not overly large collection. The art is beautifully arranged & the museum is light & airy. They had a Vermeer, that was enough to make me very happy to have gone there.

Staedel is not so overwhelming as European must sees (Louvre, Prado, National Gallery etc) but with its small size and a very good selection of most important painting styles in the history of european painting, it is a truly nice experience. Recommended!

The collection has some lovely pieces in but the curators have had a strange idea about how this hangs together - I found it a little random to be honest - one minute you're in Dutch Masters and next you're looking at Max Ernst and Munch... some interesting minor German works and a clever exhibit on the backs of paintings...
