Art history buffs may reach nirvana in the museum's library, which contains more than 100,000 books from different eras. The gift shop sells an astounding 6,000 prints and books. The onsite cafe offers city skyline views. Put Städel into our Frankfurt tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Located on the waterfront in the Museum quarter. Entrance without tourist and Museum very expensive cards, 14 euros. Interesting the second floor rooms of the old masters. At the bottom of the contemporary art.

  • Who wants to experience significant works of the middle ages, the Reformation, Baroque, romantic and modern local and understand, here is the right place. Empire is the Städel. A Bűrgerstiftung first. Today, Frankfurt Bűrgerstiftung donate for this special collection of art that can keep up with the large museums in Berlin and Műnchen. Their names are carved on the first staircase into the wall and read is known. I love the Kirchner, which can be seen here and take time two three times in the year, again and again to discover unknown to me.

  • I went to this museum because it is the closest to the hotel and had a pleasant surprise. Museum of good size (not huge), with various collections (modern sacred art, pictures, medieval ...) and a wonderful shop! Be sure to visit the garden on the back, that tb is a work of art!

  • The exhibitions include paintings/sculptures from 1500's to contemporary. The contemporary floor is specially interesting. The museum is quite big compared to other museums I visited in Germany. There is a phone app you can download which contains a guide for selected pieces. The whole museum can take up to 2-3 hours to cover.
  • The section with abstract stuff like Picasso was really nice. But I think they accidentally added some blurry photos to one of the exhibits, or maybe just some random pictures off of someone's camera phone. Otherwise really nice.
  • An incredible collection of art from the 1600's to today. Staff were also very helpful, and as a backpacker it was great to be able to store my bag for free while I was there. The cafe is also quite good.
  • Very interesting Nice painting from famius french painters : renoir manet poussin delacroix.
  • Great museum with a nice selection of Flemish and Germain artists. The collection ranges from primitives to modern art. Come here early and enjoy the quietness of the place.

Where to stay in Frankfurt

Hauptwache, Konstablerwache, and the Main river enclose the heart of the city, an area of activity with a range lodging options. The old section of the Sachsenhausen area is also an epicenter of activity with a range of accommodations; it also offers a vibrant nightlife. For short stay, consider lodging in the Bahnhofsviertel area near the main train station, which provides easy access to the city center and to international train transport.
