  • The older stuff may be what this place is famous for but really liked the modern art in the lower level. It is a must see if you are in Frankfurt. It is close to other museums as well.  more »
  • It was a pleasant surprise, though the visit to this museum. TAM an excellent collection of paintings and at that time was a photo exhibition of great quality, with very relevant names of world photography.

  • Although it is not on the scale of London's National Gallery, there is much to see here and it was not too crowded when we visited on a Saturday afternoon. The hot chocolate and apple tart in the on-s...  more »

  • Wonderful fine arts museum on the "museum bank" of the river Main in the heart of Frankfurt. New and special exhibitions regularly. Audioguides in many languages, and regularly scheduled guided tours of the current special exhibitions, either German or English. Städel Museum is very popular among Frankfurt inhabitants, so some Saturday and Sundays are crowded, especially when the special exhibits are new. The Städel is one of several outstanding Frankfurt museums. If you are staying on in Frankfurt, the Museumskarte is a bargain. After paying for this annual ticket, access to all Frankfurt museums is available at no additional entrance fee
  • Security guard blocks my way back to the entry and has to be reassured by his colleague, just because I returned to the cash counter to check if I’d got a discount for my Frankfurt card. I had no idea there was so much prejudice against asking a question. I didn’t have my coat with me it was already in the cloak room,also a civil question is better than body blocking someone you know Städel.
  • I've been here repeatedly and loved every display I've seen so far!!! Fortunately I'm retired so I've been able to see most of the displays without the crowds, but the redhead and I have waited until the last weekend to see some of the more memorable visits ... do yourself a favor and go when it's not busy!!!
  • The Städel is running a grand Matisse/Bonnard Exhibition at the moment. The standing exhibits run from Classic to Impressionist and Expressionist and a lot in between. The restaurant is upscale, the cafe cozy and the bookstore/souvenir shop has something for everyone including the youngest!
  • This is a very nice museum with a great collection and temporal exibitions like the Matisse Bonnard which I visited.
