We had a lengthy layover in Frankfurt and decided to head in to the city to visit the Staedel Museum and the Roemer Platz. The museum is well situated and organized. The old masters are well displayed. Lots of other modern and contemporary art on display. The Holbein restaurant was also a welcome treat. Stairways do not have full handrails... More

I spent a great, relaxing Sunday at the Staedel during a recent business trip. It is a very manageable museum with lots of first rate art from lots of major artists and different artistic periods. There is an app you can download that lets you listen to lectures and descriptions of the art--that was great. Definitely worth a special trip... More

I'm more of a park guy than museum one, but this place was really worth the stop. There are so many art exhibits you are bound to find something you like. They have Rembrandt, Monet and Botticelli. You will even find a Warhol in the modern exhibit. Currently they have a Battle of the Sexes exhibit which was quite crowded.... More

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.

Today, the museum houses one Europe's leading collections on Northern European medieval art. Its collection also encompasses art from Antiquity to today. A few years ago, a new photographic art section was added to the... More

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.
