Lots of TA reviews said to buy tix in advance to avoid the queues. Not sure if it was just the English-language version of the website, or when I was searching, but we nearly didn’t go because there were no online tickets available and thought...More

A bit away from our hotel. On the Riverfront in an old mansion. Really enjoyed the visit. Virtually just one of 11 museums along the riverfront. Well worth your while if you like fine art.

If you are into the old Masters, this is the museum for you. Lots of pieces that I recall seeing in art books. Nice descriptions. Cafe very comfy. A nice 1/2 day experience.

There is a special exhibition of the works by Lotte Laserstein at the moment. Never heard of her until I visited the museum and actually like some of her works. You'll also find works by the masters e.g., Rembrandt. Some Orthodox and Western icons are...More

I love art museums, but this was such a let down. Too many obscure, dark paintings. It’s only painting worth seeing is Botticelli’s Portrait of a Lady. And one decent Renoir. Also, the museum employees were very rude and condescending. Save your money and go...More

Great Museum, I was very happy that my good friends took me there during my visit in Frankfurt. I hope that I will come back soon again to enjoy this nice city here at the main river

Undoubtedly, one of the best art museums around (next to Lenbachhaus, RA, Prado): well curated, spacious, pretty well explained and of impressive architecture (enjoy the mix of traditional and futuristic buildings). Museum store is great, lots of books, restaurant with stylish atmosphere.

We traveled through Frankfurt a few years ago. Could not get into Staedel that day. Returned to Frankfurt for 2 nights expressly to visit Staedel. So glad we did. Worth planning a trip around this museum! Great exhibits - both permanent and also special. Finally,...More

We were fortunate enough to visit during the Lotte Laserstein exhibition, but even if this had not been showing, the museum has enough treasures to merit a long, leisurely stroll through the galleries. The reception was particularly helpful in phoning for a taxi to get...More
