I started learning modern art appreciation in recent years but still at kindergarten level. Though ranked as No. 1 Top Thing To Do in Frankfurt in Tripadvisor, I was a bit hesitant to pay 14euro to Staedel at the beginning. Once I got there, this impression totally changed. It is so worth it! The museum has 3 beautiful floors: Old... More

Very good museum: large range of art works between 1600s- 2000s .... not only focusing on German Artists but it was very good to learn some of them..... Not only classical paintings, but also good choice of modern (renoir, degas, some german artists) and contemporary artists ( andy warhol, tony craigg....) Building's architecture is very good... built in 1865? But... More

Highly recommend art museum that spans Renaissance up to contemporary. Lots of impressive pieces, and works of German artists I had not really known before, so that was a good discovery. If you only have one museum to visit, this is it. Lunch in the cafe is a good idea, and dinner at Holbein's (attached) quite impressive fine dining.

A couple of years ago I visited the Staedel with my boyfriend and really enjoyed it. Great location at the Main River and beautiful building. I would definitely recommend it.

This museum is probably the busiest tourist spot over all when I visited Frankfurt in March. Many art lovers and appreciate came and spend time here. I'm not into art at all but it is a good place to see some European pieces and Scandinavian works. Personally I recommend Munch's work. His most famous piece, the Scream, is in Oslo,... More

Spend 4EUR to hire a speaker, listening to the guidance and you would not go astray. In addition, prepare 1EUR to save your packages and coats. The required background knowledge is the architecture history and painting genre knowledege from Ancient Rome to Medieval and then to Modern times. 最好能懂各种绘画风格与体裁,最好能懂一些西方建筑史、西方建筑特色,租一个随身听的讲解,不然就会变成睁眼瞎。。。还要准备一欧元的硬币用于存放东西。

I'm a thorough museum visitor, and I rented the English audio guide for 4 Euros (on top of the 14 Euro adult admission). It took me about 4 hours to do the entire museum, so consider that a maximum time. Contemporary exhibit was particularly good. Often I find contemporary exhibits not that interesting, but this one was grounded enough to... More
