  • A must for Frankfurt - a visit to the Städel Museum. Very comprehensive collection from the different eras of painting. Gigantic the new department of modern art in the underground halls. If you are interested in art, you should take time there and bring time with you.

  • Fantastic local museum with a lot of work on display. 3 floors, top is early artists, middle floor is classical(?), basement is modern. They also had a featured Picasso room on the ground floor when I went there. There were so many pieces that one day per floor wouldn't do it justice.
  • A lovely museum full of amazing art. It has everything from the old masters to contemporary genius. Anyone that enjoys any type of art will find something here to enjoy. There is a lovely restaurant on the inside as well. Definitely worth the stop.
