The Städel Museum in Frankfurt is one of the oldest and most prestigious art museums in Germany.

The museum, founded in 1815 by the businessman Johann Friedrich Städel, is housed in a monumental building since 1878; the museum was expanded in 2012 after a design by the German architects Schneider + Schumacher.

The collection of the Städel Museum is quite diverse and includes paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, and prints, dating from the 14th century to the present day.
The permanent exhibition of the museum features artists like Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, Fra Angelico, Botticelli, Jan van Eyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Alberto Giacometti, Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, and Wolfgang Tillmans, to name just a few.

The Städel Museum organizes temporary exhibitions, guided tours, art talks, and special events.
Along with exhibition galleries, the museum complex, fully accessible to disabled people, also accommodates a media library, a study room, a shop, a cafe, and a restaurant.
