A Frankfurt museum of world rank
Founded in 1815 as a civic foundation by the banker and merchant Johann Friedrich Städel, the Städel Museum is considered the oldest and most prestigious museum foundation in Germany. Under one roof, the Städel Collection offers a nearly complete overview of 700 years of European art history – from the early 14th century to the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical Modernism right up to the present day. In total, the collection comprises around 3,100 paintings, 660 sculptures, more than 4,600 photographs and over 100,000 drawings and graphics.
