WORLD-CLASS SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS
"[...] a show that is without precedent in Germany.”
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 13 November 2009
"The exhibition of the year!”
Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, 26 November 2006
As one of Germany’s most important picture galleries, the Städel Museum has an outstanding reputation. A key factor in the Städel’s high profile on the national and international scene is its lively exhibition programme. The public response to the changing special exhibitions is enormous. With around 400,000 visitors in 2010, the Städel Museum increased its visitor numbers for the seventh year running.
The point of departure for all of the Städel’s presentations – from small "cabinet” of a few selected works to large survey exhibitions and retrospectives – is its high-quality collection. The museum’s own works are complemented by loans from other leading collections all over the world with which the Städel has a long history of close co-operation. Our ambitious exhibition projects, in which outstanding works are brought together in Frankfurt, can be realized only with the support of our sponsors and our partners in business and in the media.
