The Städel Museum
is open

Current Information

700 years of art history under one roof. Welcome to the Städel Museum!

Your health and safety are our priority. This is why the museum’s reopening coincides with a hygiene plan, which has been developed and implemented according to official regulations. Precautionary measures for protection against infection include – but are not limited to – a visitor limit and regulation of visitors through tickets booked for time slots (available online), an optimized system for visitor traffic within the museum, as well as increased sanitation of strategic areas.
The regulated distance of at least 1 ½ meters between individuals, as well as sneeze- and cough etiquette, are to be observed at all times. Visitors are required to wear mouth- and nose protection. Masks may be brought from home or purchased at the ticket desk within the museum.

We are looking forward to your visit! Stay safe!

We are happy to announce that the duration of all special exhibitions has been extended. In addition to the current presentation of works from the collection, the special exhibition „EN PASSANT. Impressionism in Sculpture” will be shown to the visiting public for the first time with the re-opening of the museum. This special exhibition has been extended until October 25th. The scheduled exhibition of the Department of Prints and Drawings, “Städel’s Legacy. Master Drawings from the Founder’s Collection”, will be opened on May 13th. The newly presented permanent exhibition of our Contemporary Art collection, “BACK TO THE PRESENT. New Perspectives, New Works – The Collection from 1945 to Today”, will open to the public on May 19th.

Due to the international restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, in cooperation with our partner, the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, we have decided to change the dates of the exhibition “Becoming Rembrandt: Creativity and Competition in Amsterdam, ca. 1630–1655” at the Städel Museum. It will now be presented at the Städel Museum from 6 October 2021 to January 30 2022 (originally planned for 9 December 2020 to 5 April 2021). Prior to this, the exhibition will be – as planned – on view at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa from 14 May to 6 September 2021.
