May I take a bag, jacket, food, or beverages into the Städel Museum?

For security reasons, bags (larger than DIN A4) and jackets must be checked in the cloakroom. In order to avoid unintended contact with the works of art, no articles of clothing may be carried over your arm in the exhibition rooms.

The consumption of food and beverages is not permitted in the exhibition rooms. Beverages may not be taken into the exhibition halls.  All such items can be checked in the cloakroom.

Is there a free cloakroom at the Städel Museum?

The use of the cloakroom at the Städel Museum is free of charge. The cloakroom is located to the back right of the main foyer area. Jackets, bags (larger than DIN A4), knapsacks, umbrellas, and large articles that may not be taken into the exhibition must be checked in. Due to space restrictions, it is not possible to check suitcases or trolleys. A €1 coin is needed to use a locker.

We accept no liability for items checked in at the cloakroom or left in lockers.

Is there seating available in the Städel Museum?

Seating is available throughout the museum and in the special exhibition. Folding stools are only available for use in the permanent exhibition and are unfortunately not permitted in the special exhibition. Wheelchairs, walking frames, and canes can be hired from the cloakroom.

Is there a café or restaurant in the Städel Museum?

Our self-service café is located adjacent to the museum shop. In addition to coffee and tea specialties, we offer a seasonal selection of sandwiches, salads, cakes, and cookies.

Does the Städel have a museum shop?
