Städel Museum

The Städel Museum, founded in 1816 with a bequest from local merchant and art collector Johann Friedrich Städel, has a world-renowned collection of paintings spanning the 14th to the 20th century.

When Johann Friedrich Städel died in 1816, he bequeathed his house, his art collection of 474 paintings and his fortune (about 500.000 euro) to a foundation. In return he requested the collection to be expanded and open to the public.

The collection was first displayed in his house at the Roßmarkt in the inner city. In 1833 the foundation moved to a larger building and in 1878 it settled into the current purpose-built structure at the Main riverbank. The monumental building was designed by Oskar Sommer in a neo-Renaissance style.

In 1937 the Nazis confiscated a large part of the collection, including 77 paintings that were deemed ‘degenerated’ by the regime.
Goethe by H.W. Tischbein
In March 1944, during the war, the museum building was heavily damaged by allied bombardments. After extensive reconstruction, it reopened in 1966.
