Städel is the main museum in Frankfurt, presenting a considerably large collection. One floor is dedicated to the Old Masters, but I particularly appreciate the floor dedicated to modern art, with a special attention to German Modernism. There is also a great collection of contemporary art downstairs. The temporary exhibitions are usually very informative and also worth it. I have visited the Städel more than 5 times and there is always something new to see and to learn.
Unfortunately I have to say that I had a not very good experience with this museum. And being more precise with the workers of it. Yes the exhibitions were excellent. Yet one of the staff members that I have met in the subway in the Frankfurt city today, Miss Nicole (the last name I cannot recall because I have not read the museum card very attentively, as she showed it to me) has been behaving very strangely. As my mask slid off and I did not notice it, she has told me to put it on properly but in a quite aggressive manner. I did that, but when I asked if she is a subway worker or a police officer her strange behaviour continued to escalate until she mentioned that I, as a non German, should not be arguing with her. Yes I am a non German and moreover I am a guest in Frankfurt city that's why I have got neither time nor any desire to solve this problem with the museum directly. That's why I am writing this review. Yet it was very frustrating to hear such things. I don't know what was the reason for such reaction on a simple question, but I would really appreciate if the mental health of the museum workers, would be taken care of. Sadly I have to tell that this situation has left a track on me and I would very unlikely visit Frankfurt or Stadel museum once more. Best Regards
