There are numerous museums in Frankfurt. Many of those museums are located by the River Main not far from the historic old town. It is somewhat like museums located by the River Seine in Paris. The Städel Museum is one of the best museums in Frankfurt if not in the entire country of Germany. The Städel Museum has impressive array of collections of paintings and sculptures. Paintings displayed in the museum are artworks from the 14th century to the most recent days. Although I could notice a few paintings, there is no really well known masterpieces that I could find. That does not ruin my visit to the Städel, as I thoroughly enjoyed viewing brilliant works of art especially paintings of one of my all time favorite artists, Johannes Vermeer.
