Join me for a visit to the Staedel Museum of Fine Art, Frankfurt am Main.    I will be your private professore, travelling in from Amsterdam, Holland specially for you. Tour by Drs Kees Kaldenbach, a professional Art History scholar with excellent teaching skills. Specialist in Fine art and Design, Architecture and History. VIP entry. Entry best at from 9 or 10AM.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours. The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‚Professore‘ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.

The Städel, officially the Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie, is an art museum in Frankfurt am Main, on the bank of the river. Clearly one of the most important collections in Germany, the Städel owns 2,700 paintings (of which 600 are on display) and a collection of 100,000 drawings and prints as well as 600 sculptures.

The institute was founded 1815 by the local banker and merchant Johann Friedrich Städel. In 1878, a new museum building was designed in the German Gründerzeit style.
