Staedel Museum of Fine Art,

Join me in a great art museum visit, Stadelsches Museum, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany

10 Must-see paintings.

NEW Virtual Visit. Because of the Corona shutdown, I now offer a digital museum visit, using Zoom combined with my image bank. Call me for a live virtual Zoom class visit appointment! Enjoy a private Powerpoint presentation with your own ‘Professore’.

At the moment, most museums in the world are either closed or very limited in entry. That is a rough, troublesome time for us art-lovers. But this is also the perfect moment to learn more about a a number of western painters, art schools, era’s etc. I can guide you digitally through many, many art museums on Zoom. With the help of my 10.000+ image bank of my own photographs. A private Webinar!

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. Please book a time slot ticket for yourself and for the guide. New: Private Audio system available.

You can hire me and I will fly in to be your own outstanding private “Professore”. At your cost, I will fly in especially for you and I will guide you after spending a hotel night. And then a very memorable museum visit or two.


Vermeer, one of the 36 in existence.

The Städel, officially the Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie, is an art museum in Frankfurt, on the bank of the river Main. 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. It was started by private, civic action.

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.

These days there is a a major digital outreach as well.
