Awarded Bookstore
For the reason of the attractive offer, the Städel bookstore was awarded as "Bookstore of the year 2013/2014” in the category "Special-purpose Bookstore”. The honoring was given by BuchMarkt, an important business magazine for book trade in Germany. "There artbooks are staged with taste and love for the detail. The bookstore in the Städel museum is both a great rounding off after the visit of the museum and an invitation to come in the first place”, argued the jury.
