I am thinking of flying for the day to Frankfurt - some time in late January. Was wondering whether anyone might confirm the fact that Frankfurt has some of Germany's finest art galleries and museums, of any German city?
Of course, I could easily find the information on lonelyplanet.com, but I was wondering whether anyone might have any personal recommendations. I'm mainly into 17-19th Century art, especially landscape and Dutch/Flemish.
With numerous low-cost airlines now flying between the UK and Germany, now is a good time to visit a number of cities - prices are still very cheap for late January.

while i cant see what makes you such a dumb ass, i can strongly recommend to go to munich and see the fabulous "pinakotheken". you will particularly like the "alte pinakothek" which has a huge selection of what you are looking for.
but also do not miss the "pinakothek der moderne" which opened this autumn and has a HUGE selection of modern art.

Thanks much R. Will definitely look that place up.
The dumb ass reference was for posting in the incorrect forum.
Regarding "modern art", I presume you are talking about "modernist" i.e. 1960s+ art. Unfortunately, I cannot yet fully understand this art, and therefore do not like it. However, I do find people's reactions to a blank piece of canvass rather interesting.

Hehe, so many forums here ...
Now back to the topic ( ) - why not Berlin? We have a "Museums Island" here in middle of the city with plenty of museums and galleries to die from hunger during visit: Old Museum, New Museum, Nationalgalerie, Pergamon Museum. There are (at least) two more situated at "Unter den Linden", which is a stone's throw from Museums Island.
And then there is Brücke Museum ...
Note the opening hours/days! Most museums are closed on mondays.

To spread another alternative and to confuse you even more
Frankfurt is also very well known for his museums and gallerys. We have the "Staedele" a high-reputation gallery/museum of every kind of art, we have the Moma (museum of modern art) wich architecture itself can be called art .. and many more gallerys and art-museums.
Frankurt lies on the river named "Main", and there even is a "museum-shore" with one museum after the other (art, film/movies, postal-museum, ...)
So, all in all HIGHLY recommended!
