  • The Palm Garden is a place for people who switch off from the everyday and want to rest, some male Fantasivolle interesting Forführungen instead and it found that comes naturally in the heyday of the beauty of nature Ergänzlich then Stay at the Palm Garden is still Angenähmer and relaxing makes. A visit to the Palm tree garden is very advisable because "Man" can properly enjoy the time, benevolent recovery can be, and I think that they always come back to this beautiful place.

  • Beautiful place. Nice plants and flowers, lovely birds. We usually go there with our children. There is huge playground for all age groups. Ours are 2 years old and they love it. There are lot of options for toddlers, for example swing, climbing frame, slide or sand box. And there is a train also inside the Palmengarten that takes you from one end to the other. We also like the lake which is located in the opposite end than the playground. All in all very pleasant place, I can only recommend it.
  • Really nice place in summer. You can chill here and enjoy the nature also with family and kids. Inside are some coffee shops and small load for ice cream or just sweets. It exists playgrounds and nice seas. It is a optimal place in summer when the weather is good and when you are a tourist and like nature or just need some relax time in nature. There are a lot of trains and bus stations in the near and when you drive by car you can park in a car park. For a town like Frankfurt it is an optimal place near university, city and tourist hotspots.
  • Maybe nice, maybe not. From the outside it looks gorgeous but... the ticket is very expensive for a park. Any adult has to pay 7 euro so, this is 14 for one couple. Sorry Frankfurt. This is too much for the average Mediterranean people.
  • Beautiful place. Better on a sunny day but still lovely on a rainy day. Lots of variety. Very easy to get to.
  • A good place to relax and have a good time... But keep in mind, it's also famous for parents and their children; so if you want to relax, timing is key. There you can have a look at various plants, even some animals ( "wild life" 😁 ).
