  • A beautiful oasis of well-being in the middle of Frankfurt. Flowers and plants of all kinds living here. These are beschtiftet with explanations of the origin etc. There are lawns to the relax and sunbathe. On the Lake you can go pedal and rowing boats. In summer lovely concerts take place in the open-air theater. A visit to the annual rose and illumination, as well as the Christmas market is a must.

  • The Palm House and the botanical garden just are not necessarily worth two really a visit every season. Especially when made many renovations or similar. We'd unfortunately am checkout is not shared.

  • Despite the construction site, we had plenty to see. I found the price of 7,-€ in order. Here, we could save even 50% by the Frankfurt card.

  • Very nice place year round! Exotic plants and trees. Wilderness plants are cool to see. Worth the price (or even a yearly membership). The grounds are very large so you could spend quite some time here. They have quite a large amount of options for kids.
  • Lovely place to visit. Very well organized and setup. The Palmenhaus is very pretty, lots of different plants from all over the world. The park is beautiful, with lots of trees, green areas and even a small lake. We were lucky and enjoyed sunny weather, it was very pretty. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful city park. Great for picnics, with large parts for bikes, walking and running. Some blooming trees, but mostly grass and trees outside of the pedestrian path. There is a lovely botanical garden access open until 6 pm most days. The photos posted are view from that portion of the gardens.
  • If you're a lover of plants this place is for you. But don't worry the kids will have fun too paddling about the boats on the mini lake. If boats aren't the thing try the train tour to see the view. On the cold days sit in one of the hot houses boasting plants from all around the world. When you want something to eat they have a nice cafe.
  • The ambience inside is great and outside is even better. The place you can go for a beer in the afternoon or for brunch on Sunday. Last time I was there they took more than one hour to deliver five dishes top our table, which i find unacceptable. The restaurant was far from full and it was a week day. Couldn't understand why they took soooo long to bring salads and other simple plates.
