  • 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.

  • A very nice place to get some rest between beautiful plants, trees and flowers. Front entrance gives a feeling of relaxation you can expect after paying €7,- entree for adults The park is build with areas of origin and has enough space to walk for at least 3 hours. This is a must visit when travelling to Frankfurt. We couldn't find any negative point to describe only positive vibes.
  • The best place in Frankfurt Germany! Outstanding views, smells, and colors. Great deal with the Frankfurt card... Half off the 2018 price of 7 Euros a Smoking deal but 1/2 off much better! They even have a carnivorous plant section. With insight beverage sales , great place, first place to see in Frankfurt.
  • Beautiful city garden for a weekend day visit (7€ adult admission). Live music near the entrance and cold beverages available for purchase. Great for a Sunday afternoon when most businesses are closed! Recommend bringing a blanket to relax in the grass and bringing or purchasing a bite from one of several stands or shops inside.
  • This is a nice place to unwind and escape the hectic busyness of everyday life. The collections of flowers are just absolutely gorgeous and the greenhouses have been set up in a really nice way. In the Palm-Greenhouse for example, you get a small quiz there as you explore the various plants in the palm and fern family. The open lawns are a delight to be in. Feel free to bring your own blankets to relax and have a picnic on those lush green grounds. For the romantic, there are boats that you can ride. For the children there's even a small musical theater. For the hungry, a cafe awaits you. An all-round family destination.
  • Palmen Garten is one of the great place to be in Frankfurt. It is located near the City Center and Central Train Station and can be easily reachable with Underground-Trains. Entrance Fee is reasonable and really worth it to spent a day in this beautiful Botanical Garden. This garden is sure to be a great place for Photographers, Travellers and students. It’s a very lovely place to be. There are a lot of places where children can play and a lot of tropical gardens. It’s very beautiful especially the wide ranges of flowers. Small lake is also situated inside it where boating can be done during Summer time, but it costs extra.
