  • The Frankfurt Palmengarten directly located next to the "Bockenheimer Warte", railway junction is located near the city centre and is therefore easy to reach. Currently undergoing improvement works in a part of the system, thus some exhibition rooms can not besicht. Invite the different warm plants/Palmenhaen to linger in the winter. Nebel-, mountains and tropical forests offer a huge variety of vegetation with some very rare plants - one for their view otherwise would have to travel halfway around the world. Special insight offer also the regular special exhibitions.

  • Very nice Sunday morning & afternoon spent here with family. Good sized, complete with mini railway and boating lake. Wildlife around the ponds quite plentiful including porpoises. Lots of photographic opportunity too. Definitely recommended for all.
  • Very interesting and absolutely beautiful! At some points it feels like you are in the middle of the forest. Be aware thought that it's very hot and humid so it's better to have a thin layer (like a T-shirt) underneath your winter clothes :)
