We decided to pop in to spend an hour or so here before we headed home. The weather was beautiful, the sun was getting low, but there was lots of shade from the trees, so it wasn't in our eyes. It was quiet, with lots of greenhouses to see the different flowers (Cacti, flower house). Beautiful, would pay to go... More

If you have time and like botanic gardens, or a family with kids who like nature, this is a place you must see. This is a huge garden. You can hardly see all in one visit but will enjoy easily few hours. It is divided into 10 different gardens some of them in closed houses so I guess at winter... More

A neat old place to relax. A little boring but it must have been amazing in it's day. A couple of hours is fine.

Because... More

Palmengarten Frankfurt This park offered various activities with a minimal entrance fee. There were multiple fountains, arboretums, gardens, and exhibits to walk through. There is a water park on-site where young kids played. Circling parts of the park is a mini train on tracks, but I think there is a separate fee to ride it. The park grounds were fairly... More

Unless you are really into botany or know your way around plants, these are just pretty gardens. There isn't much information about any of the plants at the garden. Please don't get me wrong; this is a beautiful, relaxing place and it has inspired me to obtain a cactus garden in my own home but I'm not sure if it... More

This is one of the best attractions in Frankfurt. It is a large garden and if you like flowers and gardens, this is the place! It is very well maintained, and has many glasshouses, a few small lakes (on one of them you can rent a pedals-boat), a small train and a waterfall. It is amazing to find such a... More
