The Palmengarten is a wonderful place to spend hours near the center of Frankfurt. You can walk through the park surrounded by greenhouses showing plants of the different climatic regions of our earth.

Beautiful botanical garden, it is interesting that they also have a train (for an easier exploration) and a small lake where you can ride the hidrobicycle or boat. Lovely place, it's worth all the pennies.

It's not big but very beautiful and well maintained and organized. There is a very elegant cafe there where you can sit in a wonderful atmosphere and have breakfast or coffee with... More

One of the best botanic gardens we have visited. Very well done and maintained, also very walkable. Enjoyed all the individual exhibits. Flower gardens were particularly lovely.
