These are Frankfurt’s Botanical gardens, not far from the Alte Oper. As might be expected, we found the gardens clean and well organised. The admission fee is €7 per adult [16.8.2013). There are several modern greenhouses containing a variety of different plants and habitats from around the world and a series of gardens laid out with flower beds, fountains, etc. The oldest buildings house those plants (e.g. palms) that need the warmest and most moist conditions. The gardens are very tranquil and are located in an attractive part of the city. Our only problem was wasps, as Frankfurt has plenty of them in August. Allow yourself 2/3 hours for a visit. Overall we enjoyed the gardens, we felt the fee was reasonable value and the location was worth a visit.
