“Surprising place in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

When we arrived and saw the price we were not sure that it would worth it but then we saw how huge the park is and how much different plants you can see and we changed our mind, this park deserve to be visited.

Check out the event calendar and you might get to enjoy a classic or jazz concert for free (besides the regular park entry).

“A pleasant oasis in a pleasant city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

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.

“Calm and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Palmgarten in Frankfurt is a haven of peace and quiet. The plants and flowers are beautiful, no matter what season you visit.
