Wonderful visit! We were at the end of bloom season so the dahlia garden was lovely, but rose garden almost done. We toured all of the indoor gardens-tropical to desert. And as a surprise bonus there is a butterfly house. There is a lot to see here! Trails throughout a variety of garden styles and playgrounds for kids.

This is a beautiful garden wether you're interested in plants or just want to wander around and relax. There' s plenty to do and see for all ages. The children will enjoy the playgrounds while the adults inhale the sweet fragrance of nature.

This is a must-see in Frankfurt. Beautiful biospheres of plants native to many countries throughout the world, from tropical to desert. There was an amazing butterfly exhibit that was worth the trip alone.

We were really impressed with the great selection of plants present. It is obvious a meticolous job has been done to gather and caretake all these botanical delights. Some parts of the park like the Rubus section is very well organized with every species being separated from the rest. Other sections like the East Asian section where everything grows wildy together. Beautifully executed and without a clear overall plan.
We were shocked to find the poisionous plants being gathered together in a "poison sector" where highly dangerous plants were free to touch by children and adults alike, without much warning signs present or barriers to prevent touching or tasting. Some of them deadly poisionus and others delirical and hallucination-inducing. Everything also next to several bees nests where thousands of bees were roaming around the area. This feels a bit unsafe and careless, but exciting nonetheless.
There is also a large meat-eating section where the plants, however with some marking errors (some confusion between Dionaea vs. Nepenthes)

We must again stress the amazing selection - this surpasses most botanical gardens we have ever seen before. A day or two can easily be spent here.

Well worth the visit, even on a slightly drizzly day (perhaps even more then, as it was really quiet when we were there). An amazing ensemble of greenhouses, beautifully laid out, and wonderful gardens. A real oasis in Frankfurt and well worth every minute we spent there.

Such a lovely place to relax with your family and take a break from the busy city. I enjoyed going through all these beautiful plants, taking photos, and just spending time with the kids. I will definitely come here again.

Very beautiful garden for 7€/adult. You should bring some time and maybe even a nice book to enjoy this place an entire day long. Very close is also the botanic garden free of charge

A great place to recover from the stress of the big city. There is a wide range of activities for all ages, although it should be emphasized that this is primarily a botanical garden. Especially impressive are the greenhouses with tropical plants. The entrance fee is reasonable.

I've made lots of beautiful photos there.
Unfortunately the indoor part was closed because of Corpna.
