“Gardens are beautiful”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The gardens are a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The price is reasonable even for a family. I have visited the gardens many times over the years and have taken numerous visitors to the Pamengarten. They have all enjoyed their visit. The tropical rooms are a bit hot and steamy in the summer, but a great treat in the cold Frankfurt winters. The garden changes their main attraction on a regular basis and this place is worth visiting more than once.

Public restrooms are available... there is usually a line but they are kept clean.

The downside is the restaurant. It is often crowded and there is no priority for garden visitors (it is also open to the public who enter from the street) Do not expect a smile from your server, they are often quite rude and service is slow.

“great day out”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Kids love visiting here but you do not need kids to enjoy the surroundings. The restaurants are good too, if a little pricey.

“nice and quiet place”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Palmengarten is a botanical garden with exotic plants in greenhouses and a large outdoor area. Sometimes I come just to relax and enjoy the green and peaceful area.

There is an entrance fee, but especially for students it's very low.

“Lovely place in the city”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a lovely place to spend an afternoon and have a coffee. There are often shows or themed exhibits as well as the normal gardens and greenhouses. We went in the Spring and even though is was still marginal, the flowers were beautiful.
