  • Very nice Sunday morning & afternoon spent here with family. Good sized, complete with mini railway and boating lake. Wildlife around the ponds quite plentiful including porpoises. Lots of photographic opportunity too. Definitely recommended for all.
  • Very interesting and absolutely beautiful! At some points it feels like you are in the middle of the forest. Be aware thought that it's very hot and humid so it's better to have a thin layer (like a T-shirt) underneath your winter clothes :)
  • Amazing place,best walk in the botanic garden in the center of this big industrial city! The entrance fee was 7€ per adult and 3€ per student! Happily spend two hours in it! Great variety of plants indoors and outdoors! Beautiful lake with ducks and swans. Lucky cause we had the opportunity to see the Christmas decoration of the garden (18/01)! Great value for money!
  • One of the most fascinating places in Frankfurt. It's pure beauty in every season, so do not miss it when you come to Frankfurt. I think if you want to see all the beauties of the garden you need 6-7 hours or more! If you are student abroad, you can buy a reduced ticket.
  • A great place, totally worth visiting while in frankfurt. The entrance fee is reasonable and the park is just magnificent. I visited it in winter, a rather wrong season but it still had things to see. It's a great place for a stroll!!
