  • I brought my students on field trips here, even though the "water park" area is small it entertained over 50 kids for a couple hours. I personally enjoyed the cactus house a lot, coming from Texas. Lots to see for nature lovers, and plenty of places to grab a lawn chair, lay out and relax
  • Frankfurt's beautiful botanical garden is an ideal getaway for a day. Although, one might soon realize that it can be less. It also depends which part of the year you visit. There are sections for various flowers. There are also musicals conducted and I was lucky to catch up a Trumpet Concert. Totally recommend this place when in Frankfurt.
  • Hands down the biggest and most beautiful botanical garden you can find in Germany. The green house is wonderful, filled from ground to ceiling with exotic plants from all around the world. Not so many people visiting even in the weekend. I consider this is the excellent spot for reading and sunbathing. I'll definitely return in the future.
  • Terrific botanical garden and more, like nothing I've seen elsewhere. The climate zones are wonderfully curated, great outdoor gardens and lake.
  • Great for kids too. The park is huge. All the way in the back is a great playground with a water play area.
