Nice lay-out, interesting plants and trees. Unfortunately the greenhouses with the tropical forest plants were closed for renovation (May 2018).

There are a number of things to see in the garden. Unfortunately a few exhibition halls and half of the Tropicarium are closed for maintenance. But the things we could see were great. Great way to spend a few hours in Frankfurt.

A beautiful, peaceful haven which is easy to get to. When I went two special exhibitions were taking place: one of spring flowers (I was there in winter) and one of camellias. Permanent exhibitions include tropical plant greenhouses from different geographical regions. An excellent place...More

Even in winter, this was an interesting place to visit. We arrived about an hour before closing, but it gave us quite a bit of time to wander through the "greenhouses". We started in the Palm building, which was really well done. Next to some...More

Pamengarten is an all year round attraction as it has hot houses to tour. The grounds will be as per seasonal, so not as nice as spring or high summer.
