Adolph von Holzhausen Park

Holzhausen Park is an oasis of green located in Frankfurt's North End district. The park's small castle is a popular attraction for both young and old. The park itself had belonged to the Holzhausen Family since 1500; it was their most significant garden property until 1771, when it became their official place of residence. Holzhausen Castle was built in 1728. Its impressive yet understated architectural design shows many qualities of the French classicistic-baroque style.

Bethmannpark

Shielded from big-city traffic by thick walls, this peaceful oasis was at one time the serene and idyllic garden of Frankfurt´s renowned Bethmann family. Featuring a floral splendour of special magnificence, Bethmann Park could well double as the lush parklands of a regal spa resort. The Chinese Garden, landscaped according to the principles of feng-shui, is the park´s biggest attraction. Its pond, bridges and the dragon-guarded portal serve as popular photo motifs.

Botanical Garden (Palmengarten)

The Palmengarten was founded in 1868 by a group of dedicated Frankfurt citizens. Today, these widely acclaimed botanical gardens are under the care and maintenance of the City of Frankfurt. This superb botanical showcase was originally established thanks to the purchase of the Duke of Nassau's excellent tropical-plant collection. A special greenhouse was erected to house these plants, enabling visitors to meander through a jungle-like tropical environment.

City walls

The old city walls may no longer be standing, but most people would say that the five-kilometre-long green belt forming a semi-circle around the old town centre between the upper and lower Main embankments is a more than adequate replacement. These narrow parklands run along the former course of the mediaeval city walls, which were abraded and landscaped in the early 19th century. The city's one-time line of defence was thus transformed into a beautiful inner-city landscape.
