This wonderfully nice Chinese Garden in Frankfurt is situated near the City Center (next to the end of the Berger Strasse) but offers however a perfect quiet place for calming down, sit, relax, read a book or simply take beautiful fotos, which look as if you are somwhere in East Asia. A walk through this park surely lifts up your... More

It's small, but very charming (and laid out in a smart way, thus it doesn't feel quite that small). A true gem of landscaping: A Chinese garden with everything that needs to be there - lavish plant life with stone paths leading through them, bridges, pavilions, rock formations, and all that. Only the roar of cars in the nearby road... More

Not in good shape at all which is a real pity as the garden has all potential to be beautiful. Teenagers hangout and smoke pot....

Little garden hidden in the Bettmahns Park offers a nice spot for relaxation. A little pond hosts a number of Chinese red fish, a little turtle and some geese. Besides there is a small waterfall and few benches.

I went there with my Chinese friend. She loved it even more than me. She said, it is very common for China. And I also like, that this park is quite big. You can play chess there too.

Easy and free access to take a walking meditative experience through this little gem in the city - open year round and close to the Merianplatz subway stop.

Not easy to find but when you get there, you know it served to look for it for half an hour ! Really nice and peaceful place in city center, perfect for a relax moment listening birds singing. Some places need to be more clean but it's really nice to have a walk there, even for family with children who... More
