At the Palmengarten entrance Zeppelinallee, close to the rock gardens and heather, this distinguished historic mansion is the former “garden cottage” of the family Leonhardi. Built in 1806 by the architect Nicolas Alexandre Salins de Monfort it formerly stood along the Bockenheimer Anlage. Between 1825 and 1833 it served as a café.

Today you can enjoy coffee, cake, sausages, and lemonade inside the Villa Leonhardi or on its open-air terrace with a view across the Rock and Heath Gardens.

From the desert to the rainforest – in the Palmengarten, it only takes a few steps to traverse all of the earth’s vegetation zones. Thus, on an expedition through the display houses, topical gardens, and flower beds, adventurers both young and old can experience more than 13,000 species of plants up close and personal – or from a safe distance: aboard our pedal and row boats or in the Palmengarten Express, you can watch the fascinating world of plants slowly glide by while already looking forward to a frolic in one of the playgrounds. Those who prefer to discover the secrets of our botanical treasures should book a guided tour from the Green School.


Swinging, digging, climbing, and splashing: the large playground is a meeting place for families with small children. The Water Fun Park is particularly popular. 12,000 liters of drinking water flow through it every day, which are subsequently collected in a cistern and used to water the playground meadow.


An additional playground is located above the Big Pond, where kids can frolic and play in the shade of large trees. Directly adjacent, albeit outside the garden, the Papageno Theater puts on plays and operas for children and adults.


The lake to the west of the Palm House is part of the historic section of the park. The shallow pond is home to several kinds of fish and waterfowl. Formerly, gondolas were awaiting guests to be gently rowed around the lake. Today boats can be rented during the summer months for leisurely paddling around.


  • adults: 4.50 € / 30 min., each additional person 1.50 €
  • children: 3.50 € / 30 min., each additional child 1.50 €

Boat rental open during the summer season depending on weather conditions and demand.
