A contract was signed in September 2011 transferring the Botanical Garden of the Goethe University to the City of Frankfurt. Together, Palmengarten and Botanical Garden will be in possession of one of the most extensive plant collections in the World.
The basic operations of these two adjoining metropolitan oases is secured through community/state funding. However, to allow for major culturally relevant projects and events as well as educational programs in the future we will depend on additional public support. Thus, the foundation “Stiftung Palmengarten und Botanischer Garten Frankfurt am Main” was established with a generous endowment by the late Eleonore Beiser, a long-time friend and supporter of the Palmengarten. We are convinced that many visitors and friends of both gardens are aware of the legacy and great responsibility we all have in trying to maintain and promote this great cultural and scientific heritage.
