Frankfurt station’s quarters
Everything you need to know about Germany’s most exuberant quarters. For a long time, the area surrounding Frankfurt main station was considered sinful.
Ooooommmmm! Hidden smack in the middle of Frankfurt’s center, you can find the gorgeous Chinese garden at the Bethmannspark: a little oasis of calm in the midst of the inner city jungle. Here you can find peace and calm the soul, breathe deep. The citizens of Frankfurt love this magical place and meet here during their lunch break for tai chi, yoga, or meditation.
Once you enter the Garden of Heavenly Peace, you can feel a special kind of energy and calm, that you begin to whisper your words right away.
For couples and families this is a wonderful place for a picnic and kids just love to go exploring for hours. But it is also ideal for a short break between two appointments, just to get a little breather and be ready for the next business meeting.
Oh, and let us point out that the park offers various great spots for romantic selfies or incredible nature shots. Instagrammers and hobby photographers look out! Water, vegetation, and architecture blend together to form the perfect symbiosis. A variety of bridges and pavilions are strategically placed as ideal places to take a shot, breathe in, or have a kitschy and romantic first date.
