Frankfurter Palmengarten

Without the Prussians Frankfurt might never have got its palm garden. Its foundation in 1868 owes itself to an emergency - and a courageous "citizens' initiative". At that time, Duke Adolph of Nassau, whose castle grounds in Wiesbaden-Biebrich encompassed some 200 exotic plants, fell into financial hardship. When the duchy was annexed like Prussia in 1866, the noble Botanicus was compelled to sell his famous "Biebrich Wintergardens" and commissioned Heinrich Siesmayer (1817-1900).
