"Grüneburg Park" Zoos and Parks Tip by yooperprof
Zoos and Parks, Frankfurt am Main: 15 reviews and 18 photos
Grüneburg is a lovely multi-use park just on the northern edge of the Westend neighborhood. It's a great place to continue your longish walk around the outskirts of Frankfurt - a walk which might also encompass the Palmengarten and the Botanischer Garten as well. Grüneburg is not really a garden - but it's full of trees and grassy and flowery, so it's another extension of Frankfurt's "Greenbelt."
The park is on the grounds of what was the estate of the local Rothschild family. The "Neue Palais," constructed in 1845 for Amschel Rothschild, stood in the center of the park. You can't escape history in Germany: the Palace was destroyed in a 1944 bombing raid.
