Founded in 1868 by a group of Frankfurt citizens, the Botanical Garden takes you on a horticultural journey from the African savanna and the exotic plants of the rain forests, to the blooming flower gardens in Europe. On 50 acres and in various green houses, you can see more than 6,000 different botanical species from all around the world.

The Museum of Modern Art is not only famous for its extensive art collection, which includs artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, and Gerhardt Richter, but also for its bold architecture. Designed by the Viennese architect Hans Hollering, the museum has a triangular shape and is called "the slice of cake" by locals.
