Frankfurt - Westend

    Senckenberg Museum of Natural History (Naturmuseum Senckenberg) – One of the biggest natural history museums in Germany. Exhibits cover the evolution of the Earth, there's a great paleontology exhibit from Grube Messel, a pit with fossils dating back 50 million years. Grube Messel is considered the world's the richest site of the Eocene era, especially the early stages of the evolution of mammals – it's one of only two dozen World Heritage Sites in Germany.
Palmengarten (Gruneburg Park) 50 acres of botanical gardens where, in warm months, you can rent rowboats on the pond. Tour the reconstructed historic greenhouses (some built over 100 years ago). There's lots to see, from a magnificent rose garden to an oriental rock garden. At the Subantarctic House there are plants from Chile to New Zealand; in the Tropicarium it's tropical vegetation. At the palm house you may catch a flower show, and at the band stand on warm evenings you can listen to the band or join in the dancing.
