To enter the Chinese Garden you may have to go through Bethmann Park.
The Chinese Garden is a gift from Frankfurt’s partner city Guangzhou.
The gardens are arranged according to Feng Shui rules; harmony and style fit comfortably together and offer an oasis of peace right in the middle of Europe in Germany’s financial capital.
The water pavilion and zigzag bridge are a pleasant place for locals and tourists to escape the city, relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the finely carved pavilion and ornate pond.
The translation of the Chinese message on the Water Pavilion is “A friendly place to relax - In quiet, man finds the strength to think” and is an apt description of the Chinese Garden in Frankfurt.
Entry is Free, and park gates are locked after sunset.
Be sure to have a look in the ponds for slow moving fish.
The Chinese Garden in Frankfurt also reflects the growing trade relationship between China and Germany.
The Chinese Garden, though not exactly a child’s playground (there is a children’s playground in the adjoining Bethmann Park), is none the less a good place to take children because it is calming, something different, and who can’t resist feeding the ducks?
