In Frankfurt you will find a large number of important German institutions; among them is the University Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universitat, then several museums, most of them along the river Main, on the so-called Museum shore (Museumsufer), and the huge botanical garden called Palmengarten, which houses among other things an impressive collection of palm trees.
