The historical ball room

Glamorous core piece of the Gesellschaftshaus Palmengarten

The Festsaal banqueting hall, dating back to 1870, with its gallery based on designs by Friedrich Kaysser, has been shining in new splendour since 2012. Gorgeous ornaments of the neo-Renaissance and the well preserved wall design by Friedrich Thiersch provide the room with its distinctive character. The atmosphere is marked by two classical chandeliers and a beautiful, historical parquet floor.

The 120 m² large daylight ceiling is unique: it provides a pleasant light and, if necessary, it can be completely shadowed and darkened. Especially for balls, the gallery around the Festsaal invites to strolling and offers a wonderful view of the entire room. From the gallery you also get to the adjoining Emporensaal, which can, for instance, be used as a lounge during gala events. The large windows towards the Palmenhaus contribute to the charm of this unique ensemble between the Gesellschaftshaus and the green oasis of Frankfurt. Through the Palmenhaus terrace adjoining the Festsaal, the Palmenhaus can be reached for a tour with its historical plant collection dating back to the end of the 19th century. 

The Gesellschaftshaus and the Palmenhaus are extraordinary venues for gala events, jubilee celebrations, balls, fashion shows, concerts or exhibitions.

Lindengarten

The beer garden in the Palmengarten

The Lindengarten is located next to the Gesellschaftshaus, directly at the access via Palmengartenstraße. Guests of the Palmengarten have here the possibility to buy little Frankfurt delights at attractive prices. It is also possible to consume one’s own food here. In a cosy atmosphere you can make a short break during your visit to the Palmengarten or simply enjoy the sun on beautiful days. For our particularly hungry guests we recommend our Caféhaus Siesmayer nearby for a savoury lunch menu.

You can buy foods and beverages every day in the Lindengarten (except on heavy rainy and tempest days) from 12 noon to 6 pm. During events at the nearby music pavilion, our Lindengarten is of course also open during the concerts or stage performances.
