Along the River Main through Frankfurt between the Lower Main Quay and the Friedensbrücke is a small landscaped area called Nizza Gardens. Created around 1860-70, it has citrus trees, palms, cedars and many perennial beds.

This beautiful little area right along the river is well worth an hour or so visit. It is surprising to find the subtropical plant material in Germany but the moderating effect of the river and local climate allow them to grow and survive.
