Bring enough time to enjoy all the lovely and very different plants in the Flora. If you enjoy reading and are not in a hurry, consider bringing a book and just sitting down on a bench for a while, reading your book outside.

Just loved this place. (We went twice!). Not only beautiful flower beds but fountains, lakes, glasshouses, humorous sculptures and a super cafe.. There were even red squirrels which we never get in my part of the UK.

The botanical garden of cologne is a beautiful place to visit, it is not that big in comparison with other botanical gardens around the world but if you like Nature, walking and places where you cab relax and be apart of the "civilization" for a while, this is a perfect place for you!.

The entrance is free and there were not many people there on a Sunday morning in September. There are trees from all over and lots of flowers of all sorts, more than I expected at this time of year. The landscaping is lovely and there were funny sculptures in a number of locations that blended into the garden. There are... More

Amazing display of gorgeous flowers and fauna. Walk through paths by beautiful and unique trees. Also in amongst are amusing statues of people posed enjoying a water, fall or swim. Worth a visit and admission is free!
