Gardens are beautiful and the "new" Florabuilding is just fantastic.It's definately worth a visit. And on top of it all it is close to the Zoo!

A wonderful quiet place (except on Sunday) midst of the city. Take your time and you feel like in heaven. A lot of plants from all over the world and many places to rest. It´s a place to make a short break from the world.

A nice place to go for a walk and greenhouses with a large variety of plants. Shame that the cafe/Restaurant doesn't seem to be running in Winter.

Want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, then head for the Botanical Gardens, These are not the largest gardens but they are magnificent. Plenty of nooks to explore and the green houses are beautifully maintained. Take some lunch and a good book and disappear for an afternoon, and the best part is it's FREE!

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!.
