Close to the left Rhine banks in the city's north, this 11.5 hectare (28 acre) garden includes The Flora, which occupies the southern part of the park and features a waterfall and a flower garden with a central fountain. More exotic plants, such as orchids, cocoa plants, and succulents can be found in the large greenhouse. The northern botanical garden is categorized according to plant type.

Botanical Gardens Flora reviews
Welcome to the green area in Köln. It has many sectors of plants but not too big. Peaceful and fresh air. It would be more interesting if tropical section is ready. more »
Really cute place to relax and stop to smell the flowers. My friend and I had a good visit and would definitely go again. more »
A very peaceful spot. Free entry. Note the greenhouse doesn't open till 10am, if you are early risers! A good size, can easily spend a couple of hours. In the process of building an orangery and larger greenhouse. Park in the zoo car park. Note there are no facilities in the park - no toilets or cafes.
The Garten is very beautiful and contains a lot of different things to look at. The prices for coffee and cake is reasonable. Free entry to the park makes the whole experience really smooth. Please obey the signs to not walk on the grass so that future generations also can visit and see all the wonderful things.
