Wandering walk ways, varied plants, places to sit and just enjoy the nature in the city. The Flora is free and open late so if you just have the time go and have a calm moment there.

Next to the zoo this quite old fashioned garden is beautifully maintained with flower beds, glass houses, fountains and lakes. There was an interesting area of model vegetable gardens and also a section on commercial crops such as wheat, barley rye and others. Most of the garden was well labelled. It says 'no picnics' but we ate our sandwiches on a bench and no one worried us, when I looked in the bin it was full of picnic things so we can't have been alone doing this. There is no where close to buy food or drink but about 10 minutes walk away was an area with a selection of food shops and cafés. There is a very smart looking restaurant in the park which we did not discover until the end of our visit, it's inside the orangery the main building in the park.

The botanical gardens of Cologne have a lot to offer. Greenhouses with succulents and tropical vegetation, delightful walkways through flower patches and lovely little parks here and there provide a beautiful setting for a day out well spent.

Lovely gardens, well maintained and an oasis in the middle of a large and busy city. The palace is resplendent and the walk through gardens are magnificent - all free of charge.

We were there in May which is a little early for a lot of color to be present but there was still quite a lot to see and we enjoyed a peaceful break from the city!
