Early March so not much blooming. Daffodils and crocus. Would like to visit midsummer. It's small so easily covered.

The Flora (Botanical Gardens ) with its tree lined tracks, water fountain, and a wide floral range gives the tourists a relaxing break amidst the natural green belt. A stroll there adds to the completeness of the visit to Cologne.

It was a nice place, but due to renovations it was not really great. I didn't see anything breathtaking as some reviewers are claiming. It was as I've said nice! I would go!

Though part of it was closed for renovation, the set up, trees and plants are breath taking. It takes you away from the loud sounds of the city into a breath of fresh air
