Parks & Gardens

Discover the green side of Cologne

It goes without saying that a multifaceted major city like Cologne also offers many opportunities for outdoor relaxation. Fortunately, Cologne has extensive parks where you can unwind after a successful shopping trip or an eventful tour of the city. The more central parts of Cologne offer parks such as the Volksgarten, Aachener Weiher, Grüngürtel, Rheinpark and many more. The city’s western district of Lindenthal includes the extensive Stadtwald, which is the perfect place for long strolls.
