This extensive complex is home to more than 10,000 species of plants. It invites visitors to take walks that combine relaxation with opportunities to learn something about the world of plants and flowers. As you walk between the exotic plants in the tropical greenhouses and the Palm House, you’ll feel you’re in the midst of a rain forest.
The Flora in Cologne — the historic building at the heart of this symmetrically designed garden complex — was reopened in 2014 after a three-year renovation period. The events staged in this elegant setting range from conferences, concerts and social gatherings to weddings and gala celebrations.
