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.

  • We enjoyed a few hours strolling these incredible gardens. One of the best in the world in my opinion. They are adding a large greenhouse that I'd love to go back and see some day.

  • A place worth visiting on your trip to Cologne. A paradise in the city with free parking right next door (although it is a bit small) or on nearby streets. you also have fairly clean toilets and at least two different exits for the botanical, the main entrance of course is impressive! In the building inside the botanical there is a cafeteria where you can enjoy your coffee.
  • Very beautiful garden. Highly recommend to visit if you are in Köln. The garden is free and well organized. You can have a relaxing walk inside. It’s not too hot in summer neither because there are trees along with the paths.
