    The flora is the most beautiful sight for me in the spring, when everything starts flowering beautifully. You can admire plants there that you get to see elsewhere have never or never again. Walks, plenty of benches are beautiful there to the stay are also available. What the gardener about bring is enormous. Be sure you have seen the cacti, you will feel like in distant countries a must for every Cologne or Köln visitors

    I love this place!! To spend moments of relax, take beautiful pictures and take a delicious breakfast in Dank Augusta! The species are all identified and cataloged. The trees are so big they hardly fit in the picture!! Are beautiful!! Is an excellent ride for those who went to the Zoo because it's super close!! Free entry. The garden is open until 9:00 pm in the summer.
