  • Anyone looking for a place to stay, is right here. Especially in the spring, the Park is very nice to look at and it is also very like slightly longer.

  • The flora Köln (original built in 1864), in addition to the Cologne Zoo, and in the Centre of the actual flora located, reopened in June 2014 after three-year renovation. It is a traditional, historical building from the Wilhelminian era and a very attractive venue and was the ideal setting for the costume session of CDH, Cologne, Bonn, Aachen on Friday, February 17, 2017 with a star studded to artists and groups from the Carnival scene. This took place in the magnificent, 800 square meters large ballroom with the exposed cast iron pillars, chandeliers and the large arched Windows. The building with the crossed barrel is just beautiful to look at after the renovation and should be near any Cologne visit. Absolutely recommended. Sunday guided tours for individual participants held almost every Sunday at 11: 00.

  • Here, it's nice to stay up all day, for this variety of flowers and plants sometimes overwhelms one.
