The Flora is a fine historical monument building set in the Botanical Gardens. Originally built in 1864, it has undergone a series of renovations and was reopened as a congress venue in June 2014.
The Flora offers the perfect setting for the DLR Conference on Climate Change 2018. The Conference will take place in the 800 square meter ceremonial hall, as well as in the Bistro and Orangerie, all with splendid views over the grounds.
