19th Arrondissement, Paris

3.8
Take a break from the urban bustle at 19th Arrondissement, a mostly residential, family-friendly district in the northern part of the city. Although well off the tourist trail, this district is full of greenery and provides a welcome escape from the crowds and excitement of central Paris. Spend time at the two parks, Parc de La Villette and Parc des Buttes Chaumont, or walk the Canal Saint-Denis and Canal de l'Ourcq that span the district.

  • At least that is my opinion. The 19th has the canals, Buttes Chaumont, some lovely hillside neighborhoods, and don't forget the Communist Party's HQ! Paris' historic working class area is in the midst...  more »
  • The 19th district dates from the era where Paris expands so adjacent Commons, under Napoleon III in 1860. So the towns of Belleville and La Villette are integrated as well as a part of Aubervilliers and Pantin. Initially the limit of Paris was the farmers General wall which dates from 1785, and which corresponds to the boulevards of la Villette and the chapel limits of the current borough in the South West. To the South, the borough is limited by Belleville Street and the 20 th arrondissement. To the West it is limited by the street of Aubervilliers and the 18 District. It is structured in its Center by the Villette basin extended by to the North is the Ourcq Canal. It is also crossed by important routes from place Stalingrad with the Avenue of Flanders until the door of la Villette and the Avenue Jean Jaurès to dummy door. Crimea Street passes through the North West to the South East along the magnificent park of Buttes Chaumont until the place of the holiday in the South one of the points high of Paris, on the Hill of Belleville. This district is mainly residential, 187.000 inhabitants, with an area of activities and leisure in the North, "The Park" along the boulevards of the marshals, Mac Donald and Sérurier. There, the city of science and industry, the halls of la Villette and the city of music, and the new building of the Philharmonie de Paris. The Chaumant mounds Park created under Napoleon III, is the largest urban park in Paris, off the two outlying Woods of Boulogne and Vincennes. It is inescapable by the beauty of its landscapes, the diversity of species and the setting very changing over the Boardwalk, with large lawns, ponds, waterfalls and wooded hills. I like to walk in this park and this season and have a drink or eat one in the restaurants in the Park. It is available on the South by the metro stations "Buttes Chaumont" and "Botzaris" line no. 7B to the East near the pre Saint Gervais, is also the Park Red Butte, between the boulevards Sérurier and Algeria. Similarly, there is a residential area and charming, said of America, made small houses in streets close some paved and flowered around the streets of Mouzaia, General Brunet and equality, located east of the metro "Botzaris". Place little known to Parisians, it deserves a visit! Around the basin of la Villette and the Canal to Ourq, it is very nice to walk around and enjoy activities that are proposed. A pool divided into three parts, for swimming is offered by 2017 with opportunities for cruises and boat rental. So far the bathing well that banned, was widely practiced in the beautiful season. This district is very lively in the beautiful season and I enjoy coming there to distract me. In the Park of the Villette, the Cité des Sciences and built industry in 1986 is intended to the popularization of the scientific and technical knowledge, especially for children. There is a library and "cities" dedicated "for: children, jobs and health." A trade show "Explora" present periodic demonstrations on topics such as space, Nature, automotive, energy, etc. the 'Vill 'Up', pole of cultural leisure and shops, will reopen in 2017. The Geode, offers movies in 3D projection on a hemispherical screen. For music lovers and music lovers, the city of music and Philharmonic auditorium, offer many activities, Museum, school and workshops, and concerts with prestigious chefs. The Park is accessible by metro stations "Gate of la Villette" line no. 7 North and "Door de Pantin" line no. 5 to the South near the city of music. The Mayor of the borough, quality building, is located near the Buttes Chaumont to the North, Manin Street and place Armand Carel. It is accessible by subway line no. 5 "Laumière" station and the avenue of the same name.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
