Jardin des Tuileries, Paris

4.5
#3 of 75 in Parks in Paris
Separating the Louvre from Place de la Concorde, Jardin des Tuileries are semi-formal French gardens that have survived centuries. Catherine de Medici created them in 1564, and they were revamped 100 years later. The gardens serve as a cultural walking space, where Maillol statues complement those by Rodin and Giacometti. To relax, go towards one of the benches at either of the two ponds, where people drive model boats on the water. For a quick snack, stop at one of the cafes, ice cream shops, or crépe stalls surrounding the space. The low cut of the impeccably manicured hedges around the statues allow you to photograph each one in full sunlight.

    Located between the end of the Champs Elysee (Place de La Concorde) and the Musée Du Louvre, is one of the most famous gardens of Paris. There's always people hiking, taking pictures or sitting, the dozens of chairs and lounge chairs scattered around the garden.

    A walk in the garden of the Tuileries is a must to discover the side "Nature" of the capital. This large space, with many plantations, shadows, pools, groves, of works of art, etc is a way for a change! Gardeners that have outdone themselves this year and we have a multitude of stands of flowers of all colors and in a very successful legal systems. The lawns are at rest so they are deep green and their value, statues, and plantations. Chairs are always available around the pools and in the aisles, and you can always find a peaceful, shady place. In this day of sunshine, there are still many tourists in this garden and I see that Paris is still as attractive. Don't delay, come here because soon winter will arrive, and the garden will rest. Between the pyramid of the Louvre and the place de Concorde, the Tuileries garden ensures a perfect bucolic transition!

    Many visited in the summer, fall and autumn leaves, but I was walking in the Park organized by staff. Is recommended to take a good rest.

    Given all the beauty and touristy options in Paris, especially around this District, this park remains my favorite for the relaxing part of busy days. We always bring a book or magazines for a much-needed break from all the walking and gawking, take a lounge chair under the trees, soak in the incredible views and enjoy a good read and a nap. The two parameter restrooms provide a nice, long walk to break up the time ... which seems to stop when we get settled in.

    Very nice garden in the most touristic place of Paris. Normally full with people. A great place to go in a nice day. Bring your book or child. And enjoy the nice garden and the views of few of the world's best museums around.

    Great in summer. Lots of places to sit and enjoy in peace. They also had a fair going on at one corner of the garden when we visited there the last time. There were small rides, shops selling ice cream etc. Really fun and relaxing for the whole family.

    These are huge gardens with some really neat views. There are squared off trees that offer a huge shaded area as well as large grassy areas. This is a nice place to go for a walk or just hang out for a while, perfect for after a visit to the Louvre.

    Great place to spend some time just relaxing and people watching. The view is really nice. I enjoyed a lot sitting on a chair, of the lots of public ones there, spending some time enjoying Paris's iconic place.

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.
