Jardin des Tuileries, Paris

Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Beautiful garden area to walk through on your way from the Louvre through to Place De La Concorde and then onwards to the Champs Elysees. There is some construction going on in parts at the moment tho...  read more »
  • Just a really lovely and restful walk through the gardens and then if you have the energy keep going down the Champs Élysées to the Arch d Triomph 
  • I spent couple of hours here waiting for my friends. Here you can observe the life of French people, how they came at lunch and sit on the chairs or on the grass, eat,read a book and relax for couple of minutes before returning to their work place. The fountains and the chairs around then are very nice. It sit couple of minutes on them and I almost went to sleep. I enjoyed the time spent here. When you get out from Louvre Museum go to this garden (over the street) and relax.
  • Not in full bloom, but a nice park for a stroll. The vendors are very expensive, but expected considering the location. In June the flowers are not blooming yet...the flower beds looked to be full of weeds and not manicured. Enjoyed sitting in the green chairs by the pond relaxing, people watching and taking in the culture. Surprised the walkways are unpaved areas.
  • For art lovers, Jardin des Tuileries is the perfect place to visit. Statues by famous sculptors are placed all over the garden. Come in the spring time when the flowers are blooming.
  • The Tuileries is both exciting, bustling, crowded, and extraordinarily peaceful and serene. There's nothing better than taking a nap in the grass, picnicking among the hedges, reading a book in the chairs by one of the pools, drinking coffee at the cafe by the pond, or strolling down the main path to the Ferris wheel at place de la Concorde.
  • I was really blessed to get to enjoy a sunny weather in the middle of winter, so off to the Jardin des Tuileries we go! Start from Place de la Concorde and walk towards the Louvre. There are 2 big basins you can go feed some ducks, which I found superbly therapeutic. Beware though, the birds are passive aggresive. There's also a trampoline park you can get the little ones to expand some energy. I really enjoyed the walk down this beautiful garden.
