Jardin des Tuileries, Paris

4.5
#3 of 76 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.

  • This is our second time in Paris and we always end up wondering the the gardens next to the Louvre. They’re so beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. The chairs to lounge by the ponds are a must along wit...  more »
  • That night in the garden to drink nectar until more thirsty! It was a long time ago. Other pirates and other lookouts have knitted... However I cross it with at each time a pinch in the heart; It's my madeleine to me.

  • Anytime of year these gardens are lovely to walk through. Spring, summer, autumn, winter. Take a seat on next to one of the two ponds and have a sleep.  more »

  • Are you tired of walking in Paris or visiting museums? This is the best place for you! Except of really nice playground for your children, you can find here two huge mazes where you can "get lost" and admire beautiful bronze statues, you can find here two big and two smaller fountain ponds that are surrounded by chairs so you can just take a book and sit here to relax a bit, or just enjoy some sunny moment. Don't forget to take some snack with you as it is really expensive here!
  • Beautiful Garden The scenery and the people there add to the atmosphere. It just feels very serene and puts you at ease. One negative would have been the very large and distracting iPhone 7 ad on one of the buildings. Other than that, the garden is a must see.
  • Very nice place to have a picnic. One may also bring a little chair, as all the places to sit down are usually taken. If one takes a chair, they may also have a tan, if the day is sunny. Very nice to have a walk around and view a little bit of Paris. There are places to sit on the stairs. There are also fountains, which are nice to see.
  • One of the best spots in Paris. Great place to sip a coffee, read or people watch all in a beautiful garden on a sunny day. Strategically located between the Louvre and L'orangerie it is a great place to just relax after any of the museums in that area
  • The walk through the gardens was great. Busy but not crowded. Safe. Plenty to see and do. We walked from the Louvre Al the way to the Champs Elysees. It took a while but we'll worth it. Would do it again but not mind summer. It was too hot where there was no shade.
