Luxembourg Gardens, Paris

4.7
#1 of 3,718 in Parks in France
In the heart of the Left Bank, Luxembourg Gardens is arguably the loveliest park in Paris, with lush lawns radiating out from a pond centerpiece. Inspired by the Boboli Gardens of Florence, these gardens were created in 1612 by Queen Marie de Medici. Whether you're by yourself or with a whole group, this park is a relaxing reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can watch locals play the legendary French game of boules or simply stroll past over 100 distinct statues. Luxembourg Gardens is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Paris Edition.

  • My husband and I had a picnic at the gardens. We sat listened to other speaking French, English and whatever else. The weather cooperated and for 60 minutes just enjoyed a little bit of nature.  more »

  • Extremely pleasant place, with beautiful gardens, fountains and various chairs to sit, relax and enjoy the surroundings. Close to the Pantheon, you can combine both tours on the same day. Even the Jardin du Luxembourg is a place where the French do picnic.

  • What an amazing Gardens. When I went there it was bright and sunny and the flowers looked amazing. I noticed that there were certain areas being worked on, but that did not distract us from relaxing here after long walks. Go buy a nice baguettes and some cheese and enjoy a small picnic on the tables there. I would highly recommend this place.
  • A much needed large public garden with lot of statues everywhere. Nice to visit to bask in sunlight. Lot of ad shoots happen in this garden with models flaunting their best dresses.
  • Absolutely charming and delightful gardens. Beautiful topiary and flower arrangements avenues of delightful plane trees and maples. Circular area with fountains and seating for relaxation just to has to be on your wish list a place to die for
  • A great place to rest from visiting the city in charming greenery. Active people in the western part of the park will enjoy tennis courts, a basketball court, chess tables and other attractions. For the youngest on warmer weekends, I recommend renting a sailboat for 4 € / 30 min, which you can let on the lake with a special stick. When I was visiting the park, due to protests and riots some of the exits were closed.
  • Nice place for relax a bit in the middle of Paris, even when full of people. Look around and enjoy. Be careful not to step on the grass. The trees are lovely, too.
