Luxembourg Gardens, Paris

4.7
#1 of 2,506 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.

  • For tourist it is just a beautiful garden. But for locals and peoples who are living in Paris it's a very beautiful place. Day evening or night you can go there Hangout and enjoy your day.
  • Nice place to chill out in Paris for a short while. Well manicured gardens provide beautiful backdrops for photos. When I visited there was a live brass band playing here which was lovely to listen to.
  • A great place for the kids. There are boats you can hire to sail on the pond in front of the main building and the kids playground is excellent. My kids especially enjoyed the zip line that goes round in an oval. There us a small entry fee for the playground but it is well worth it.
  • The Luxembourg Gardens is a great out of the way place to visit. The gardens are beautiful and restful. The statues surrounding the terrace of the Palace are amazing. The scattered statues through the Garden are breathtaking and another Statue of Liberty is located here. The Gardens are surrounded by restaurants that you can eat at or take out and bring into the Gardens to eat under the sky. At a leisurely pace, you can view the entire Gardens in two hours.
  • The fantastic pleasure garden in the center of Paris. It's ideal for a break, relaxing stroll, sunbathing and admiring French and English style gardens. It features statues of the French historic people, fountains and many flowers. Kids will enjoy a pond, a puppet theater and a carousel.

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.
