Luxembourg Gardens, Paris

(4.7/5 based on 24,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Scheduling, sculptures, fountains, flowers of course, the basin to the small sailboats wooden, tennis, 1900 coffee, famous chairs. And especially this unique mix of tourists and students and professors of the Latin quarter, where the garden. Don't forget to see the hives which produce a Parisian honey 100%! The photographs on the grids of entries if you have time, often well chosen. For movie lovers a thought for the new wave films so often made in these romantic gardens.

  • This historic parc with it's castle show the french spirit. Just grab a coffee with croissant and find a chair near the fountain to read a book in the sun. 
  • The garden of Luxembourg is among the most beautiful garden in Paris. It covers 23 hectares, has a hundred statues, 3,000 trees and thousands of plants. It is of extreme beauty. This explains the 4 million annual visitors. Don't hesitate to spend a moment of discovery and relaxation. He was also

  • We visited the park since it was on our way to another monument. Can't say it was anything I haven't seen before, but it did look interesting enough with its pond and nice paths to make it worth our while. The little castle in the center was nice, but we didn't get to go inside sadly. There were also a few food stands, which I thought looked very folksy and simply "French." There was also the cutest little playground right next to the entrance.
  • Amazing park that really is excellent for children as well as Adults. My son loved it as he rode a pony, played with a model sail boat in the lake, watched a traditional puppet show, played in the playground and ate a lovely hot dog. Beautiful grounds too. Wish we had something as good as this in London. Our Royal Parks are excellent but this place has the edge.
  • The lungs of the Left Bank. A magical spot to bring the kids. On a warm summer's, instead of fighting for a dinner table on a terrace, bring a picnic to the Gardens.
  • After leaving the Pantheon, grab a Gelato from Amorino and take a walk and sit down in Luxembourg gardens. See the locals relaxing on their lunch break having a picnic with friends. We went in the end of October and the trees we beautiful. Such a pretty time to visit Paris. If you're hungry, grab a quick bite before you walk in and settle into one of the chairs like the locals and watch the pond filled with ducks and the sailboats of the little children. Such a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Paris.
  • Nothing short of awesome. Amazing gardens with some fantastic statues. Great place to spend an entire day reading a good book (as many Parisians seem to love to do). Lots of things to do here.
