Luxembourg Gardens, Paris

4.7
#1 of 2,503 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.

  • Our family live nearby so as we were invited to lunch we decided to do a long walk around the gardens in the morning to work up an appetite. Lots of interesting things to look at.  more »
  • The Luxembourg Garden is a delightful place to walk for the followers of the left bank! Everything is there to encourage contemplation and rest. We can decide to stroll down the aisles or sitting on benches or the many chairs arranged around the pool or at the kiosk. Out of the Park it is possible to have a drink at the Rostang, brasserie literary, to eat a small end to the little Switzerland or buy an umbrella at Simon, one of the oldest manufacturer of Paris, if the sky is threatening!

  • By far one of the cutest places in Paris. I loved everything about the Luxembourg gardens, the liveliness, the many benches to sit and relax, random art exhibitions here and there. I would definitely recommend planning to spend some time here just to relax and send some time away from the city while still in the city. There are many good bus connections right outside the park to easily jump right back into sightseeing.
  • Its beautiful . there are plenty of activities to keep kids entertained. when the city bustle becomes too overwhelming, meander around the paths and formal garden or just relax with a picnic. It's so calm and relaxed. Fragrance of flowers surrounds you. And the beauty you see in flowers make you feel happy.
  • Absolutely gorgeous! Give yourself an hour or so to explore the gardens. From the perfectly cut trees to the wonderful statues and gardens, it was one of my favorite experiences in Paris. If you enjoy sitting down in a calm and outdoor environment, I would recommend. Also a great place for photos.
  • So amazing. Very calm and relaxed atmosphere. As you stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens, you will run across a stunning modern art display that sets the stage for a curious juxtaposition of ancient and modern themes. You take a moment to indulge in the scenery and realize how cool it is that you are here - standing on very historic ground. The small little nooks and crannies that are luxuriously hidden add a sweet respite from the very small but abundant crowds. It's like your own little secret garden... If only for a moment. 💗
  • one of the most interesting places in Paris, according to me. If you don't go there during crowded days it's even better. on Sunday mornings you can see children "sailing" with their little boats in the fountain. There is a bar but it's REALLY expansive, bringing your own food/beverage is highly recommended, just keep the place tidy ;)
