Parc de Bagatelle, Paris

(4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Situated at the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, Parc de Bagatelle is one of Paris’s four botanical gardens. Created in 1775, the park and its chateau were built in 64 days after a wager between Queen Marie-Antoinette and her brother in-law, the Count of Artois. This site is the perfect place for you to stroll and relax amongst the stressful days of sightseeing. As well as large trees and varied plant life, little bridges, rocks, caves, bodies of water, and artificial waterfalls add to the charm and romantic aspect of the park.

In addition, the 19th century Chinese pagoda is just one of the park’s many curiosities to explore, and you can also admire the magnificent rose garden with 10,000 rose bushes from 1,200 different species. The park regularly hosts exhibitions and events as well as classical music concerts in the summer. Parc de Bagatelle is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Paris Edition.

  • Here necessarily need to come during a stay in Paris, at least two hours. Take a book and after a short walk-to sit on a bench and read a few pages of a book. Will smell the flowers in the Park always something blooms will be approached Peacock and ask bread, will be flying rose petals: local Rosary is the most famous in France.

  • Make sure you visit when the roses are in bloom as they are the main attraction in this garden. It's not easy to get to, a very long walk from either the bus or metro. Still popular and lovely.  more »
  • If you have time for free enjoy "cultivated nature", if you have time just to spend, rather than tick off the list, be sure to visit the Park Bagatelle. Bois de Boulogne is a forest and Park Bagatelle is exactly the Park. Trimmed lawns where you can soak in the nice weather, huge fish in prudikah, peacocks and pavilions. Nowhere in a hurry and just surf, forgetting about the time!

  • Beautiful in summer when its flourished, the only inconvinient is you have to pay (only in summer).
  • It is a parc in a parc. Really nice place.
  • Gorgeously manicured park replete with a bunch of roaming peacocks and lovely water features.
  • Beautiful in the spring with the flowers.
  • A fairytale-like park, great atmosphere, wonderful plants and a few nice surprises.
