Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, Paris

4.6
#6 of 75 in Parks in Paris
Wander around the lush green paradise of Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. This is the largest, hilliest, and least touristed park in Paris, where you'll find a real Parisian atmosphere. Climb to the top of the hill and overlook the north of Paris, with Montmartre before you. Walk over a suspension bridge to reach a decorative temple, which sits atop a steep cliff. The park has a waterfall fed by a natural spring deep underground, which flows into a lake. Make Parc des Buttes-Chaumont a centerpiece of your Paris vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Paris day trip planner.

  • I've been here a few times in 20 years. It's a little of the beaten track. I suggest that you start at Republque and walk north along Canal St Martin then turn north east near Jaures Metro. It's inter...  more »

  • This garden does not resemble those seen in Paris. It has its charm, with its rugged terrain, its games and sports activities, its huge trees, and its space break. Visit!

  • It was absolutely amazing!! Especially the getting locked inside part of our visit...There was no "10 minute warning" sound before all the gates were locked, and my companion and I were locked inside with DOZENS of others; we were forced to climb over the fence, which is NOT EASY TO DO unless you happen to be a gymnast or an acrobat...I would visit (and be locked in) again each time I visit this wonderful city. Just remember that CLOSING TIME MEANS CLOSED SO GET OUT BEFORE you're padlocked inside!
  • Beautiful, large park with plenty of trails, hills, a river and even... A cave with a waterfall! It was great for my family to walk one morning, taking a break from the busy city. You should take a couple of hours while visiting Paris, and maybe bring some baked goods and cheese bought at the nearby stores for a picnic!
  • A spacious park on a hill. There is a small playground for young children. There are many wide paved paths around and within the park. The park is locked p at night.
  • Extraordinary park developed from a quarry late in the Second French Empire with many vertical rock features such as artificially excavated stone pinnacles, cliffs, grottoes and water cascades.
  • Really big park in Paris, plenty of space to walk, lay on the grass, admire the lake. They even have a short hike that brings you to a nice view of the city.

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.
