#6 of 50 in Parks in Paris
Nature / Park
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.

  • Beautiful park landscape, large and away from the crowds. Pleasant in any season, but especially in the summer when it's hot. Good restaurants in the vicinity also.

  • The Park was designed in 1870 CA., and has remained as it was originally, they won't find tourists as well which is a hidden gem, if you arrive in subway fall at Botzaris and enter by the corner of the Park, run it and then take the subway back in the previous season. Very nice!!!

  • Very well maintained. Clean and good variety of plants. Indications inside could be improved. Great to visit during summer time.  more »

  • 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!
  • My favorite park in Paris! This park is huge so there are many places to discover. It is very beautiful and most likely wherever you sit down, you will have nice views. There is a few shops in the park as well where you can have a drink and chat with your friends. This park is very easy to reach as well, that the metro station is just next to it.
  • Very nice! Clean, well kept and large. You can go to do some exercise or simply to take a walk or even to have a picnic and you'll find it pleasant
  • It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been .if you want you want to relax and have a nice and peaceful day go there. Its also very good place for a fun family weekend .
  • Ran into some awesome, fun Parisians who told us the park's history. It was a mine hole and almost became a landfill to be covered over until an architect laid out plans to make this amazing park. 100% man made and gorgeous.

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.
