Place Dauphine, Paris

(4.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Henry IV ordered the creation of Place Dauphine, named for his son, the Dauphin of France and future Louis XIII, who was born in 1601. One of the earliest city-planning projects of Henri IV, this sits on a site created from part of the western garden of the walled Palais de la Cité (Capetian kings lived there before the Louvre was built). In 1792, during the Revolution, Place Dauphine became Place Thionville, a name it retained until 1814. Today, you can find hotels, restaurants, and a peaceful park here. Many enjoy the spot for its views of Pont Neuf and the Île de la Cité. Put Place Dauphine into our Paris tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It is a square as a story, beautiful and gentle, quiet exit. Its beauty increases on sunny days and, in particular, now, in the spring. All a discovery!

  • Intimate, cozy, quiet and yet alive. I love this little square where young Parisians gather to play pétanque, drink a glass of wine and flirt with admirable style.
  • Perfect place to relax between site seeing. So much history here. Wish we could've stayed longer..
  • One of the prettiest squares of Paris, especially during sunny days. Quiet and bordered with nice, old buildings, as well as tasty restaurants.
  • A quiet place in a middle of the very busy, we all want to protect and conserve from the crowd ^^
  • Nice place to have a drink in a quiet area
