Bois Preau, Rueil-Malmaison
(4.2/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Built in the 17th century, Bois Preau once exclusively served Napoleon and Josephine Bonaparte, and then became a seat of the French government. Nowadays, the chateau houses a museum detailing Napoleon's captivity and death on the island of Saint Helena, the return of his body, and the Napoleonic legend. When you arrive, look for the statue of Josephine followed by busts of Napoleon and a larger-than-life statue of the emperor on his deathbed. Continue on to tour Josephine's private apartments, her collections of paintings, and her personalized gardens. Whether or not you have a particular interest in this period of history, the site makes a lovely area to walk around and explore. By using our Rueil-Malmaison travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Bois Preau and other attractions in Rueil-Malmaison.

  • A beautiful and very well maintained park. Lucky to have this Green Island to get out of the daily life of the city. Thanks to the Empress Josephine, who had a passion for Botany! A place where you can ask and run on the lawn... to the delight of the children (dogs are not allowed). You can find some cool summer with centuries-old trees that border the Park. A breath of fresh air, to frequent more often possible.

  • Park very pleasant, with shaded part and pure spaces play ball. Ideal for a picnic without going too far.
