The Luxembourg Gardens, located between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, is a place that is not to be missed on a visit to Paris. In any weather, this is where the spirit of the city flourishes. The perfect geometry balanced by the welcoming ambience makes the gardens a great place to spend half an hour or a whole day! If...

This is one of the many small gardens in Paris that serve their neighborhood. This green space is in a very busy area near the Quartier Latin. It has benches, chairs, statues, water basin, trees and green lawns. It includes some typical places for kids to play. It is a destination over lunch, after work and on week-ends. Mothers come...

Every time we have been to Paris, we go to the lovely Luxembourg Gardens. Huge - lovely graveled walks - the large pond right after the entrance where kids sail their boats - and the flowers!! We have gone in spring, summer and this time, in the fall - I thought the flowers would be gone - but fall flowers... More

Instead of taking train or bus we decided to walk through gardens to hotel. Very enjoyable would have liked more time to sit and enjoy

An exceptional green area in the middle of the city where locals come to rest along the water basins or jog around when the sun appears

Flowers, green grass, petanq players, people watching- a wonderful place to sit and participate in the daily lives of locals. Grab a sandwich and coffee, find a bench, relax and observe all kinds of people.

Although the gardens are fantastic in the summer months, Luxembourg gardens is a special Parisian treat in winter too. A crisp morning stroll with a hot espresso in hand is one of my favourite weekend activities in the city. Relaxing on one of the many loungers, sit back and enjoy the sounds of bird life in the brush, the chattering... More

We went in January so it wasn't as charming as it could be but even then it was nice to get some fresh air. The fountain was lovely and the palace amazing, although you can't get close to it. It's a nice walk if you like outdoors.

It is a lovely expansive garden! I really enjoyed our visit here and if I lived in Paris, I would probably spend a lot of time here!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
