Beautiful when the sun shines but overcrowded
Nov. 2021
Beautiful gardens but lots of people and not always as clean as it should be. I am surprised that these gardens are listed as the 4th place to visit in Paris. Other gardens are more beautiful and natural in my opinion. Anyway, this is a 'must see' at least once.

Always great!

Lovely gardens, lots of places to walk and sit, as well as interesting statues to view. It was cold, but nice to walk in the sun. A nice reprieve from the busy touristy areas.

Stunning floral goodness
Oct. 2021 • Solo
Visiting the garden happened by chance and I am so glad that it did! I was out for coffee and walked over to the Eiffel Tower and just kept walking. The garden is massive there is so much going g on. People doing tai chi, pétanque, yoga, tennis. There were kids on a statue scavenger hunt. There is so much to see and so many nooks and crannies of floral goodness, each one more beautiful that the next. It is very safe as there are armed guards. I can’t wait until my next trip

Beautiful park on a sunny November day
Nov. 2021
We ambled through this beautiful park on a sunny Saturday in November. The blue sky made this historic building and surrounding gardens so much more photogenic and there were families and couples enjoying the space. Definitely worth a visit.

Great sunrise and surrounding greens

Walk, jog, play tennis or just enjoy this rather large and scenic park. Don’t miss the Statue of Liberty - this is where it it.

Beautiful Park in Paris
Dec. 2020
The Luxembourg Gardens is a wonderful place in the Left Bank section of Paris. The Gardens are a wonderful place to "people watch". On a nice weather weekend in Paris, you can expect a large crowd in the park. There is room for many.
Our hotel was on "Rue de Vaugirard" close to the "Boulevard Saint Michel", so we were close to the Gardens which we enjoyed many times.
Many times we were engaged in conversation with the students from the Sorbonne who practice their English. The students seemed to know that we were Americans. It was like there was a sign on our forehead.

The Luxembourg Palace is a large building close to the exit on "Saint Michel'. The sessions of the French Senate are held in the Palace Building. Originally, Palace was built for Marie De Medici. It a beautiful structure.

Beautiful gardens.
Nov. 2021 • Couples
We were happy to see these gardens open as many times we have visited before they were shut.
Like all gardens in Paris it was I maculate. All trees cut to the same design which gives the park the crisp, uniformed feel.
The wonderful water feature encourages people to grab and chair and take a moment to pause.
The gardens surround the beautiful Luxembourg Palace.
Lovely places to eat. We are at the La Terrasse de Madame which was amazing.
A visit to the Medici fountain is a must. This fountain is extremely beautiful.

Best park in the world
Oct. 2021 • Friends
At any time of the year, in any kind of weather, this must be the best park in the world. It is absolutely beautiful. Allow yourself 2-3 hours to wander and explore each part of the gardens. There are fruit trees, bee hives, a small lake where children sail small boats, watch the boules being played by locals, sit on the green seats which are everywhere, find all of the statues and just wander. There are a couple of places where you can buy some coffee/small snacks to eat. My recommendation is to take your own picnic. There are several metro stations and bus stops within minutes of the entry gates. To appreciate Paris is to appreciate these gardens. Highly recommended.
