If you happen to have a day to spend just sitting and enjoying a picnic, this is the place to do it. There's a central area with statues etc. that divides into walkways into many directions and inbetween these walkways there are lawns and rows of trees catering for the wildlife - birds and insects. All flowers & trees are... More

Great gardens, my favorite in the city. Nice to relax in. In the summer there are free concerts at the gazebo. Beautifully maintained.

A relaxing spot in the middle of a city, as many others in Paris. It was pretty on a rainy day so it must be even lovlier in the sun. Great for picnics.

We came here for a morning walk before breakfast. It was an unexpected surprise because it looks so small outside and when you go in you realise how lovely it is and large. Gardens ponds and beautiful view. Not to be missed if you are in the area

A pleasant stroll in the gardens that is impeccably kept. You can sit beneath the trees or by the fountain, have an ice-cream or a crepe and enjoy the royal gardens created by Marie de Medicis You can try the famous Dalloyou macarons just opposite the gardens or relax over a cup of coffee at Rostand cafe.

Despite the fact that I have been countless times to Paris I had never been to the Luxembourg Garden and it is just lovely!! Very pleasant for a stroll and then to grab a coffee in one of the terraces around the garden! Glad I visited his place

The park is very peaceful. There are a lot of walking trails where you can see beautiful flower gardens and shade trees. There is a large bassin where you can rent a toy boat and sail it in the bassin. There is a sidewalk sandwich place right across the street on the Boulevard St Michel. Why not get a sandwich...

Vast and expensive gardens near the city. Recommended on a summer or spring day to just relax.. Nothing to shout about.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
