I have visited these gardens 3-4 times during all my stays in Paris. They are truly beautiful. You find a lot of different trees and flowers. It's a very good place for a picnic and a nice walk. There are hidden statues everywhere you walk.

One of the most beautiful gardens in Paris. Ideal for couple, family and children, also for a ice-cream and to take a breath.

During my recent visit, the weather was perfect for a stroll through the gardens and a picnic. Sandwiches are available across the street from the entrance, so pull up a seat and watch the little kids play with their boats. Pure paradise.

Although the park is very crowded during the warmer months, it's still one of my favourite places to go to get some peace in quite. The landscaping is exquisite, perfectly trimmed trees and colorful blooms everywhere. High recommended to visit while you're in Paris!

This was a side visit, and though I went at 5:00 on a chilly, windy day, I loved my time alone there. The garden is huge, and everywhere there is something beautiful to see. The bright flowers, the reflective pools, the perfectly trimmed trees, the stately statues all contributed to the elegance of the park. Yet all around you there... More

In addition to the multiple, colorful, manicured gardens and lawns, this is an ideal sport for people watching. Alive with older folks, couples, and children, there is plenty to see. Children romp around play areas, sail boats in the large pond, or discover other wonders as they walk about. Everyone is happy here, and the park with all its open... More

This is an attraction "must" when the weather is nice in spring/summer/autumn time. And not just because of the beautiful flowers, but also to have a pic-nic on the grass...and enjoy the park like the locals do :)

Good for a picnic! This place is nice and peaceful, not too crowded by tourists. Perfect to unwind, take a walk around to digest your meal (we went after breakfast).

A great place to escape the city. i had to juse my imagination a little here as being spring it was not very 'green' yet. a lovely place to have a picnic, view some architecture and just relax. 15 minutes from the catacombs and 5 minutes from the pantheon. Hope this was helpful guys!

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.
