Gardens such as this in the middle of a large city are a daily gift to the inhabitants and visitors of Paris. Full on any nice day. Seats are free now (they weren't always). The flower beds have been spectacular in color in the past. They aren't this year, when they seem colorless. Too bad for that but the gardens... More

Luxemburgo Gardens are awesome. I recomend to visit them in a Sunny day. You can spend the afternoon there reading a book or just looking the trees.

What an unexpected little gem in the heart of Saint Germain! Lots of people enjoying the park, a choral group was singing and the weather was perfect!! There were tennis courts, a man had miniature pony rides set up, and the flowers were gorgeous.

It's a city park at its best, where you can walk, jog or just sunbathe in a chairs available everywhere. It's a stylish traditional park with flowerbeds that gives your eyes a pleasure and rest. It's a history of Paris with old fountains and statues of French queens. It's worth visiting inbetween Musee de Orsay and shopping at Bon Marche.... More

Experience the good life at this park. It is great for people watching, perfect for kids, and an abundance of chairs to pick your favorite spot to read and relax. This park is a great sanctuary from the city.

A great place to visit! Bit of entertainment, but also peaceful. Beautiful gardens, and a gorgeous lake! Would suggest visiting!

These beautiful gardens are located in the heart of Paris, but when you're here you would feel like you were away from the crowded streets of the city. A must visit when you're in Paris!

I have periodically visited the Luxembourg Gardens since 1981. It is always a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding environs. A large circular model boat pond is located on the North side, usually plied with children's boats. Bocci bocci ball is played on courts to the West. The attended public toilets are clean and the charge... More

We walked all way the Luxembourg Gardens, walked inside hoping to find something special. Other than people running, reading and enjoying the sun, nothing great about this place, seriously.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood’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 neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
