Every time I go to Paris I go there and I'm reminded that I think its the best garden in town. The garden is laid out for a leisurely stroll to occur past luscious flowers, topiary and landscaping with the majestic palace in the background. Its instantly calming. And instantly amusing - the people watching is great, tourists and locals... More

Spent a pleasant couple of hours strolling and sitting with a friend. Chatted, watched people, relaxed. In the centre of the city, yet so restful. A must for a break from a hectic schedule

Ponds, with kids pushing some sail boat, with sticks. Moms, people walking, a lot of talking goes on here, as it is behind the Senat, Near to the Universities. Statues, life, peacefull, among civilized people. Take a sandwich, a bottle of water and a book. I lived there a long time, and i can assure you this much: it will... More

Very stunning gardens. It seems like a great place to go running, for a walk or just relax by the pond on a chair!

This huge green space is filled with lovely gardens, statuary, and a huge central pond. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and the park was filled with locals sailing small boats on the pond, strolling, and enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery. There is no charge for admittance and Luxemborg Gardens is a really nice escape from the busy... More

A great park for a picnic. When stepping out of the metro station there is a small supermarket across the street perfect for buying drinks and snacks to bring to the park. There is also a McDonalds. The atmosphere is relaxing and the park is surprisingly clean (apart from a few cigarette stubs). Visited on a Saturday and there were... More

Beautiful and extensive gardens, with plenty of diversions including tennis, ponies, play areas, orchards, flowers, beehives, fountain/pond, music grandstand, statues, and quiet places to just sit and reflect or people-watch. A nice break from the hectic city.

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.
