Have visited these gardens many times and am impressed with the availability to sit on chairs supplied - freely - and bask in the sunshine or just watch the chic people pass by & meditate. Stunning flower displays. Can enjoy a glass of bubbly or a coffee in bistro inside gardens. Very civilised.

The gardens are enormous and very well maintained. In the autumn the sheets makes everything technicolor!

My young son will never forget this park, for it's unique feature: sailing miniature boats in the fountain pool. We'll never forget either, for this was one of the highlights of his young life.

These gardens are absolutely amazing in autumn! It's so nice to relax here with a good coffee and read a book or even people-watch. A friend and I spent at least two hours just taking in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings. Make sure to stop here after lunch to unwind.

I loved this place, we visited in the fall and it was just absolutely beautiful. If you go visit Paris, even if just for a short period, you really need to see this garden. There are a lot of children playing, parisians running and tourists strolling. Very romantic...

The well laid out gardens is one of Paris's most well laid out. I love strolling and enjoying the green within the city.

Visiting this place for the first time in October, we were met with a stunning 'Summers Day' picture of loveliness. This Park although highly recommended in guide books, can't in my mind be recommended enough. It is tranquil, colourful, beautiful, incredibly well tendered and thankfully well visited by families, couples, individuals all seeking a moment of pure indulgence. Long may... More

We visited here in Autumn so the trees were bare but the flowers were still in bloom. It was a lovely place to sit and walk around. There is a little cafe where you can get a coffee and croissant. You can walk from Notre dame to here in about ten minutes.

Many visitors to Paris go to the Tuileries garden because of it is close to the Louvre, but Luxembourg Gardens are more beautiful and much more spacious. A large pond in the middle is one of the main focal points. Take the time to sit in one of the many chairs around the garden and watch the children (of all... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood 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 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.
