A beautiful formal garden for the most part, austere in a pleasing way, adjoins the French Senate building and museum. A pleasant place to stroll since Marie de Medicis built her palance here

I have been to Paris and this is definitely one of my favorite places to visit. Beautiful and tranquil. You feel like you are truly experiencing the essence of the city. The architecture of the palace and surrounding landscaping in the heart of the city are a must see.

The best gardens in Paris and the home of the French Parliament building. Often has free concerts which I thought were great. I went back several times as it is also very peaceful.

If you search a moment of quiet in paris, choose the luxembourgs gardens. I like this place, it was an amazing garden. You take a chair, you sit, you look around, you are really in Paris.

Great in the summer/Spring! there are chairs all over the garden that you can take to sit and take in the sun while you people watch or read a book. In the summer it may be pretty tricky to snatch a chair, you just have to be patient and as soon as you see someone get up swoop in before... More

One of the main attraction of Paris! A lovely park, ideal for walking, resting, reading a book, sunbathing, watching Parisiens' routines, having picnic or ice-cream! The best time to visit is spring & summer.

I love the formality of parts of the gardens along with the old buildings - but I like just as much some of the less formal parts such as the area taken up with the locals apparently enjoying very much their boules and each other's company. Paris has other wonderful gardens.

This a special park in Paris. I stayed in the area and enjoyed an August afternoon simply walking, and sitting in various locations to relax. It is a gem and a great place to enjoy some beautiful open space in Paris.

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.
