If you can fit this into your trip to Paris, I highly advise you to do so. It's free to go there & there is beautiful architecture, sculptures, and grounds. Often locals set up shop and paint and frankly you could be entertained people-watching or simply taking a relaxing walk through the grounds on the way to your next destination.

My children and I have spent many afternoons in Luxembourg Gardens enjoying the retreat from the sun and business of Paris. There are play areas, fountains, tennis courts, table top tennis etc and simply "green space" to enjoy. We usually stay close to Luxembourg in order to enjoy what the Gardens offers in and amongst Paris.

Stroll around the flower beds, watch the sail boats on the pond,sit in the shady cafe with a cool drink, sit and read a book - it's what the Parisians do!

Perfect for a stroll, sit and read a book or just pull up a chair and people watch. Great little garden vignette throughout. I would like to take some ideas home especially great creative color/ plant combos, just stunning.

The most beautiful park I've ever been to. Bathrooms were very dirty, even though you have to pay for them.

We arrived in Paris at 4 pm by train. Decided to walk up to the Gardens after enjoying a cool drink in the Brasserie opposite. It was a balmy Autumn evening. These gardens are magnificent. Not only are they visually spectacular due to the design, buildings , fountains, other water features and flowers, the ambiance there is totally romantic and... More

Very pretty especially on a Sunny day. A nice place to wander and stop for a rest under the trees. Watching the children playing with the small boats was fun.

These gardens are not only huge but wonderfully maintained, laid out and presented. There are chairs scattered all around for you to kick back and relax in the Paris sunshine, or to watch people as they walk past. As seems to be the thing you do in Paris. I spent an hour or so just wondering the gardens and taking... More

The gardens are a nice, serene place to hang out or stroll through while in St. Germaine. You can take a picnic lunch to get away from the hustle and bustle of Paris.
