4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

This is the centerpiece green space of the Second Empire, transformed by Alphand to eclipse Hyde Park or Regent's Park and project Paris past London as the imperial center of Europe. When New York's elite began thinking of a Central Park for that city, they used the Bois de Boulogne as their model. Circle du Lac Inférieur, visit Parc de... More

Me and my boyfriend spent a good few hours in this lovely park. Amazing trees and lakes. We took the ferry over to the restaurant in the middle of one of the lakes. We didn't eat their but it was nice to walk around the island as it is quieter than the rest of the park. (Also a good place... More

I visited Bois de Boulogne (well, part of it) after visiting Musée Marmottan Monet. It is very close to the museum (about five minutes walking) and is definitely worth visiting. Bois de Boulogne is often compared to Bois de Vincennes on the east of Paris. Both of these forests are huge and you cannot see all of them in a... More

spent time in the Autumn in Paris, what a sight! this park is so beautiful and peaceful and simply spectacular. If you love just taking a walk and being at peace you have to check it out. It is huge, you cannot see it all in a day but just try to stop by for a bit. I believe you... More

Keeping moving and getting sun are two helpful ways to deal with jet lag. A couple of hours walking in the Bois de Boulogne after flying over was very nice, and there are places to stop for a nice meal.

We decided to spend a quiet Paris day here - it is really nice! We sat besides the lake bought a baguette cheese (cliche) and ate here. I can't say it wasn't nice! I do recommend passing by for an afternoon.

We visited on Sept 20, one month before opening day. The building is a knock out and will rival Bilbao! The water feature is pure genius. I know this review is early but if you are in Paris it is worth the effort to get to see it. Located on rue Mahatma ghandi. Metro maillot or Auteuil with some walking..... More

My sister and I visited the Bois de Boulogne to see the Jardin de Bagatelle on a rainy day in July. We couldn't find much information about how to get there so caught the metro and ended up walking a long way through the park which was quite pleasant despite the rain and the numerous joggers. Probably because of the... More
