When we were at these gardens last, they were in the midst of renovations. They seemed to have completed these upgrades. The Fall mums were planted but they were not nearly as impressive as last year's when they had beautiful cascades falling over the walls. The gardens are still beautiful and are well used by joggers, people with children and... More

This is a must visit for Paris. Rent a remote control sailboat for the pond and have a picnic in the very elegant park.

I came here on a grayish Saturday in late October and overall the gardens were nice but certainly not a must visit especially compared with other attractions in Paris. Perhaps they would be more enjoyable in the summer but this shouldn't be on the agenda for someone with limited time.

Phenomenal gardens. Expansive, colorful, fountains, stonework, and rows of exquisitely-kept trees. It's what the French senate deserves!

Lovely gardens laid out with great symmetry and bordered by the Palais de Luxembourg. Central Lake frequently filled with remote controlled boats and lovely tree lined avenues

Must see gardens in Paris. Everything from ponies to politics, sculptures and fountains, cafes and tennis courts. Whatever you fancy, it can be found in this park...

Don't you dare! Wake up as soon as possible and enjoy it. Without the crowds. Get acquainted with the French queens who overlook the inner lake and garden.

A must visit for any tourist in Paris. Although it isn't one of the traditional tourist spots, the beauty and expanse of the garden and how well maintained it is is amazing. A true testament to the love of a husband for his deceased wife.

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.
