Beautiful Serene Garden!

We were walking around the garden before we visit the Pantheon. The garden is a great place to sit down on bench and reflects the beautiful moment in life!

I was tired, hot and hungry. I came across a remote entry and found myself inside the Luxembourg gardens. Peaceful, historic, rustic and grand all at once. They provide respite for the body and inspiration for the soul.

This was our 2nd time to Paris and 2nd time to these gardens and they were just as beautiful as we remembered. And this time there was an orchestra in the park on a Saturday, what a treat!!

Past times in Paris I never been to this place and I can say it is wonderful. I was lucky to be there while the weather was warm and sunny so a lot of people. The gardens are very well kept.

The garden is a magic place and has a quite relaxing atmosphere. It's very easy to get there and the place is well connected with metro and buses. When I was there, I nice exhibit on fruits (apples, pears and lemons) was taking place. The place is for all ages and I strongly recommend.

Came here one afternoon and brought a box of macarons and a book. I highly suggest everyone do this and just people watch and enjoy the French culture.

Being in Paris, if the weather is good you can't skip this park (gardens). Lots of people doing physical activity in there, its a nice place for some pictures. Les Jardin du Luxembourg is also a nice place to have a seat and relax if you want to take a break during you walk around the city

This is the place to visit if you want to relax in a beautiful park. This place has a lot to see, beautiful flowers, sculptures, pavilions, people and it's few steps from the pantheon of Paris.

This park is a great place to spend some quiet time. We took our two kids on a Sunday morning and people were enjoying walks, runs and reading books. There is a play park but you have to pay entry. There is pony riding for the kids too. We didn't go into the palace but didn't feel we needed to.... More

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.
