About
With its ornate 19th century buildings, large avenues, prestigious schools, museums and various parks, the arrondissement has long been known as one of French high society's favorite places of residence. The 16th arrondissement hosts several large sporting venues, including: the Parc des Princes, which is the stadium where Paris Saint-Germain football club plays its home matches; Roland Garros Stadium, where the French Open tennis championships are held; and Stade Jean-Bouin, home to the Stade Français rugby union club. The Bois de Boulogne, the second-largest public park in Paris (behind only the Bois de Vincennes), is also located in this arrondissement.

As the train strike continued, we ventured further each day. Today’s adventure destination was the Museum of Modern Art, (MAM) - another of the City of Paris’s free museums. To even get to the museum we had a long and enjoyable walk along the banks of the Seine and visited the Liberty torch that marks the site of Princess Diana’s tragic accident. There are still fresh flowers being placed on this memorial. As it turned out the Museum was a bit of a fizzer - three quarters of it was closed due to staff having difficulty getting to work due to the strike. Not the paid exhibitions obviously - always enough staff on hand to run them.

The Palais Galleria (museum) across the road from the MAM, was closed for renovation, however the beautiful green space that surrounds the museum was open, the perfect place for a typical parisian picnic/lunch, baguette filled with jambon and fromage.

We came here to visit relatives but really enjoyed our walk from the Metro station to their apartment. The streets are very clean and organized and the area is surprisingly lively. There are little villages here as well as very grand apartment buildings.

The 16th arrondissement on the Right Bank is one of the city's wealthiest areas and fun to wander through just to look at its elegant buildings. For example, more than half the structures designed by Hector Guimard, an important architect in the Art Nouveau movement, are here. Check Paris walking guides for independent strolls through neighborhoods in the 16th. These guides identify and give information about unusual buildings. I used "A Paris Walking Guide, 20 Charming Strolls" to amble through sections of this large arrondissement and learned a lot in the process.

Museums abound in the 16th with perhaps the Musee Marmottan-Monet being the most famous. It has about 100 paintings by impressionist painter Claude Monet, including "Impression, Sunrise," which gave the name to the art movement when a critic used the term in a review. Be aware, however, that the museum often has temporary exhibitions focused on other artists and stores many of the Monets during those periods.

Two blocks from the museum on the western edge of Paris, Bois de Boulogne covers more than twice the territory of New York City's Central Park. It holds woods, water features, picnic grounds, gardens, hiking trails, and the list goes on. I enjoy going there in daytime to enjoy a country ambiance in a major city. My most recent visit, however, occurred so I could see Frank Gehry's stunning new building, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, which stands in the Bois on the edge of Jardin d'Acclimatation. The Fondation features 13 giant glass sails supported by wood and steel. The masterpiece houses a contemporary art collection and will host big-ticket art exhibitions in the future. I found the collection unexceptional but the admission fee was well worth paying to visit the building's interior and to walk on its multilevel terraces.

What brings most visitors to the 16th, however, is the Trocadero overlook of the Eiffel Tower. The amazing view of this Paris icon is a photographer's dream. Across the street is Carette, my favorite stop in all the arrondissements for macarons.

My wife and I lived in the 16th for the last three months in 2018. We choose the 16th on a whim and loved it.
We stayed in an apartment on the Seine with the Ave de Versailles as our backdrop. We found Le Petit Versailles Cafe to be one of our morning haunts for coffee with the best croissants and the occasional dinner. Ms. Coppla's Giallo Oro Restaurant next door served the best veal we had during our stay, and he is a hoot. When you order the veal you know it's being done because you hearing hammering coming from the kitchen . Cafe Le Mirabeau down the Ave. is another stop for coffee in the morning or for Happy Hours at the beginning of the evening. There are also two great outdoor markets to buy your dinner within walking distance, or just off the Metro. There is an African Chef who prepares exotic treats that must be tried if you are up for a tasty adventure. She is wonderful as she talks to you while cooking and serving. Given the opportunity she will point you out to others that you are "le Mericans" with humor, as she smokes her cigar. This is all being missed by me as I tell this.

I live in this residential neighborhood and I love it ! Here is a Parisian neighborhood as everyone can imagine, thinking about Paris : peacefull, quiet, beautifull architecture, calm, green, hedonist, etc. It's perfect if you want to discover Paris while walking and taking time to soak up life. You can discover many things like the famous Trocadéro (from which you can admire the Eiffel Tower), the Haussman and Art Nouveau architecture buildings, the Bois de Boulogne and his two beautifull lakes (plus a great restaurant on the island -a bit pricey- that I recommend you for brunch), the Bagatelle Park (really amazing during spring season). If you like tennis you can also go to Roland Garros during the turnament, otherwise all year there is a museum and a shop. Losing yourself in the streets, if you open your eyes you will discover some different views of the Eiffel Tower (at night it's very nice too). You will see some private streets (and maybe see some celebrities), great restaurants and cafe, go through the Chemin de fer de la Petite Ceinture, arriving in Passy district and shopping, then going to relax in the Ranelagh garden, doing Victor Hugo Avenue shops, walking along the Foch Avenue to go to the Arc de Triomphe, etc.
Finally, you really can discover a lot of things (museums, buildings, streets, parks, shops, restaurants) in the lovely 16th arrondissement of Paris.

(Sorry for what I'm sure is horribly-mangled French in that title.)

The 16th is off the tourist trail, thank goodness, but has lots of beautiful sights that are worth checking out.

First on my list is the Musée Marmottan, devoted mostly to Claude Monet, and including works my others such as the underrated Berthe Morisot. This is probably my favorite museum in Paris.

I also love wandering the streets of the 16th, seeing posh beautiful people and homes. Some beautiful embassies too. I particularly love the Art Nouveau buildings by Guimard, my favorite of which is Castel Beranger. As one gets near the river, there are some one-of-a-kind views of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower. And there are remnants of old village Paris, such as rue Berton.

Check it out! (visited April 2015)

May be because of too many wealthy people live in 16th Arrondissement, other people don't want to disturb their expensive peace. I think may be wealthy people who live in this area don't know how to enjoy life as full as us, as a tourist:)
beside that I think Paris is beautiful regardless of the number attached to Arrondissement.♥

Due to the unusual borders of the 16th Arrondissement you'll find major attractions (Blois d B, Trocadero, Arc de Triomphe, Marmotan) and the affluent housing areas to the NW. Tourists at the attractions for sure, but not many in the bulk of this stately area. Nice hotels, cafes, neighborhood restaurants, shops, boutiques, markets and the usual of Paris. Generally find an older crowd away from attractions. I like the Passy area, but it's pretty residential. ...

I lived here when I was studying in Paris, so this quartier will always be dear to me. But, it's also, in my opinion, one of the chicest places in Paris. If you like consignment stores, you will love it here. Chanel, Prada, Armani, you name it, are all here for a really good deal. There are at least three or four great stores here. There are also some truly delicious, albeit expensive restaurants.

The area we visited in the 16th Arrondissement had the best views of the Eiffel Tower, that is not situated in the Seine. As we ventured further along though, there wasn’t much to do and the people there weren’t too friendly. We don’t have time for stuck up people so we left.
