“nothing really special...”

Les Jardins Suspendus

Reviewed June 14, 2014

Someone recommended that we should visit the gardens, but it was nothing special really. Perhaps the flowers hadn't bloomed yet because it was a bit cold the weeks prior to our visit, so it might be better to visit when it's warmer.

Far from usual Le Havre rush, reachable with own transport only, it's one of best places in the town. Old fortress converted into a botanical marvel. A lovely walk takes you to the ramparts with some fantastic views over Le Havre and it's bay, with flowering gardens set up (or being set up) on every bastion of fortress. This part is free of charge. In the courtyard there's a complex of greenhouses with some tropical plants - this part is available with ticket only. Definitelly a must in Le Havre.

Whilst this is a little out of the way, it is worth seeing. The gardens and grounds are delightful and the botanical collection is very good.

SO BEAUTIFUL! We followed signs from the center of town to Les Jardins Suspendus, and after walking for about an hour, we arrived at this gorgeous place. Even though the view was tainted by some fog below, it was perfect for a sunny day. You can wander around the fort which was captured and later liberated during WW2 and relax on a bench to admire the greenery. There is even a little cafe to relax. Only the French would turn a place of such troubled history into something so beautiful and welcoming. WORTH A VISIT!

This former fort is roughly divided in two parts: serres (ground floor) and gardens with vegetation from many continents. You can take the stairs or elevator to this part. By the way: you have a beautiful view point to Le Havre.
Free toilets, couches and chairs for the visitors.... we really really enjoyed this place.
