Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the most beautiful parks of Paris, among Jardin des Tuileries and Jardin des Plantes. Lots of places to sit down and just relax in the sun. The main fountain area with the view of the palace is very nice. It’s a happy place full of kids, chair squatters, strolling talkers and lovers. The Grand... More

Running from a museum to another, take some time to relax here. Les Jardin du Luxembourg are the perfect place to have a rest in a sunny day, if it's warm outside you can also grab some food and have a quick lunch there. On Sunday you will find lot of Parisiennes jogging, reading a book or just relaxing. Furthermore... More

This place is very quiet and serene,i went there in a rainy day and benches were wet but i enjoyed it nevertheless. This would be perfect day out in a good weather. Don't forget to try the famous hot chocolate in Angelina while you are in the garden.

This huge 17th Century garden is great to walk through, even when we did in January when it must surely be at its least impressive. You get a really great feeling that you can't possibly be in any other nation than France as you wander down past the Petanque players.

It is a nice place to walk, breath some fresh air and gather lots of images, enough to draw an extraordinary painting!! Even though you may not want to, you relax there, no matter how stressful you feel.

You won't find many gardens in Paris: this one is definitely the most popular one! A nice way to visit it is to book a tour with a Paris Greeter guide: it's free, but you have to do it a bit early on... (3 weeks)

The Luxembourg Gardens, located between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, is a place that is not to be missed on a visit to Paris. In any weather, this is where the spirit of the city flourishes. The perfect geometry balanced by the welcoming ambience makes the gardens a great place to spend half an hour or a whole day! If...

This is one of the many small gardens in Paris that serve their neighborhood. This green space is in a very busy area near the Quartier Latin. It has benches, chairs, statues, water basin, trees and green lawns. It includes some typical places for kids to play. It is a destination over lunch, after work and on week-ends. Mothers come...

Every time we have been to Paris, we go to the lovely Luxembourg Gardens. Huge - lovely graveled walks - the large pond right after the entrance where kids sail their boats - and the flowers!! We have gone in spring, summer and this time, in the fall - I thought the flowers would be gone - but fall flowers... More

Instead of taking train or bus we decided to walk through gardens to hotel. Very enjoyable would have liked more time to sit and enjoy

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood’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 neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
