The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighbourhood.
How to get there
  • Ledru-Rollin • 5 min walk

We went running there on a weekday and on a Saturday morning.
The place is beautiful, quite and calm. Very well maintained.
An absolute pleasure to get out of the city while in the city

A surprise!
Oct 2019
Coulee Verte Rene-Dumont is an elevated walkway in the city. We took a detour while wandering the streets and found ourselves in this walkway purely by chance. However we did not have much free time so only spent a short time there. It is quite a great way to get out of the heavy traffic and noise. Perhaps we will return another time.

The original High Line
Oct 2019
An escape from the busy Paris streets, this former overground tram line has been transformed into a very nice walkway with lots of green and nice views over the streets of Paris and sometimes even into apartments. If you have seen everything else, this is a nice alternative on a sunny day and can take you all the way from the Place de la Bastille to the Bois de Vincennes.

Lovely Urban Garden
May 2019
New Yorkers who love the new High Line should visit the original High Line in Paris. It's much older and more sophisticated design. Designed as a series of 'Rooms' with different floral plantings. each one different from the next.
A little hard to find, but located behind the new Modern Opera near the Place de la Bastille, where there's a set of steps up a very plain facade - but what a great experience lies beyond. At street level there are a number of unique stores built under the arches which support the former railroad bed. Great at sunset too.

Elevated park
Jan 2020
Over the years, as we’ve had short visits to Paris, we’ve always planned for ‘the big one’ - the visit when we could finally do a lot of things on our ‘One Day in Paris’ list. Finally, on a chilly but sunny day we walked out to Place de la Bastille, and just a wee bit further to reach the Coulee Verte / Promenade Plantee / Greenway, an elevated park on the top of an old railway viaduct. The park was inaugurated in 1993 and until New York’s High Line park opened in 2009, it was the only elevated park in the world. What a fabulous walk we had - no scooters or bikes and only a couple of joggers. We did a couple of kms (the walk totals 4.7 km if you go right to the end) and then did a u-turn and came back part of the way before taking the stairs down to street level and walking along the Viaduc des Arts.

Paris' High line
Dec 2019
Although this one was earlier made, the New York's High line is more famous. The Paris' one is set south of Bastille sq.
This gardened path runs along a disused railway line for few km, and is a pleasant elevated walk through a residential area.

Calm walk above busy street life
Dec 2019 • Couples
Certainly worth doing when you are staying in the neighbourhood. Gives you the opportunity to have a walk away from the busy streets, but still in the middle of town.

Pleasant promenade above Paris
Mar 2019
To convert an old overhead railway line into a verdant promenade was a brilliant idea. We strolled along part of it and although it was at the beginning of March, there were signs of spring; and although it was cold, the walk was invigorating and warmed us up.

Slightly underwhelming
Sep 2019
The idea of hanging garden on the former railway truck bridge is amazing. However, the choice of bushes/plants and the minimalist un-inventive design give it somewhat sterile (if not gloomy) impression.

Nice relaxing walk in the centre
Nov 2019
A nice break from the concrete jungle. Reminded us of the Highline in New York. Quite long (~3 km of 'green' in total), and relatively busy while we were there - but still a nice change from the city. Because it is elevated, you get a nice view of the surrounding apartments and houses.
