Attraction details
Owner description: Situated on the Rive Gauche (left bank) of the River Seine and sharing the Montparnasse district with the 6th and 14th arrondissements, it is the city's most populous arrondissement. The Tour Montparnasse – the tallest skyscraper in Paris – and the neighbouring Gare Montparnasse are both located in the 15th arrondissement, at its border with the 14th. It is also home to the Parc des Expositions which is near the Parc des Princes and houses Porte de Versailles exhibition centre, the high-rise district of the Front de Seine (or Beaugrenelle).

It is the largest arrondissement by both area and population.The famous skyscraper Tour Montparnasse as well as the neighboring railway station Gare du Montparnasse are both on the eastern border of the 15th arrondissement, although the actual district of Montparnasse is right across the border in the 14th arrondissement.

The district has many restaurants to cater to the public since it is next to the Arrondissement of the Eiffel. Many hotels are also close nearby

I spent a month living in Paris and I stayed in the 15th arr. I would completely recommend it and encourage anyone to spend their time in the 15th trying as many different restaurants and cultural experiences as possible. I will definitely be coming back.
The 15th is great because it is on the outside of the city so you are away from all the touristy areas and you can see how most people live their lives. The 15th is also one of the largest districts so you can do a lot without having to leave the immediate area. I recommend touring the Tour Montparnasse, swimming at AquaBoulevard, and renting a city bike to explore the area yourself to name a few.

Pari's most populous Arrondissement, middle class residential. Not a lot for the tourist to see here, but if you want to see where real people live, take a look.

The 15th is a real folksy area of Paris, where real Parisians really live, not the 1% living in enormous buildings.

Lots of cool restaurants, and open air markets. It's not really a place for tourists unless you want to get a feel of real Paris.

On the left bank of the Seine, you can find Tour Montparnasse, the tallest building in Paris. It's an attraction in itself, especially at night.
