Jardin du Luxembourg - Paris

Jardin du Luxembourg

Immerse yourself in the heart of one of the most celebrated gardens in the capital and make yourself at home: you can even move the chairs.


We can be amazed by the disorder of the chairs strewn all around or we can give in to the temptation and make ourselves at home... The Luxembourg gardens are a call to rest. 

Orange groves, fountains (la Fontaine Médicis), sculptures, fruit gardens, bee hives and orchids make up this refined garden that also houses a museum. Le Musée du Luxembourg presents temporary exhibitions, usually dedicated to painting. 

Protected from the noise of the busy adjacent avenues, the garden, known as « Luco » by the Parisians, is an open, agreeable space. The basins are surrounded by children sailing their boats and the aisles offer an incessant ballet of sightseers and students from the Latin Quarter. The Luxembourg Gardens are also quite good for sport, full of runners, with basketball and tennis courts available. 

Don't miss the famous chess players: come rain or shine they come to challenge their opponent at the chess tables near la rue de Vaugirard, next to the museum. As you leave, take a walk around the outside to have a look at the marvelous photographic exhibitions that are hung on the fence.
