Les serres d’Auteuil

The greenhouses of Auteuil host rare plant and animal species. Dating from the 18th century, they are a true botanical wonder.


Located in the Bois de Boulogne, the Jardin des Serres d’Auteuil is one of the four areas of the Paris botanical garden. Created in 1761 by Jean-Camille Formigé (1845-1926), it combines French formal gardens, 19th century architecture and the exotic beauty of tropical plants.

The most notable features are the five greenhouses: the main greenhouse, the East and West greenhouses, the palm greenhouse and the azalea greenhouse. They are remarkable for their 1900 style: iron frames painted in blue-green. Some form a 99m long monumental structure and house a beautiful Palmarium, in which visitors can admire an aviary, Japanese carp and unusual plants.

The site hosts more than 5,500 plant species but the garden also possesses remarkable trees, notably a ginkgo, a cork oak, an ailanthus and a Chinese wing nut. The park also boasts numerous flowers and blossoms, ranging from roses to peonies.
