Luxembourg Garden - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in Paris

Located between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin quarter in the 6th arrondissement, the Luxembourg Garden is a magnificent park of 23 hectares, with no fewer than 21 of these open to the public. Created in the 17th century at the request of the Florentine Marie de Medici, this haven of peace and greenery is inspired by the Boboli Garden in Florence.

Now part of the Senate estate, the Luxembourg park is dotted with a hundred or so statues and visitors can admire its French and English-style gardens, geometric forest arranged in a quincunx, magnificent Medici fountain full of romantic charm, heritage orchard and large pond surrounded by chairs, ideal for a relaxing sit-down.

Young ones can enjoy the wide range of play equipment and activities on site: roundabouts, slides, swings, pony rides, puppet theatre… it's impossible to get bored here!

To the north of the garden are the elegant Luxembourg Palace, the headquarters of the Senate, Petit Luxembourg, the residence of the President of the Senate, and the orangery which hosts temporary exhibitions in the summer.
