Strolled through Luxembourg Gardens after following Rick Steves' Left Bank walking tour. Such a serene setting with Parisians sketching the sculptures, reading books and kids hanging out on the lawns after a day of school. Picturesque and relaxing.

Children can rent boats and float them in the fountain, couples walk through manicured gardens holding hands, soccer games happen at the gates, and families sit in chairs around the palace talking for hours. This is a favorite and must see park experience. Bring a...More

We discovered this quite by accident while strolling through the city. On a beautiful early June evening, the gardens were filled with people walking, jogging around the perimeter, playing ball court games, sitting on blankets talking, reading books in quiet wooded areas. So peaceful. Beautiful...More

This garden is so beautiful that you can have seen lots of others and you'll still get impressed. Such a beautiful and calm place inside Paris, where you can take a drink in a café inside the park and contemplate the view.

Was not much of a garden compared to gardens I have seen e.g. in Italy. Vast open spaces without much trees and shrubbery.

It's a toss up on who enjoyed this park more, me or my 3 year old son. We both loved sailing our rented model boats around the fountain, great fun for 4 euro. From the small cafe he got ice cream, I had a beer....More

We stopped in the garden to talk with our guide about things and you can lose sight of the beauty and history that your sitting in. Great place to break from tours and sight seeing and just chill.

I loved going here! Such a beautiful place to spend a sunny afternoon with a picnic! Be careful because sometimes the chairs fall backwards!

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

Hello !!! We are likely to pay a visit to Paris in this July. This will be our first visit so we are a little confused about the pre-booking procedure of attractions. I have a query that whether the Luxembourg garden needs to be ticket bought or it is open for visitors ?will be grateful if you let me know ! Thanks !

This space is a public park in a beautiful neighborhood in Paris! Best to go around noontime that way you can join in the fun and share a true Parisian moment. You can even bring something to eat on a bench there! Enjoy!
what does it cost??

I have to admit I've never been there before 9:00am or after 9:00pm but as other reviewers and readers state I too suspect the gardens are open daily from 7:30am to at the very least sundown. Enjoy.
