Very nice site. Fountains, statues and great buildings. Take time for a visit to "Musée d'histoire" and the "Musée des beaux Arts". It's worth it.

the whole thing is a big piece of kitsch in stone, now additionally undergoing some major reconstruction. there is no water for the time being and really no reason to come out here for visiting. also the park behind is not really something special.

Really nice park and palace. Nice views and a great place to just enjoy some sunshine. The Boulevard Longchamp leading up to the Palais is carfree (only trams) which made the walk very pleasant.

On a small hill in the centre of the city is this architectural gem. Though undergoing restoration at present and will be until 2020, you can still get the feel for the grandeur of the place which was built in order to supply the city with fresh water. There are some good views of the city as well. There is... More

This place has a very beautiful building architecture and garden. Wish we had more time to go up the stairs to appreciate the place. Lovely walk during nice weather.
