Jardin des Tuileries

Jardin des Tuileries, Paris

(5 296)

The Jardin de Tuileries is the largest park in the city. It is 1 kilometer long. The garden is in the center of Paris, boasting a nice landscape and an abundance of works of art.

The Jardin de Tuileries is a French styled pleasure garden and you can walk its paths with the views extending from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe. Trees line its lanes and you can see flower bushes and floral arrangements around.

Many statues of famous people are in the Jardin de Tuileries, accompanied by the statues of creatures from myths. Take a look at the richly-decorated Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. The reliefs illustrate victories of Napoleon Bonaparte, while the figures adorning the tops of the columns illustrate the corps of his army.

In summer, the children can enjoy a fun park at the northern edge of the garden. The Ferris wheel offers an engaging ride and marvelous views.

Once, the 4th wing of the Louvre existed here, known as the Tuileries Palace. What remains of it houses two museums. The Musee de l'Orangerie displays works of art by famous artists, while the Jeu de Paume is a photography art center.

    Awesome park with nice Paris skyline view. There's a lot of activities but not too crowded. Recommended to visit in the evening as you can see the Eiffel Tower being lit up and the new Paris Flyer.

    It's lovely! Spacious, so even though there are a lot of people walking around it doesn't feel crowded. Nice place to relax and enjoy nature.

    The walk through the gardens was great. Busy but not crowded. Safe. Plenty to see and do. We walked from the Louvre Al the way to the Champs Elysees. It took a while but we'll worth it. Would do it again but not mind summer. It was too hot where there was no shade.

    It was January with a wind driven hard cold rain when I visited so please keep that in mind when seeing my ranking. I am sure it is extremely beautiful in the summer but in winter there is not much to see except long vistas along the river. Plus was there was not anyone hassling me as I tried to keep my umbrella from flipping out in the wind.

    Webt here in out trip to Europe in 2012! The garden is magical, it brings you back to another time! It is definitely a must see location. It is very romantic and would make a great place for a proposal. So if you find yourself in France anytime soon make sure to take some time to stop by and visit the garden.

    Lovely garden! It's very grand, sometimes the police go through on horse. There's some cafes and a carousel within the park. It's a nice little walk if you're visiting the sites nearby. At dusk (or dawn) the view is breathtaking.

    The gardens are very pretty. Even in winter. A perfect place for a stroll. On one end you see the Louvre and the other a giant ferris wheel (Dec 2017). There is a nice cafe on the ground as well which serves tasty hot chocolate to warm you up after a nice cold walk. Well worth the visit/exploration.

    This garden is immense. probably 12-14 large city blocks. It is divided into quite a number of smaller and larger areas...some have restaurants, some have statues and benches, some have lawns surrounded by flower beds. There is a carousel. There is a playground. There is a large promenade from one end to the other. There is an immense fountain with a built in seating on it's edges and dozens of benches and chairs around it. The fountain area has an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower.

    It's really pretty here, and free, which should be enough. However, I'm giving an extra shout out for the public toilets at one end of the garden which were in a little building that also sold drinks and souvenirs for making for a particularly pleasant pee.

    Very nice garden in the most touristic place of Paris. Normally full with people. A great place to go in a nice day. Bring your book or child. And enjoy the nice garden and the views of few of the world's best museums around.
