The Jardin des Tuileries (Tuileries Garden), which extends between the Palais du Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, is a favourite hangout for tourists and native Parisians alike.

A bit of history

Hundred-year-old trees, a pond for sailing miniature boats, music pavilions, sidewalk cafés, a funfair… there's no shortage of space or things to do! The Jardin des Tuileries is named after the tile factories that once occupied the site. In 1553, Queen Catherine de Medici decided to have a park built there. And in 1664, Louis XIV entrusted his famous gardener André Le Nôtre with redesigning the garden in a French style.

An open-air museum

It's hardly an exaggeration to say that there are as many statues as trees. You'll see works by Rodin, Maillol and Giacometti, as well as the Welcoming Hands by Louise Bourgeois, Reclining Figure by Henry Moore, le Bel Costumé by Jean Dubuffet and the Brushstroke Nude by Roy Lichtenstein. Located indoors but well worth a visit, there is the Musée de l'Orangerie, which houses Impressionist and postimpressionist works such as the Water Lilies by Monet. And there's the Jeu De Paume, an essential stop for connoisseurs of contemporary photography and of course… the Louvre! What's more, the garden is constantly hosting cultural events (open-air exhibitions, music and dance festivals, etc.). Jardin des Tuileries Place de la Concorde, Paris 1er

Brigitte, 39 MOTHER

Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
