Discovering Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Paris has many neighbourhoods which are like small villages, each having its own distinctive character. The Hotel Danube occupies a privileged position in the heart of one of the most exciting of these: Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Let's set off together to discover this district full of surprises.

 

Saint-Germain-des-Prés: culture around every corner

Saint-Germain-des-Prés is perhaps best known as the favoured district of the writers, artists and intellectuals who made it the cultural heart of Paris for a good part of the 20thcentury. On the terraces of the Café de Flore and the Deux Magots, you can still sense the ghostly presence of Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Marguerite Duras, Juliette Gréco, the polymath Boris Vian, and the filmmakers Jean-Luc Godard and FrançoisTruffaut. But Saint-Germain-des-Prés also retains an exceptional heritage of churches, including the one from which it takes its name, prestigious institutions such as the Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint) and the Théâtre de l'Odéon, and museums like the Eugène Delacroix. And don’t miss the Rue de Verneuil, where the former home of Serge Gainsbourg is unmistakable due to the graffiti and tags of his admirers.     

 

Shopping and gastronomy

Antique dealers and galleries rub shoulders with bookstores in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. You will also find many shops of famous brands. And when you get hungry on your culture trail or shopping spree, there’s plenty of dining options available. If you love sea food, don’t miss the Huguette bistro de la mer and its starters, main courses and desserts at very reasonable prices. Freshness and flavours await! You cannot miss the green facade of the Maison Sauvage. From breakfast to dinner, a varied and tasty menu awaits you in which organic produce is given pride of place.

 

Your Hotel Danube is the ideal base from which to explore Saint-Germain-des-Prés and its treasures. Situated between the Seine and the Jardins du Luxembourg, the district invites you into its world of culture, gastronomy and shopping.
