Paris Botanical Gardens : a wonderful day out

Paris Botanical Gardens is one of the city's most exquisite and tranquil tourist attractions. A place of calm and beauty where the visitor can easily spend an entire day strolling along shaded paths to admire elegantly designed beds of flowers and herbs, explore a maze, admire the painstakingly manicured lawns and visit the zoo and the Natural History Museum. This attraction is simply not to be missed, and is situated less than two miles from the Hotel Danube.

Originally built as a royal medicinal garden in the early 17th century, it was opened to the public in 1640. Following the 1789 French Revolution, the gardens became a public site. Today the most lovely swathe of greenery in Paris occupies over 26 hectares of the downtown and exhibits around 10,000 specimens.

Paris Botanical Gardens : so much to see and do

These foremost botanical gardens in France were an inspiration for the French Impressionist painters, and when you see the breathtaking riot of colour you will understand why. Here you will find gardens dedicated to the rose, iris and alpine plants, and greenhouses full of specimens originating in tropical climates from Mexico to Australia. There is also an Art Deco styled winter garden.

Take a stroll in the labyrinthine depths of the maze and enjoy the view from its central gazebo. Visit the menagerie which can trace its origins back to the collection of Marie Antoinette. Founded in 1795, this may be the world's oldest zoo. Don't miss the venerable Lebanon Cedar, planted in 1734. The Gardens also house the Natural History Museum and its fascinating displays and extensive collections spread amongst galleries devoted to mineralogy, entomology, palaeontology and evolution.
