A timeless moment at the Tuileries Garden
Published on 20 May 2018 in Visit Paris
A symbol of French gardens and an oasis of green surrounded by the capital's most beautiful monuments, the Jardin des Tuileries is a Parisian institution. Locals come here to relax, enjoy a picnic, or take family walk. Adopt the Parisian lifestyle in the Tuileries Garden during your stay at the Platine Hotel!
Picnic at the Tuileries Garden
The weather calls to us. It makes us want to walk barefoot, sleep in the shade of the trees, or picnic in the park with our friends or family. Treat yourself to one of the most beautiful places in Paris for your next al fresco lunch. With its gravelled paths, its superb views from the Louvre to the Concorde, its statues of Maillol, Giacometti and Rodin, and the refreshing water features, you'd be hard put to find a better place for an outdoor meal. Shop for your picnic lunch in the big stores and delicatessens on Place de la Madeleine!
The many attractions of the Tuileries Festival
During the summer months, the Tuileries becomes a fairground. The traditional carousels with their wooden horses and the shooting and duck fishing stalls fascinate children. Older kids can look for thrills in the 6G which rotates at a speed of 140 km per hour, while couples shouldn't miss the chance to take a turn of the Ferris wheel where they'll enjoy exceptional panoramic views of the Seine, the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées. Finally, the Fête des Tuileries is above all a festival for gourmets – it’s filled with timeless fairground treats like toffee apples, candyfloss, marshmallows, waffles and pancakes.
A Parisian stay at the Platine Hotel in fine weather? Treat yourself to a break in the Jardin des Tuileries for a romantic picnic or a family day at the funfair.
