Nestled in the heart of Paris's 5th arrondissement, the Observatoire Luxembourg Hotel serves as an ideal starting point to explore some of the capital's most beautiful green spaces. Whether you're a nature lover seeking tranquility or simply looking for a spot for a morning walk, the surrounding parks and gardens offer a serene escape amidst the urban hustle and bustle.

Jardin du Luxembourg: A Parisian Must-See

Just a few steps from the Observatoire Luxembourg Hotel, the Jardin du Luxembourg is a true haven of peace. Created in the 17th century at the initiative of Marie de Medici, this garden spans 25 hectares and is divided into two parts: one French and one English. In addition to its shaded paths, central basin, and imposing statues, the garden hosts various cultural and sporting activities that delight all audiences. Visitors can also admire the Senate, located in the Luxembourg Palace bordering the park, adding a historical dimension to the beauty of the place.

Arènes de Lutèce and Square René-Viviani: A Dive into History

Another hidden treasure nearby is the Arènes de Lutèce, witnesses of Paris's Roman history. These ancient arenas, rediscovered only in the early 20th century, offer an unusual and historical setting to rest and escape the city's hustle. Not far from there, Square René-Viviani provides a more intimate atmosphere. This small green space is famous for housing the oldest tree in Paris, a robinia planted in 1601. With a stunning view of Notre-Dame Cathedral, this park is perfect for a reading break or a romantic picnic.

Staying at the Observatoire Luxembourg Hotel not only offers comfort and elegance but also easy access to enriching green spaces. Whether for jogging, reading a book in the shade of century-old trees, or simply breathing fresh air, the parks and gardens of the 5th arrondissement enhance your Parisian experience. Visiting these places is an ideal way to complement your stay at the hotel, adding a touch of nature and history to your trip.
