The Jardin des Plantes

The Jardin des Plantes, located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, is an emblematic green space in the French capital, combining botanical richness and historical value. Founded in 1626 under the reign of Louis XIII by the king's physician Guy de La Brosse, the garden was originally conceived as a royal garden of medicinal plants. Since then, it has evolved into one of France's most important centers for botanical research and public education.

It is also a center for research and education. The Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, located on the site, conducts cutting-edge research in botany, zoology, paleontology and geology. You can also take advantage of numerous exhibitions, conferences and educational workshops organized throughout the year.

The garden is open all year round, with opening times varying according to the season. Entrance to the garden is free, although certain attractions such as the Great Greenhouses and the Menagerie may require a ticket.

It's easy to get there from the Hôtel du Jeu de Paume, just take metro 7 to Pont Marie in the direction of Villejuif-Louis Aragon and stop at Jussieu ! Enjoy !
