The garden got its name from the old tiles factories which used to occupy the site (tiles is called "tuiles" in French).
Tuileris' Garden remained almost unchanged since Louis XIV ordered it in 1670.
Jardin des Tuileries was designed by André le Notre the most famous French Landscaper of all time. Le Notre also designed several other famous French gardens such as the Palace of Versailles Garden, Vaux le Vicomte Castle's Garden and Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris.
Some great things to do when you visit Jardin des Tuileries:
- Have a rest
- Read a book
- Get suntan
- Go on a date
- Hang out with your Erasmus friends…
You can also enjoy seats for free! But before you go sunbathing we must warn you. Tuileries' Garden is more crowded than Jardin du Luxembourg so it will be more difficult to find a free seat in Jardin des Tuileries!
We also would like to inform you that the town council introduced a law about drinking alcohol at the garden, so no botellón in Jardin des Tuileries please, even if you have plastic bottle!
