Situated on the edge of Bois de Boulogne next to the **Fondation Louis Vuitton cultural centre, the Jardin d’Acclimatation is the oldest recreational park in France. It was inaugurated over 160 years ago by Napoléon III and Empress Eugénie and, with its 18 hectares of gardens and attractions, has been a favourite destination for families for many years.
There is a real funfair with 40 attractions and a 1900s steampunk vibe evocative of the works of Jules Verne. Must-visit attractions include the speed rockets, the flying chairs and the enchanted river. Then, embark on an adventure among the plants and wildlife in the interactive Kinetorium. An awesome immersive experience!
Continue your visit with the great aviary and the educational farm. With almost 500 animals, it is actually a small zoo, nestled among the park’s pathways. There are goats, rabbits, chickens and birds from all over the world - bring your children for some magical encounters.
For lunch break or snacks, we’ve got you covered: there are 12 eateries so you’re sure to find something to your taste! When you’re done, the famous little train will drop you off at Porte Maillot. And then there’ll be only one question on your children’s lips: “When are we coming back?”
