Jardin du Palais-Royal
Before the construction of the Palace of Versailles, royal families lived here, in the heart of Paris. Today the buildings of the Palais Royal are home to major institutions such as the Conseil d’État, the Ministry of Culture, and the Comédie Française theatre.
At the heart of this magnificent architectural complex, you’ll find a peaceful garden. It’s the perfect place to take a stroll under the shade of the lime and chestnut trees, or read a book in front of the central pool.
Here you’ll also find contemporary works such as the fountain by Bury or the famous Buren Columns. Finally, you can also browse the shops under the arcades or enjoy a delicious meal at the Grand Véfour, the oldest restaurant in Paris and one of the city’s most highly regarded establishments.
Discover the Jardin du Palais-Royal through one of the treasure hunts in the Paris Region Adventures application specially designed for families and downloadable free of charge.
