Buttes-Chaumont Park (Parc des Buttes-Chaumont) Tours

Buttes-Chaumont Park (Parc des Buttes-Chaumont)
Famed for its romantic ambiance and tranquility, the Buttes-Chaumont Park (Parc des Buttes-Chaumont)—located in northeastern Paris’ 19th arrondissement—may not be one of the city’s most-visited green spaces, but it’s all the better for it. Commissioned by Napoleon III, the park features a lake, waterfalls, ornamental gardens, and the Temple de la Sibylle.

The Basics
Covering almost 62 acres (25 hectares), the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont ranks among Paris’ largest parks. Constructed on a disused limestone and gypsum quarry, the park opened to the public in 1867, which coincided with that year’s Universal Exposition. The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont’s most recognizable feature is the Temple de la Sibylle, a Roman temple folly, which was designed by architect Gabriel Davioud and inspired by the Temple of Vesta at Tivoli. It stands on the summit of the impressive Île de la Belvédère and can be reached on foot.

The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont features on bike tours, as well as off-the-beaten-track-themed city explorations. It is also easy to discover independently.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont has several on-site eateries and bars, including the trendy Rosa Bonheur and Le Pavillon du Lac.
  • Entry to the park is free for all.
  • The park is accessible to wheelchair users via its main paths, though uneven terrain makes certain areas difficult to access.
  • Some of the best views of the park can be taken in from its 207-foot-long (63-meter-long) suspension bridge.

How to Get There
The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is served by the 7B Metro line, which stops at Buttes Chaumont and Botzaris. It can also be reached via the 26, 60, and 75 bus lines, as well as on foot, by car, or by Vélib’ bike.

When to Get There
The park is open daily. From May to September it opens 7am–10pm; from October to April it opens 7am–8pm.

Events at the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont hosts several major annual events, including the Silhouette Short Film Festival, held at the start of every September. Nuit Blanche, a late-night festival of art and culture that’s held in October, also sees the park decorated with various luminous installations.
Address: 1 Rue Botzaris, Paris 75019, France

Off-The-Beaten-Track Private Walking Tour

star-5
Some of the most interesting areas in Paris are in the less touristy neighborhoods often ignored by visitors. Once you’ve seen the main highlights, escape the crowds and discover another Paris. In more concrete terms, this service includes a private walking tour focusing on the main off-the-beaten-track neighborhood of Paris: the multicultural and working-class Eastern Paris. This service allows you to get to know the Paris hidden from guide books and tour operators. You will experience Paris like a local, far from the crowds of tourists and you will get lost in the small streets of Paris. Your guide will introduce you to the hidden places and secrets spots usually familiar only to Parisians. Please have in mind that Eastern Paris is full of hills, so this is pretty much walking up and down hills all tour.
