Jardin du Palais-Royal | A romantic garden in the heart of Paris


Discover this sublime and romantic square in the heart of Paris!

The Palais-Royal was built at the request of Cardinal de Richelieu in 1634. The regent, Anne of Austria, moved in with her children in 1661. The palace later became the residence of the Orléans family. Philippe d’Orléans, in around 1860, had investment properties built to close off the edges of the garden. Under the arcades, the shops were available for rent. The garden’s peaceful appearance today reveals none of the revolutionary agitation in the shady dens that existed there in the 18th century. Charles X (1824-1834) made the final changes to the garden. Today, the Palais-Royal is occupied by the Ministry of Culture, the Constitutional Council and the Council of State. The grey and white striped columns by Daniel Buren were installed in 1986. The entrance is via Place Colette (where the Comédie Française stands) or through the pretty Passage Perron (on the Rue des Petits Champs side). Throughout the year, you will find passers-by strolling and passing the time under the arcades or in the garden. When the weather is fine, they can enjoy the pleasures of the garden and sit by the fountains in the green chairs that can be found in all the nicest gardens in Paris. Lovers make appointments to meet here, too. The sounds of the garden and the happy cries of the children in the playground blend into background noises. Come along and discover it. If you don’t have a lot of time, then you should still try to fit a stroll through it into one of your itineraries around the city to breathe in its rather special atmosphere…
