Description

The Magic of Christmas is sweeping through the Tuileries Gardens! For the festive season, more than 120 chalets have been set up in one of the finest royal parks in the capital. Good food fans will enjoy a ‘village’ featuring some 20 French regions and their culinary specialities, inaugurated by star chef Alain Ducasse! 18 artisans and 14 creators from the Paris Chamber of Trades will also be offering their creations. For children, a free theatre and the famous puppet show Guignol will be giving performances on Saturday and Sunday. Finally, a big wheel, almost 50-m high and a giant ice rink (1,400 m²) will delight kids and grown-ups. An authentic Christmas market where 80 percent of the products are made in France.

Highlight of the show: On 24 and 25 December, Father Christmas will cross the Paris sky on his sleigh pulled by flying reindeers, a unique world attraction. And a not-to-be-missed event in the heart of Paris!

Jardin des Tuileries

The Tuileries Gardens take their name from the tile factories which previously stood on the site where Queen Catherine de Medici built the Palais des Tuileries in 1564. André Le Nôtre, the famous gardener of King Louis XIV, re-landscaped the gardens in 1664 to give them their current French formal garden style. The gardens, which separate the Louvre from the Place de la Concorde, are a pleasant place for walking and for culture for Parisians and tourists; Maillol statues stand alongside those of Rodin or Giacometti. The gardens’ two ponds are perfect places to relax by. The Musée de l’Orangerie, where visitors can admire the works of Monet, is in the south-west part of the Tuileries. From March to December, free tours in French are organized. Lovers of candyfloss and fairground rides will enjoy the Fête des Tuileries, from June to August.
