Description

From 17 September 2022, the gates of the Jardin du Luxembourg will host striking photographs of glaciers captured at altitude.

Mountaineer, photographer and audiovisual artist Ania Freindorf takes the viewer in her equipment to explore secret views of these giants of ice. Under an enigmatic bluish tint, the immense mountain walls caught in the frost take on fascinating shades of light. A touching testimony to encourage Man to preserve these natural beauties. A free, open-air exhibition.

Jardin du Luxembourg

Situated on the border between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the Luxembourg Gardens, inspired by the Boboli Gardens in Florence, were created upon the initiative of Queen Marie de Medici in 1612. The gardens, which cover 25 hectares of land, are split into French gardens and English gardens. Between the two, lies a geometric forest and a large pond. There is also an orchard with a variety of old and forgotten apples, an apiary for you to learn about bee-keeping and greenhouses with a collection of breathtaking orchids and a rose garden. The garden has 106 statues spread throughout the park, the monumental Medici fountain, the Orangerie and the Pavillon Davioud. There are many activities and facilities for children such as puppets, rides and slides. Adults, whether they are Parisians or tourists, can play chess, tennis, and bridge or remote control boats. The cultural programme is characterized by free photography exhibitions on the garden railings and by concerts in the bandstand.
