Our Insiders' Article

Bois de Boulogne

The Bois de Boulogne is located on the western side of Paris. It is the second largest park in Paris (846 ha) right behind its eastern counterpart, the Bois de Vincennes. It is a place cherished by the Parisians for its cultural, leisure and sports activities, but takes on a taboo social turn at night, mostly because of its transgender prostitution. This hunting ground where kings Louis XV and Louis XVI, among others, spent time in now welcomes major horse racing, the world famous Roland Garros French Open tennis competition and the beautiful Fondation Louis Vuitton.

Making the Most of It

The Bois de Boulogne can be divided into 3 parts:

The northern part, with the Jardin d’Acclimatation and the Fondation Louis Vuitton

The central part, perfect for enjoyable walks amidst a bit of forest and artificial lakes. This is where you will find the Parc de Bagatelle.

The southern part, where the sports activities like the French Open take place.


The Jardin d’Acclimatation was created in 1854 by zoologist Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. It was a zoological garden known for having exotic animals. Today, it still has a few animals (bears, ostriches, monkeys, farm animals), but it is more of an amusement park for children.

The neighboring Fondation Louis Vuitton opened in September 2014 and is the most beautiful modern building in Paris, housing interesting contemporary art exhibitions.

The Jardins de Bagatelle are charming gardens located to the west. Its rose garden (the largest one in Paris), bridges, artificial lake and small palace is perfect for lovers!


For most Parisians, the Bois de Boulogne is all about walking, jogging or picnicking around the Inferior and Superior lakes to the east. In the summer, many couples rent rowing boats for a romantic stroll on the bigger lake (€10 per hour, closed in winter). Other gardens include the Jardin du Pré Catlan and the Jardin Shakespeare.

Another curious area is the Jardin des Serres d’Auteuil (Auteuil greenhouses), with an impressive display of exotic plants

Other notable buildings inside the Bois de Boulogne are the 2 hippodromes (Hippodrome de Longchamp and Hippodrome d’Auteuil) hosting important horse races or a picnic on sunday in summer and the Roland Garros tennis courts to the south.


As the land was improper to agriculture, it remained a large forest keeping the population outside. It was king François 1er who first set his eyes on the land and built the Château de Madrid in 1520 (destroyed at the end of the 18th century). The land became a royal hunting ground. In the 18th century, the kings being disinterested with the land, the protective fences were taken down soon became a popular place for summer strolls. But the aspect of today’s Bois de Boulogne is the work of French emperor Napoleon III and his trusted engineers Haussmann and Alphand. They turned the wild forest into a modern park with large fields, plots of forest and artificial lakes.


There are many areas in the Bois de Boulogne where you can buy something to eat and drink. There are also quite a few restaurants, such as the Chalet des Iles on the island of the Inferior Lake, only accessible by boat. In 1857, Napoleon III’s wife Eugénie fell in love with a chalet in Switzerland. The emperor had it transported by train all the way to Paris and reconstructed on the island. It later became a literary salon where famous authors such as Marcel Proust and Emile Zola would gather. Be it with kids, as a couple, with friends or as a sports fanatic, the Bois de Boulogne is definitely a green area in Paris that will suit everyone’s needs and expectations.
