Our Insiders' Article

Buttes Chaumont

The Parc des Buttes Chaumont (Chaumont Hills Park) is the most uneven park in Paris, with a 30m difference between its lowest and highest points. Many Parisians from all over the city gather here. The mix between the posh areas of the west and the working class neighborhoods of the east creates a unique and “cool” atmosphere. This ancient quarry is now a favorite spot for joggers, sun tanners and picnickers.

Making the Most of It

Whatever the season, there is always something great to do in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont. In the summer, you will find a lot of Parisians sitting on the green slopes, enjoying their baguette, cheese and wine picnics. In the winter, the same slopes are the best places in Paris to go sleighing (provided there is snow!). As for fall, the magnificent brown, yellow and orange colors of the trees will leave you mesmerized.


Belvedere Island, a 30m high island in the middle of an artificial lake, is the main highlight of the Parc des Buttes Chaumont. The walk up is not too difficult and the view on the Sacré Coeur Basilica is one of the best. The “Temple de la Sibylle”, built in 1869 by architect Gabriel Davioud, dominates the hill.

The water of the lake comes from 3 different streams that you will see flowing through the park.

One of the streams enters the Parc des Buttes Chaumont as a waterfall inside a cave. This cave used to be the entrance to the underground quarry.


The 65m long metallic suspension bridge used to access Belvedere Island was designed by Gustave Eiffel, better known for having built the Eiffel Tower. The second bridge used to access the island is the 22m high stone bridge, also known as the Suicide Bridge after a series of well publicized suicides.

There are 4 interesting statues inside the park, and a variety of unusual flora, such as a giant sequoia tree.


During the French Revolution in 1789 and for 90 years following, the Buttes Chaumont Hills were exploited to extract limestone used for construction. The area was also used as a dumping ground and a butchering place (mostly for horses).

In 1860, the area became an integral part of Paris and plans were made to redesign the quarry into a public park. In 1867, the new park opened for the Paris Universal Exposition.


Before 1760, the gibbet of Montfaucon was a stone’s throw away from the Buttes Chaumont. This gibbet was a large structure in which 45 people could be hanged at once and left to rot. The gibbet was guarded by archers so that relatives or medicine students would not steal the bodies. Today, the Parc des Buttes Chaumont is all about laughter and good times, especially at Rosa Bonheur, a popular bar and finger food restaurant located inside the park. Get there before 6PM to avoid waiting in line.
