Jardin des Plantes

Grandes Serres du Jardin des Plantes by Dear Laura Grandes Serres du Jardin des Plantes by Dear Laura Grandes Serres du Jardin des Plantes by Dear Laura Grandes Serres du Jardin des Plantes by Dear Laura
Located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, the Jardin des Plantes has had beautiful greenhouses for nearly 400 years. It's only a street away from my university campus and yet I never had the time to properly visit it. It features four greenhouses that can be visited in a row, with photos and informative texts for each one. They were the first greenhouses of this type to ever be built (around 1935). They reopened their doors in 2010 after 5 years of renovation and remodeling, and their architecture is beautiful. Among them, you'll find the large tropical greenhouse, the new Caledonia greenhouse, the deserts and arid environments greenhouse and finally the history of plants greenhouse. (entrance fee: 6€, 4€ for children and students)

If you have the time, take a stroll in the Jardin des Plantes afterwords. It stands out from the other gardens by its big variety of plants and trees that visitors can admire for free. Besides being the “garden of all gardens”, it's also a typical parisian resting place only two steps away from neighborhoods like the Marais or the Ile Saint-Louis.
