Parc des Buttes Chaumont
is the largest public park in Paris after Bois de Boulogne, Bois de Vincennes, Tuileries Garden and Parc de la Villette. Situated in the 19th arrondissement
of Paris, this park is a wooded haven for those who want to escape the bustling city. If you’ve reserved your hotel in the French capital city center and would like to explore nature in Paris, Heart of Paris Hotels recommends taking the metro lines 5 or 7 bis to visit the Parc des Buttes Chaumont during your stay in Paris. For your convenience, all our hotels are close to metro stations so that you are able to visit all Parisian districts easily.
Parc des Buttes Chaumont is spread over 25 hectares of wooded territory, surrounding an artificial lake sourced by three waterfall brooks from the northern, eastern and southern part of the hill. Standing high in the center of the lake is Île de la Belvédère
, a 30-meter cliff island, the peak atop of which sits the famous Temple of Sibylle, inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Italy. Access to this steep island is by way of two bridges, Suicide Bridge (Pont des Suicidés)
and the suspension bridge built by Gustave Eiffel. Several grottos and little waterfalls offer visitors a cool reprieve during warm weather.
