Jardin des Plantes lantern festival is back from November 29, 2021 to January 30, 2022 for the third edition. The Evolution en voie d'illumination walk is magical and takes us to an enchanted universe.
This is a very successive event with a theme changing every year. For the previous editions, passersby enjoyed the Océan en voie d'illumination and in 2017 with Espèces en voie d'illumination that saw 370,000 visitors in two months.
This year, travel back in time through 500 million years of the life history to discover now-gone species. Unlike the previous ones, this edition shines a light on extincted and little-known species most of them having never cohabited with men. This nighttime stroll invites you to experience evolution through time. On the menu, a hundred never-before-seen monumental structures, some are even almost 30-meter long.
(Re)discover this stroll by night that turns into an atypical experience to enjoy with friends and family to discover the monumental light structures set in the alleys and on the pitches of the Jardin des Plantes.
All in all, dozens of monumental light structures we can discover all along our walk, staging different universes. Dive into the ocean or dinosaurs' fantastic universe.
The route is paced with descriptive texts telling us more about the different animal species. Between little-known or disappeared species, you can expect fantastic discoveries.
Finish your tour within the Jardin des Plantes menagerie where lovely and hand-painted lanterns light up the path.
