For European Heritage Days in Paris, the Tuileries garden shows you all about its history. Guided tours expect you on September 19 and 20, 2020.

European Heritage Days 2020 in Paris are the occasion to celebrate the most emblematic treasures in town in a new light. Among them, the famous Tuileries garden. Walk with your family and join one of the guided tours held all day long. It opens to children from 7 years old. Meet on Saturday September 19 and Sunday 20, 2020 at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. for a playful one-hour tour.

Listed as historic monument and listed as UNESCO World Heritage, the Tuileries Garden is the oldest French formal garden in Paris. It’s actually where used to lay the now-disappeared Palais des Tuileries. Today, it’s one of the most legendary places in Paris and lives all year round to the rhythm of celebrations and other events.

This edition 2020 of European Heritage Days revolves around Heritage and education: learning for life. So, to stick to the theme, the Tuileries Garden offers you to show its unique past with guided tours focusing on Similarities/differences.

Enjoy engravings or old postcards representing the Tuileries and find what has changed and what has remained. A bit like a game, walk around the garden guided by lecturers and spot the evolutions that marked the Tuileries. If that tree has survived over the centuries, what about this statue? Perhaps has it disappeared, perhaps has it been moved... Who knows?! A wonderful walk catching our eyes to all the details of the garden. Free of charge without prior booking. Bring pens or colored felt tips.

Here we go!
