Historical Information

The Jardin des Tuileries is a park in the heart of Paris and is situated in the first arrondissement. What used to be the garden of a castle was commissioned by Catherine de Medicis in 1564 and was redesigned many times in recent years.

It was only after the French Revolution that the park was accessible for the public. In 1981, Francois Mitterand started to reconstruct the park in a way that it got the look of the 17th century Jardin des Tuileries. The park today still includes the traditional Orangerie with the Musée de l'Orangerie and many works of art on nearly every corner.

The Jardin des Tuileries is, because of its central location between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, also a popular meeting point. With the course of time the former Italian-style garden got recreated into a French-type of garden such as the one in Versailles.
