Bois de Vincennes

Located on the outskirts of Paris and accessible by public transport, this historic hunting wood for French kings is today a perfect place to get some fresh air or to do some sport.

Various marked trails allow you to discover Parisian flora on a hike or bike ride. With its Maison du Bois et du Parc, the Bois de Vincennes plays an active role in raising awareness about the preservation of natural spaces.
A boat trip on the Minimes lake is a romantic experience for two.

Children are made very welcome in the woods, with pony rides and play areas. The Ferme de Paris allows them to discover the world of a small farm.
The Parc Floral hosts various events for families and keen gardeners.

The château de Vincennes, dating from the middle ages and former royal residence, is at the entrance to the wood and is open to visitors.
