A stroll in Vincennes – take time to go back… in time!

Did you know?

Vincennes has over 750 retailers and more than 130 restaurants, bars and brasseries.

Vincennes cultivates quality of life, with 8 Vélib self-service bike stations, 6 km of cycle paths, and a 30 km/h maximum speed limit on two-thirds of the town’s streets.

A unique place, fit for a King!  

As a listed Ville d’Art et d’Histoire (town of art & history), Vincennes is full of architectural gems, ornate buildings and listed heritage features, including the beautiful Town Hall with its elegant blend of Neo-Renaissance and Art Deco styles. Charles V was born here, Louis IX played here as a child, and the château was a royal palace for a very long time… but then the Pathé studios came to town and made Vincennes an icon of the film industry.

A Parisian village

A stone’s throw from Paris and just a short distance from the Bois de Vincennes and the lakes, this town is a real peace haven for walkers. The cobblestone streets, wide pavements and pedestrian areas make it the perfect place to stroll and ogle at the shop-window displays: bakeries and patisseries, delicatessens, chocolate shops, butcher’s shops, fishmonger’s and markets… And you’re sure to find great quality and rare products, because the people of Vincennes know about – and love – food!
