Very pleasant and ideally located, this large green area of 14 hectares is filled with many surprises - including a balloon floating serenely in the sky above! On a beautiful day, head towards this haven of peace in the heart of the city, almost in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.
An elegant park in the southwest of Paris
Located in the chic and quiet 15th arrondissement, on the Left Bank, the Parc André Citroën borders the Seine and is just a few minutes from the Eiffel Tower and the Trocadéro. This beautifully designed green space was established on the former site of the Citroën factory, hence the name. Extensive, modern, verdant, the Parc André Citroën was built in 1986 and is comprised of several distinct spaces of great variety, all of which are fascinating to explore on a sunny day.
A balloon in the Parisian sky offers an incredible view
Among the surprises that the park has to offer are a tropical greenhouse, a splendid view of the viaduct of the Pont André Citroën, huge lawns vibrant with life as soon as the sun shines, and the world’s largest hot air balloon. Take a ride on this tethered titan to enjoy a breathtaking view of the city. The balloon is so large it can accommodate thirty passengers simultaneously. After the excitement of such an excursion, you’ll be happy to relax in the trendy and comfortable setting of the Hotel Eden, near the Parc André Citroën. Succumb to the charm of this new generation hotel, tastefully decorated and totally in tune with the times.
