Visiting the Jardin des Plantes

The Paris Plants Garden History

The Jardin des Plantes, as the Parisians know it, isn’t exactly what it used to be in the past. That being so, the general design mostly corresponds to the initial garden. Its origins date back to 1626, when the Royal Garden of Medicinal Plants, also known as King’s Garden, was created. 

It was originally a place of preservation for naturalists. In 1718, he became the Royal Garden of Plants. After the revolution, the National Museum of Natural History was inaugurated, incorporating the Jardin des Plantes, a name that is used today. Its menagerie is also very old, since it was opened at the end of the year 1794.

Must-see spots of the Jardin des plantes

Among the spaces to absolutely explore, there is the Alpine Garden. It has the distinction of bringing together more than 2,000 species from low, medium and high altitude, and from various parts of the globe. 

You can then marvel at the plants that decorate the garden of Iris and perennials, located between the gallery of Paleontology and that of botany. 

What about other must-see destinations? You need to stop in the 4 greenhouses of the Jardin des Plantes, including the fascinating paleobotanical greenhouse dedicated to the evolution of the development of flora since the appearance of terrestrial plants. 

In addition, the Jardin des Plantes houses its own menagerie, where many residents reside. Come and say hello to the Seychelles Tortoise, the Panther of the Snows or yet the impressive Orang-utan of Borneo.
