The Fête des Tuileries is an annual event that takes place each summer at the beautiful Tuileries Garden. Most visitors to Paris find that a visit to this garden is the perfect way to spend a sunny Paris day. And now, the Fête des Tuileries makes the landmark even more enjoyable.
The Tuileries Garden was created in 1564, under the orders of the queen, Catherine de Medicis. After the French Revolution, the former royal space became a public park. In the 17th century, the garden had been completely renovated by celebrated landscape artist, André Le Nôtre. As a result, the Tuileries Garden is still know as one of the most beautiful green spots in all of Paris.
Considered to be a traditional “French garden,” visitors will no doubt notice the remarkable symmetry and order in which the garden and its features are arranged. Thanks to the Fête des Tuileries, visitors can experience the garden in a different and entertaining way from June 28 until August 24, 2014. The fair has been going on for almost 20 years, offering rides, food and games for adults and children alike.
Smaller ones will enjoy the wooden merry-go-round that dates all the way back from 1900 as well as the train ride, Ferris wheel and bumper cars. For more thrills, the high-speed merry-go-round (rotating at 140 kilometers per hour) and the rock climbing wall provide just a couple of example of the exciting offerings on tap.
Guests staying at the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier can enjoy the thrills and fun all contained within the relaxing setting of the Tuileries Garden. Since everyone knows that eating delicious snacks provides half the fun of going to a fair, the Fête des Tuileries also has cotton candy, waffles, churros and candy apples. In this way, visitors to Paris can spend an exciting day with friends or family in the Tuileries Garden.
