Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

Parc des Buttes Chaumont
After the heavy Easter brunch at Mama Shelter I felt a long walk would be appropriate given the fact I was filled up as a balloon. It has been quite a long time since I went to the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont so the choice of park was given. It’s location on rocky hill is quite amazing, here you can find a waterfall, lake and also a beautiful Sybille temple you definately should visit for taking a break and enjoying the breathtaking view over Sacre Coeur, totally worth climbing up the hill ;-)

It was Napoleon III that decided to have this amazing park created in Paris. In fact he demanded the baron Haussmann (that is behind the architecture of all the haussmannien buildings I love in Paris) that together with the landscape architect Adolphe Alphand designed this park that opened in 1867.

Perfect place for having a stroll or a picnic away from the buzzy streets of Paris…This is also where you find Rosa Bonheur, charming guinguette that I’ve yet not visited but have seen long lines of people waiting to get a chance to get in. A good sign, should try to go there next time ;-)
