Champ de Mars

Experience one of the most idyllic parts of Paris in this grassy park in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.

Lie in the sun at the park-like setting of Champ de Mars and peer up to enjoy some of the best views of France's most famous landmark, the Eiffel Tower. Take a picnic with you or just admire the poignant memorial, Le Mur pour La Paix, that stands at one end of the park.

Among the museums and beautiful architecture of the French capital, this sprawling green space is a stunning place. Rest your feet and relax during your city explorations. Originally used as a parade ground for military cadets after it opened in 1780, it is now a favorite sunbathing spot for city-goers.

Bring lunch with you. Enjoy a simple feast of tasty local cheese and wine while you marvel at the awe-inspiring Eiffel Tower. Get your camera out to capture that perfect shot or buy a print from one of the stands nearby. Try to beat the challenge of capturing a selfie photo containing the full height of the tower. Return after dark when the tower lights up from bottom to top in sparkling illumination.

Wander toward the far end of the park to the Wall for Peace Memorial. Built in 2000 and inspired by the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, it was designed by artist Clara Halter and created by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. It is one of a trio of monuments by the pair. Two similar ones are in St. Petersburg and Hiroshima. The high steel body is fronted with glass panels that are engraved with the word “peace,” written in 49 languages and 18 separate alphabets. Change position in front of the glass to identify the translucent words.

The Champ de Mars is easy to find directly in front of the Eiffel Tower. Walk here along the Seine quays from the center of town or catch the RER train to Champ de Mars Station. The park is open and available for use every day.
