Characterized by having the largest population of Paris, the 15th arrondissement offers a lively scene on all its streets. Its inhabitants are heterogeneous, and you can meet both powerful families and artists or students here. The 15th arrondissement is also often associated with its enormous concrete tower dominating Paris, better known as the Tour Montparnasse.

Not far from here is the Gare Montparnasse, which serves north-west France.

Even if concrete Paris does not attract you, you will be charmed by the two parks of the 15th arrondissement. The verdant parks André Citroën and Georges Brassens are the symbol of picturesque Paris. They guarantee you peace and quiet.

Finally, the 15th arrondissement houses the impressive Parc des Expositions located at the Porte de Versailles, where numerous exhibitions are held.

Routes for everyone :

for lovers of leisurely walks :

With the biggest population of the capital, the 15th arrondissement offers you a "concrete" vision. There are, however, some very pleasant spots. On the Boulevard Vaugirard you can discover the Jardin Atlantique with its rest areas, trees and fountains.

But the Parks André Citroën and Georges Brassens will charm you even more. The former covers 14 hectares and gives you the opportunity to relax alongside its numerous fountains, trees and copses, while the latter offers you delightful smells with its vines spread across the hills planted with little wooden houses.

And don't forget the Aquaboulevard, the biggest waterpark of Paris, where the whole family can enjoy itself or relax.

for lovers of culture :

Close to the Tour Montparnasse, the 15th arrondissement has a veritable collection of museums. You can visit the Musée de la Poste which displays a magical collection of stamps. If you are nostalgic about the artists of Montparnasse, go to the Cité d'Artistes, a true testimony of the era. You can then discover the works of art of the sculptor Bourdelle in the Museum of the same name. The Musée Pasteur will teach you about the life of the famous researcher, including the discover of the rabies vaccine - a true museum of scientific interest.

All around the year, the Parc des Expositions will allow you to discover its exhibitions, and if you pass along Quai Branly, stop at the Maison de la Culture du Japon which will show you all about Japan.

Finally, for lovers of the cinema, an unusual cinema, the Kinopanorama, will impress you with its 180º panoramic screen.

for lovers of shopping :

The 15th arrondissement is not of great interest for shopping although, as in all arrondissements, local shops line the streets. It should, however, be noted that the boutiques here are relatively expensive.

To remember : La Tour Montparnasse / La Gare Montparnasse / Le Parc André Citroën / Le Parc des Expositions / Le Parc Georges Brassens.
