Beautiful, relaxing, historic World Heritage Site

How typical of Paris to combine history, natural beauty, and fun for everyone. The banks of the Seine are a World Heritage site, and to open them up for Parisians and visitors to fully enjoy, the city pulled out a roadway and turned it into a park. This fulfills a dream of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century kings who took the initial steps to turn Paris into the first city for walkers by building bridges and laying paths, opening up stunning views over the river for everyone. Now, visitors to the Berges de Seine can enjoy the beautiful river views while strolling, running, bicycling, skating, or enjoying other amusements along the path. There are many options for refreshment, from stands and outdoor tables to moored restaurants and picnic spots. A walk along the Berges de Seine can be started at the Orsay Museum or by taking the Metro to the Alma-Marceau stop and crossing the Pont D'Alma to the left bank, not far from the Eiffel Tower. A sharp left off the bridge leads to the Seine walkway. This is the way we did it. More ambitious walkers could go out to the Eiffel Tower for a visit, then hoof it down the Seine to the Berges. This is largely off the beaten tourist track and a refreshing break from the mob scene at all the famous sites. It also allows visitors to mingle with Parisians enjoying a day of relaxation in their home town. It's a wonderful addition to Paris, and the city is continuing with more park development along the Seine. As in centuries past, Paris is leading the way in showing how a great city's premiere spots can be opened up for enjoyment by everyone.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walking along any part of the Seine is nice, and this park provides additional space for relaxing and recreation. With green space and benches and walking paths, there is much to enjoy. This is a great spot to watch people and boats while enjoying a picnic.

We walked along Les Berges de Seine one delightful afternoon in September 2017. On the left bank it extends from near the Tour Eiffel to the Musee d'Orsay and provides stunning views of the many bridges across the Seine and the structures on the right bank. It is also provided a welcome and restorative break from the hustle and bustle of a day of touring.

I walked from Quai de Grenelle along the Seine all the way to the entry to the Promenade des Berges. There was light rain the entire walk and it is much cooler than it has been (19 degrees when I set out late morning). The floating park is really nice. It was so quiet; there was not another sole there the entire time I visited. There are planted gardens all around the walk. There are some benches, but not a lot. It is open until 21h00 in summer, but closes earlier in winter. I really enjoyed the visit watching all the boats go by. I walked to the end (or the start depending upon which side you begin at) which is just across from the big Bateaux Mouches organization.

The best thing that can happen to a city's riverside. Instead of cars you have joggers, cyclistes, a lot of couples and friend on a pic-nic. It has a good wibe

Overlooked that Musee d'Orsay closed on Mondays, so we ended up walking along the Berges of Seine to other museums and Eiffel Tower on foot. It used to have a lot of games for children to play along the Seine, most of them have been washed off by the flood in mid of 2016. There were a few games left to play with and my sis and I enjoyed playing with other children and at the same time enjoying the view and summer weather. Many people jogged or skated, walked their dogs. We stopped a few times to take photos of the architecture. If you are not into walking, you can opt for cruising along the Seine. We preferred walking and stopping whenever we feel like it, many great photo opportunities! We too noticed a lot of mobile bar set along the Seine, they were closed during the day, supposed to be very happening at night.

The weather in early December was just right for strolling along the Seine. We found a lovely floating garden and wrote our names on a chalkboard.
Hopefully this has been such a success that it will be open next August when we plan to visit Paris again.
