Parc de l’Orangerie


Avenue de l’Europe, Rue F.X. Richter – 67000 STRASBOURG
+33 (0)6


Strasbourg’s largest and most central park, and the one closest to the European institutions.
Since it was created in 1740, the park has been inspired by the English landscape style that was fashionable in the 19th century. The Josephine Pavilion, named after Napoleon’s wife, was built in 1804. After a fire, it was rebuilt identically in 1968. In 1895, the zoo and the lake were added. A botanical and artistic site in equal measure, the park is an important green oasis where local residents come when they want to reconnect with nature. It’s a place for resting, playing and jogging, but also for exploring a rich botanical collection, a zoo and numerous sculptures in many styles.
