A 5 km walk in a park 20 m above ground level is a nice experience. As reconversion of industrial heritage, in this case an old railroad track, the coulée is a succesful example. A green line in the center of Paris. In case you...More

This wonderful walk provides a great change of pace from the busy streets of Paris. Meandering through the city, yet entirely separate, this re-imagined railway line provides an amazing garden escape. We did this easy 5km walk on a weekend and it was surprisingly un-busy...More

We probably wouldn't have know about this, had we not been staying nearby. At home, we have the 606/Bloomingdale Trail. This was much better, the landscaping was much nicer; it's more park than throughway. It was like a nice relaxing stroll in the city without...More

Lovely park on an elevated railway track and the walk is about 4km, about 1hour. Lots of plants and shrubs. Not right in the centre of the city and the nearest metro station is Bastille.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
