The garden of the greenhouses of Auteuil

A beautiful walk in the greenhouses of Auteuil near the Bois de Boulogne in Paris.

The auteuil greenhouse garden (le jardin des serres d'Auteuil in french) is a very pretty park located next to the Bois de Boulogne. It houses greenhouses with a collection of tropical plants. The renovation of the Rollang-Garros stadium has led to modifications to the Auteuil greenhouse garden, new greenhouses have been created around a tennis court. The walk is short, the park is not very big, the visit is completely free. Do not hesitate to visit the greenhouses of the Auteuil garden. You can continue the visit to the lakes of the Bois de Boulogne if you wish.

You can also finish with a drink at the very chic Molitor the old swimming pool which is now a hotel with a bar/restaurant.

The tennis court

The tennis court
The extension of the Rolland-Garros tennis stadium was to encroach on the greenhouses of Auteuil. How can plant lovers and tennis lovers be reconciled? By building a tennis court surrounded by greenhouses! It's so obvious.

We may wonder if in this day and age such greenhouses still have an interest. Of course they are beautiful but there is a significant energy expenditure to regulate the temperature and hygrometry.
