Spring in Paris: Top 7 Best Cherry Blossoms Spots 2021

Spring in Paris: 5 Best Cherry Blossoms in Paris Fashion Travel

**UPDATED FOR 2021** As someone who grew up with Anime fever and a special obsession with Sakura the Cardcaptor and her cherry blossoms filled the background theme, my obsession with cherry blossoms is no news. I grew especially grew fonder during my first spring in Paris. I mean, my first spring in Paris was spent just looking for/at all the beautiful cherry blossoms in Paris.

 

That’s literally my first ever RDV with Cherry Blossoms in Paris in 2017 right in the middle of Trocadero Gardens!

 

So, as an update to my mini-blog-series: Spring in Paris, I’m putting together a list of 7 awesome spots where you find these pink beauties. However, before we get into it, there’re a few practical things for you to know.

 

When do you see Cherry Blossoms in Paris? And other things to know:

Typically peaking between the 2nd week of April and the 2nd week of May. If you’re lucky, they do go a week beyond on both sides. Spring can be a bit chilly or windy(+ rainy) in Paris if there’s no sun, so try to look at the forecast before going out to be well prepared. You do want to see the cherry blossoms in the sun for that’s really when they look their prime best.

The spots I mention below are also some of the best in Paris but that doesn’t mean they’re the only ones. So, don’t be surprised to find these trees in regular neighborhoods in the suburbs or even some streets around you.

For the best Instagram-worthy pictures, make sure you’re wearing a beautiful, spring-perfect dress (use this guide to choose your Spring Perfect Outfit). I have multiple outfits featured in this article, all from my partner site- SHEIN.

With that said, let’s jump onto the list.

 

1. Trocadero Gardens (Eiffel Tower Views)

If there is one set of gardens you really can’t miss is the Trocadéro Gardens or Jardins du Trocadero because that’s literally where the Eiffel Tower is. Created for the Universal Exposition in 1937, this green space of nearly 10,000 m² offers stunning views of the Tour Eiffel and homes a majestic carousel and the Warsaw fountains. You’ll find carpets of cherry blossoms here and all the beautiful architecture bundled together for your pleasure.

2. Parc de Sceaux

So, this is technically a suburb near Paris but I’m still going to count it because Parc de Sceaux is the It-Place for finding the cherry blossoms in Paris. It is, in fact, one of the richest cities in all of France and the cost of the park facing houses makes even the people here nervous. So, the views really must be something! So much so that, at its peak, this park is filled with tourists and wedding shoots (locals & foreigners). But despite the crowd, the long walks, and the distance from the center, it’s worth every last bit of effort. In fact, all my pictures in this shoot are from this neighborhood!

3. Jardin des Plantes

The botanical garden of Paris or the Jardin de plants is a park and a botanical garden open to the public, located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. It is the headquarters and the main site of the National Museum of Natural History of the city. Needless to say that amidst all the beautiful botanical life here are some of the prettiest low-hanging cherry blossoms, too. Making themselves not only scenic but also easier photographic destinations.

4. Parc Monceau

The rather green arrondissement of the city houses many iconic Haussmannian buildings and typical Parisienne cafes. The district is all the trendy and French you crave to see in Paris. Come spring, the Parc Monceau, a rather well-hidden gem of the city, becomes the center of attention. With all the intricate sculptures, rare plants, a carousel, and the Sakura trees. Yes, Sakura tree = cherry blossoms.

5. St. Michel Area

From the trees behind the park behind Notre Dam church to the dedicated tree right in front of the celebrated Shakespeare & Co. St. Michel area is easily a top pick for all the cherry blossoms in Paris action. Moreover, the area is much easier to access as opposed to some of the dedicated parks I mentioned earlier. So, if you’re in Paris for a short stay, St. Michel (after Trocadero) is the place for you to be!

6. Areas around Tuileries gardens
