Across from the hotel
The Jardin des Plantes
Holding the title of “Jardin Remarquable” and among the four major botanical gardens in France, this garden boasts 10,000 living species and 800 m² of greenhouses across 7 hectares.
This English-style park at the very centre of the city, both a scientific and pleasure garden, attracts around 2 million visitors a year, of which more than 50 % are tourists. There is also a bust of legendary author Jules Verne, reminding us that he was born in Nantes.
The Jardin des Plantes is open daily, and the greenhouses can be visited from 12:30 pm.
